It has been so cold on the Front Range...really all over Colorado and most of the country. Prior to more cold and snow coming in we headed down to GJ last weekend....it was still cold there, low 30's...but the trails were dry and the sun was out.
Ended up with 3 rides about 31 miles and 5,000 feet in vertical gain...not bad for December.
Day one Loma trails in Fruita.
Day 2 Lunch Loops Grand Junction....this was a new to us trail system. We haven't done any riding in this area for a couple years, as we always go to Moab. We will be back here, the trail system is amazing and some friends from Moab joined us, made for a great day. Techy stuff back there, didn't cover a lot of miles, but climbed 3,000K over 4.5 hours.
Day 3 we tried to go out to 18 Road and ride, but it had snowed right there and only there so we headed back to the Lunch Loops for a quick ride before heading home. Lakota joined us on this ride and he did really well with the temperature being in the 30's.
