Away too long

June 10, 2012

OK. Now that you all know San Tan is Dynamite… we can move on. Apologies for the post drought. Work, family, sleep, and too many road rides have put a damper on my relationship with the mountain. Now that 12 of my last 15 rides have been on the road…I know there is something is […]

San Tan is Dynamite

April 15, 2012

The new trail out at San Tan park is Dynamite. The Goldmine TH off Wagon Wheel and Skyline has been worthless to mountain bikers for years. The only way into the park was a horrendous Hike-a-bike I called the rite of passage. I’d tried to ride it plenty of times, but it was a wicked […]

March 25, 2012

I heard about the new tech loop on Little Pan from Dale on the mtbr forum. Whenever I hear about a new trail, I fixate on it until I can find a time to ride it… and Tuesday afternoon I made the hour long pilgrimage out to the Table Mesa traihead to explore new to […]

Sunset n Snow

March 25, 2012

The views from Hawes were fantastic on Monday evening. After all the valley rains on Sunday, the mountains were white with snow. I think I spent more time taking pictures than actually riding… Random guy riding. If I’m taking pics and someone rides by, I snap a shot. Three of my favorite things…Barq’s, Burgers, and […]

Tommy Boy

March 15, 2012

Wednesday afternoon, where to ride…PMP? SoMo? Gold Canyon? It was Tom’s Thumb that beckoned me from miles away. Did I really want to climb, and climb, and then climb some more? Yes.

A Few Good Rides

February 28, 2012

The past few weeks I’ve got out to Gold Canyon and Pass Mountain. My goal on Gold Canyon was to re-explore the Fenceline trail and then give the strava segments my best effort. It made for a real fun ride. The Fenceline trail. I used to ride this years ago when it was even less […]

Cirque de SoMo

February 7, 2012

I needed a long ride. My last ditch effort to prepare for the AES Tor de 50 this Saturday. Good thing I took the bike out for a beatdown. I blew a tire at four miles in and broke a spoke at 6 miles in. A slime tube took care of the tire, I’d just […]

February 1, 2012

All you have to do is follow the white dots and you can clean every tech move on the tech loop. I rode on Saturday with my brother in law and he said: “This is the funnest trail I have ever ridden.” And he’s ridden quite a bit of trail with me here in AZ. […]
