    Missed G3, but.....

    NM is where it's at. A few shots from Rio En Medio. If you ever find yourself in Santa Fe, this is a must ride, especially in the fall. Its got a little bit of everything. From flowy ST to super knar vertical rock faces, it is sure to satisfy your appetite. Oh yeah, and the scenery ain't to bad either...if your into that sort of thing Cheers from NM and to those who rocked
    G3. See ya next year

    Starts with a 8 mile climb up Pacheco Canyon FR



    And another 3 miles of pavement to Santa Fe ski basin...with any luck there will be a Turner RFX willing to haul you up.



    Upper and lower sections have way too much flow to stop for pictures, but the middle will seperate the mice from men!

    Rooty section



    Into a 4' rock drop



    Then rock walls...sheer vertical in places.











    Peace!

    I decided to venture out to White Ranch and battle the legendary front range crowds on Sunday am. This place is so played, I can't believe all the people here at 9:30am on a beautiful fall morning.




    About 20 minutes in, I found a good place to stop and stretch before taking on the brutality section of Belcher Hill.


    I had this on my mind going into the descent.

    I put a good dent right near this weld on it's second ride ever. This summer, I've managed to add two more right in the same zone. I don't trash chainrings from smacking big, static stuff, I think its just well placed, well sized ricochets off the front tire. Riding from Ned to Boulder tomorrow, hopefully it'll hold up for that one.
    edit" Oh yeah. 2008 XT cranks/rings are the shizzle fo dizzle. Best f.der shifting I've ever experienced.

    A nice section of trail. Maverick rocks. I sing "Ride into the Danger Zone" while swooping through the tall golden grass.


    One of my favorite views ever.

    Its tricky because it presents itself just as you have to negotiate a tight switchback with a diabolically placed water bar. Serious thoughts about how much brake on each wheel, while trying to catch a peep....then when its done all I really want to do is ride through this section as fast as possible. Yesterday I stopped and took a picture...for you, for teh internetz.

    After this I was running late for work, so no more pics, but I will end with a proclamation of my love for White Ranch: Maverick, Longhhorn and Shorthorn...soooo good.

    Some good WR stoke there.

    Nice to see Rio en Medio making an appearance on TGR. Next time ride the trail up - Winsor trail to Rio en Medio is the ticket.

    yeah, you have to get some speed and pedal like hell to get some distance... he was killing it though.... the fact that you were looking into a spotlight didn't really help either.


    nice work on the paint skills...

    Wow amazing response to this thread. I am damn impressed. Some insane photo stoke in here...CO, UT, NM, EC...sick.

    My weekend just ended on Wed. Here's a teaser...more to come later. This is my new favorite jump ever...barring maybe a couple at Whistler.

    If you're in the PNW and want to hit some singletrack, there is an intriguing ride I've got on the top of my list to hit out in the Olympics - Mt. Muller. Description on bbtc.org trail site. The camping nearby also sounds as impressive as the trail might be!

    Drop by for some beers if you're in Seattle. Enjoy the riding.
    Sorry to hear about the breakage Squirrel, I know how that goes. All DH'ers do.

    Sorry I missed you in Seattle - we had endless social appointments...my wife knows WAY too many people here! Got some incredible riding in though, stoked.

    Oh and Alaskans and Canadians are gnar-core with the snow riding.

    Heh, I started writing a reply about how cool it'd be if some nice Alaskans would take in a geologist living in Massachusetts, and then I remembered that they have six months of cold darkness (more or less). I'll stick to my original plan of just visiting.

    By the way...

    I have enjoyed this thread, so I thought I would bump it with some pics. They aren't too exciting, but are pics of my local riding that has been making me very happy lately. There's something about riding over a layer of wet aspen leaves that brings a huge smile to my face

    Creek Trail

    Yeah I've had that happen too. But it was from sliding off a hidden root and breaking my jaw.
