    This week was Ellie Lane. While Iron is one of our highest traffic hiker trails, Ellie is one of the lowest. A bit strange since they are right next to each other. But Iron is a summit and Ellie *just* goes over a couple saddles.

    We used to do them together as one ride, but Ellie has gotten ugly. Neither is a trail you want to ride tired, so we left Ellie for a separate ride.


    It's the same climb up for either ride. This week, with snakes

    Lots of dirt has been washed away in the last two winters' storms so moves that were tough have now become intimidating and others have become unrideable without solid trials skills. Scouting ahead is mandatory

    And there is no warmup. We get straight into two features with tough entries and consecutive drops while turning. And wheel catchers if you get off line

    The land manager loves to use wood beams for erosion control which just get undercut, forming big drops underneath. This one still rideable

    This turn required a nose pick at the apex to hop the rear wheel around

    More ugliness. There used to be only a few sections that stood out as really challenging. Now most of the trail was sketchy

    A stout hike a bike over the second saddle followed, after which the trail got nicer. Still chunky and challenging but almost continuously rideable since it has seen some maintenance

    Fun ride and by far the most challenging I've done in a long time. 6 miles in 4 hrs.

    Wish I lived closer so I could work on it but this one is a haul to get to

    Posted this in the dig stoke thread, but should put it here too. Just finished building a new trail the other day and have gotten in a few laps on it now. Pretty fun. It's short but you get no breaks between features.




    Bonus footage - I ran the go pro down another trail I hadn't been on in a while. This one sucked for a long time but has seen a bunch of recent work and now it's pretty fun.

    Cool little spin near Newport, Oregon. Used Strava to find some trails above the city water facility. Then along the waterfront and along the jetty.

    Took the 8 year old through Fruita on our spring break road trip. Staying at Chez Particle, which is rad and I highly recommend it. Having a house to use in Fruita is pretty damned nice.

    She got her first mountain bike late last summer but didn't do too many single tracks...mainly learned basics, how to shift, etc. while riding dirt roads.

    We started her day with two laps on Kessel Run on 18 Road which was perfect. She loved it, had a few rodeos but hung on. The rain rolled in so we went home, then headed out to the Kokapeli area late in the afternoon, complete with cool temps but sunshine.

    We did Rustler's loop and she crushed--pedalled through all the rock stuff, did a really good job of picking her lines on the go and never crashed. It was super fun seeing her confidence and skills grow as the day went on, crescendoing when she was singing to herself on Rustler's while cruising through the micro technical stuff and happily rolling off the little ledges. She was really proud of herself which makes me really happy.

    The mission was to get her stoked on MTB and it was a very strong success.

    Back to 18 Rd tomorrow for chutes and ladders...

    Awesome. Nice work. I'm finally getting my oldest son into mtb.
    Of course he's 40 so slightly different.

    This thread doesn't work very well without pictures.
    But went down South to get out of the rain/snow.
    Didn't see another rider on the trails all weekend.
    Hit Little Creek in Hurricane Friday. Great riding, liked it better then Gooseberry. Same techy riding but with some actual dirt mixed on. Killer views too.

    Went to Caliente on Saturday. Checked out Barnes Canyon. Thought the riding was pretty meh overall and bailed back to Cedar City.

    Rode 3 Peaks on Sunday and had a great time. Lots of variety and fun,

    So many microclimates around here. We've been wet and his area drains so well.

    I think the tree needs to get something with slightly more modern geo

    Wife and daughter on 18 Road today. The 8 year old daughter crushed PBR a few times, then E.4. A great day for sure.

    Did some exploring last weekend in a new zone and found some really nice granite slabs and tech. And lots of steep pushing up moto trails to get there.
