Yesterdays MTB ride! (Pics)

A buddy and I went to Jones Downhill, really is a great ride, Had a pinch flat unfortunately. But ran across a guy with a spare tube so we managed to get going again! Trail starts on the lower portion of Mt. Baldy (a little up from frost park) and drops you off behind the Broadmor. The initial climb is a but rough as you quickly climb to 10,500 but it's more than worth it! Most of the really beautiful/fun spots we didn't get pics of sorry! FYI there is snow in them hills hahahaha

Looks like fun! You don't carry a spare tube on rides?

Wow! Nice. I am so jealous.

I rode TSALI last year for the first time and was hooked on MTB. All I have to do is close my eyes and remember the days I was there and when I open them, I have to work to get the grin off my face

Those climbs are really hard (I can't imagine the air at 10,500), but just like a bad relationship, over time I am able to replace the pain, with the memory of, and the incredible feeling of the downhills and drops.

Thanks for the pics

Jay
