I finally made it to Bootleg Canyon, a $2mil. MTB playground. What a rush!
I noticed that all the riders had back packs all the time. You never get more than ten miles from the campground. What do you carry in a backpack that you can't put in a seat bag and pockets in my baggy shorts?
If you ever get through Boulder City, NV. Bring your bike, tent and sleeping bag. The parking area was like a college Football Game tailgater. BBQs grillin, ice chests open, repairs going on. It was part of why MTBers are my crowd.
There 9 different MTB trails, 11 downhill tracks rated from Woosy to Expert Only. There also three cable slide, jumps, teeter totters and shuttle service to the top, for the real woosy pretenders.
