I love spring.

Yeah, yeah, a few of these are re-gurgitated from the last month or so. Some aren't. Deal with it either way.
Spring finally rolled in around these parts, and riding started off with a downy soft freshness. Meeting some new folks to ride with on some new to me trails is never a bad thing, either.


Dropping in (I missed him on the off) on Mother's Day. (Yes, the feature has a name. No, I don't know the circumstances of said name.)


Lost part# 3452456


Oddly enough, found at the bottom of this little ramp. I've actually found quite a bit of bike detritus down there. It's smooth and fast, with a little lip you can pop off on the bottom. Fairly short LZ though, and a quick left hander afterwards that seems to take folks by surprise. A bit too fast, and rather than taking the corner, you might find yourself eating bark.


Greener-ish pastures.


A short little blip of a connector trail, that has several fun poppers in one direction, and a fun drop going the other way. With a loop that lets you hit it repeatedly to session said drop.


Some of the most excellent helmet hair ever.


To be fair, he did earn it. Unfortunately this was the best shot I managed.


This one isn't as bright, but a bit early on the timing. That rock looks smallish, but it throws you quite nicely down trail.


Some of Pukemaster's fine trail building work. This is nearing the end of a nice long spine line, finishing with a short log ride after the little droplet here.


Tweaking, ever tweaking.

You got some cool trails in your neck of the woods.

Gratuitous timer shot.


The lucky shirt.


GTS #2.


Settling into the new place has been nice. The ability to commute by bike to work is once again mine. A place to tweak the bikes that isn't the kitchen floor is most excellent.


It took a while, but as with many things, the waiting is the hardest part.


More Mother's Day action. Pukemaster this time.


Hot manpri action.


Bikezilla hits up a steepy.


6thElement on a fun little bit in the same area.


Best damn f#$%ing post ride munchies.

Not much of this sort of thing in Colorado.

29er wheels rolling over. I swear, he didn't even loft the front end to get up on the thing.


That's how we roll.

Hell, and some of the best stuff I don't even good pics of yet! I'm really, really loving the overal techy nature of most trails around here. My hit list for this summer is pretty large. Places I've either not been yet, been only once, or for sure need some local guidance on to find the best stuff.
