Fridays Pre-work ride

Kevin and I went to Hidden Mesa. Conditions are great right now. Starting from the Hidden Mesa trail head to the top there wer 2 muddy spots, but they are small. 1 of them is right by a picnic area so you can go around without having to widen the trail. Once up top we did the Mesa loop, while there were a few wet sections it was just tacky, not muddy. This was a great day to get my SS back into it. I had a great time!

Gotta love the warnings


On to the trail

That's a cool ride in the dirt, snow, and rocks! I know I might get 7 miles in a an hour on my mtb rides. That's good with me as long s I don't fall and break my nose!

Looks like a nice ride, we have nothing but muddy trails around here and any place where would have terrain like that is covered in snow. I'm thinking I will take my road and mountain bikes when we go to Colorado this year.
