Nice Fall Day in Golden

Did a local ride from the house today (Chimneypex > Dakota > Zorro > Green Mnt) 33 miles 5,000 feet of gain.  Trails are in great shape following a week of rain and cooler weather.  Mountains are picking up quite a bit of snow seems winter is arriving early this year.

Grinding up Chimney.....

The beast.....

Looking very winter like on the divide

Elk chill'n on top of Green Mountain

New section of Box'O really nice work by COMBA on this trail and all of Green Mountain.  The park is riding really nice with re-worked trails across the network.

White Ranch

Was planning a ride in Breck but things looked wet and cold up there this morning.  What was an overcast and cool day on the Front Range decided to ride local and head to White Ranch.  Ended up doing most of the trails in the park.

Been a long time since I have done the full was a good reminder of how fun those trails are.  Just need to be ready for the effort needed to ride up there.  Steep technical trails up and down...a lot of hard climbing, but I was feeling good today and cleaned a bunch of sections I have not before.

Ended up with 23 miles and 3,800 feet of climbing.

Maine (Day 2)

Day 2 Dave took us across the road from Sugarloaf for more fun trails....the local trail group is doing a really nice job around Sugarloaf putting in some really fun trail with a mix of technical rock sections and fast flow.  Good stuff and a pretty large network in place already with an aggressive plan to keep building.

Riding bikes is pretty fun
