Today's biking fun... a 4WD trail

Buddy and I went out today for a ride, decided to ride a trail that we 4-wheel. Had a great time! China Wall in considered a 4WD trail and we normally treat it has such but we wanted to bike it!

OK, so why is tha guy on a big rock when the trail clearly goes around? And why carry a Camelback when you can suck on snow at any time?

Just thoughts that shoot into my head. But thanks for posting ride pics. Posts with actual riders are the best! Always so much better than a bike standing next to a mailbox!

You guys were 4-wheelin' the trail. It just took 2 vehicles to add up to 4-wheels.

Nice pix. Looks like it was a fun time.
