We’ve been riding a lot lately – Steve counted that in the last three days, he’s ridden almost 60 miles. On average we get to ride about four days a week, and on the days when we’re not riding we’re usually hiking or riding. We’ve discovered trails in some of the hottest (literally) places these days, like Santa Fe (Dale Ball trails), Gallup (Zuni Forest trails), Sedona (Highline, Made in the Shade, Slim Shady), Flagstaff (Schultz Creek and surrounding trails, especially Upper Moto!) and Telluride (Bear Creek Falls, Prospect). The latter two rides found us riding in sheets of rain and thunder, but let’s just call it an experiment in hydrology surveying.
All of those rides are highly recommended: lots of sustainable singletrack, beautiful views and the requisite good company that I would wish upon all of you. Here are some pictures from our ride in Telluride today. Enjoy! (I posted the set of 23 pics from our ride on my flickr page.)
