went out to the bookcliffs (AKA: the 18 mile) after work tonight with (*deleted*) and met up with 3 other guys for a quick scorch up Prime Cut to Zippity and finished off with a super fast blast down Kessel Run. we did that loop in about an hour with a brief respite to repair a broken chain. Kessel was groomed so nicely from the recent rains and riders it seemed like it had been swept clean with a broom.
considering how much precipitation has fallen in the area since wednesday, the trails are in remarkably fine condition. like buff-smooth and excellent.
several riders have reported similar trail conditions at the Kokopelli's trail area at Loma, and that Rabbit Valley is in top condition as well. there are a few puddles to deal with here and there, but for the most part, everything is DRY AND RIDING right now.
have a great weekend, everyone.
We love bicycling as a lifestyle, culture, and sport. We love to ride, build, restore, oggle and sometimes race bicycles. We also love to talk on at great length about our ideas, opinions and exploits involving all of the above. Welcome to our BLOG!
Abandon Your Car is not a slogan or ideology so much as a reminder to all of us to get away from our petro-mobiles as often as we possibly can and embark on life as an adventure by bicycle.
We'll keep you current on the important road and trail beta from our home bases in Palisade and South Routt, Colorado and shower you with our .02 cents about the ongoings of bicycle tribes the world over.
Be sure to tune in for Danny, AKA: the Young Apprenctice, providing the ever important perspectives of a highschool bike geek and all around brainiac in his NORCAL Updates.
We're glad you're here- look around, drop the Bike Master a line and then get out and ride for awhile- you'll be glad you did!
