    Enjoy the ride everyone!

    Soul MAN! That looks just like it did in the 90's. We called it the Bear's Butt. Thanks for posting that trip in the Way Back Machine! Genuine adrenalin rush there.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Yeah, I can only imagine! I am too scared to try it as I am afraid of taking a bad line and severely pay for it.

    Noooooo, you mean you are lifting your bike over the barbed wire and walking around? Our old rigids with 1.85 tires handled it! Its kinda weird, I always rode it going out but walked around coming back it. So, I'm not as brave as I like to sound. The picture does NOT show how far down it is.

    Now there is an opening in the barbed wire about ten feet to the left in that picture so you do not have to run that section right there. You might see one or two sets of tracks trying it, but I haven't seen anyone actually do it.

    Here is a picture standing just inside the barbed wire opening, headed down which obviously sees much more action than the wicked alternative. I love this shot as you can see the trail climb back up the other side. If you view the original size, it becomes much more obvious.

    How far from home do you have to go to get to trails like this?

    That trail is 25 minutes away, and all the other trails are about five minutes away, but not nearly as technical. I am hoping next year I can start doing trail videos to show the local trails. Everything I have found is just a couple of minutes long and does nothing to showcase what is out here.

    Here is my first video - a lap around Anasazi Loop. Poor quality as I am still messing with all the settings, but the next one will be better. The camera is a Garmin VIRB, mounted to the handlebars. Happy New Year!
