    just a few shots of yesterdays ride

    Here are a few trail shots i took yesterday while riding elfin forest in escondido, ca. this trail is technical and involves miles of steep, rocky, rutted climbs. once you get to the rim you decend into and out of canyons, valleys and ridges, its almost always a technically challenging. the trail consists of a lollipop loop of single track, double track and fire roads.

    when you get to the trailhead you are welcomed by a gentle flowing creek

    you can just feel the crisp water trickling across the rocks

    then you reach an ominous sign

    the battle begins you against your mind

    around every switchback it gets worse and worse by now your legs are exploding

    getting close but your not there yet, some nice run off erosion prevention makes for some technical switchback climbing

    your finally there now comes the fun part that comes from a very long climb DOWNHILL FUN!!!!!!! no wait not so fast

    yeah right its friday at 10am i'm the only one on the trail. finally i'm on top of the world looking down at lake hodges, one of san diegos premier bass fishing lakes

    whats a posting without a bike picture THE BLUR

    and finally the look of a satisfied mountain biker

    i washed out 1 time on this run while i was bombing a down hill switchback section but overall it was a fun day. this is one of those trails i really think a FS rig makes a HUGE difference

    absolutly right.. you get to decend the same sections you climbed to get back to your car. very steep, very rocky, very switchy, very fast, VERY FUN of course you have to keep it less than 15mph
