I am moving back to Grand Junction area this April. I am going to take I40 and have the truck all rigged to camp and ride. Any suggestions on places to stop and ride? Toward NM I will cut up and hit Phil's world and try to get to Fruita in time for Fat Tire.
I don't know how far you want to stray from I40, but in AR there is a great trail. The Womble near Mt Ida is an IMBA epic from the past. Great singletrack with some ups, some downs, some views and is tacky, smooth, and fast.
If riding Phils World nearby is Sand Canyon, about 14 southwest of Cortez. 11 mile trail thru an Anasazi village with slickrock and trails built by mountain bikers for MTB! Local MTB map has 34 rides, Kokopelli Bike Shop.
Always wanted to tackle Mt Taylor by Grants, NM but it's a very big climb. Only in summer as it's 11,305'. Also choices around Albuquerque but haven't ridden there much. Faulty Trail was a tech struggle, Foothills Trail had the most goatheads of any trail, avoid.
