Nice pics Rich. As much as I enjoy the action shots that show the moment, that last picture makes me imagine (and remember) great stories about riding.

I'll get there next weekend, hope it's as beautiful still. Was just watching news and seeing a snow storm in Denver and was wondering how Fruita was doing.

I was thinking the guys in the last pic might be my age but I've probably got less hair, and what there is of that is kinda white these days so who knows...but that sure doesn't keep me from passing up plenty of younger guys...Jack.

OK, I'm jealous.
Wish I could head out to the FFTF... Everyone just take lots of pics for us poor saps who have to hang back at home.

Lidarman pics are becoming like photo-john pics.

Not Fair! You pros are making us look bad.

Indeed. Lindarman you pictures (As I said in your last thread) just seem to get better and better as you post....

So keep posting.

Cheers
Trevor!
(I hate work because of my lack of trail time! These pictures increase that hate!)

better

Joes Ridge is one of the best single track trails I have ever ridden.
When was that, 5-10 years ago? It was much better before getting widened and riddled with skid bumps at the bottom of the steeps. There was a day when you could easily hold 30+ going down those on a rigid bike before the trendoids who don't know what a front brake is for ruined parts of Joes Ridge.

Then again, "best" is a state of mind and I have yet to ride the "best". Some day when I'm old and gray, pissing a diaper in a rest home, I'll look back and say which was the "best" trail I have ridden.

I suppose one could have a "best" based on all the rides in the past. He didn't make a blanket statement saying it was the best in world--just the best he has ridden.

I have to say, The Singletrack is pretty narrow given all the people who ride it.

I just wanted to piss in someone else's Depends for a change. Besides, if Joes is the best he has ridden, he definitely needs to get out more, especially given the current condition of Joes.

Being in Fruita at the beginning makes one a little snobbish as to determining what is wide and what is not. When a tight turn in a trail has two 4" wide tracks made by the front and rear tires respectively from the same set of skilled riders who are the only ones using that particular trail, it's "narrow". The obnoxious skid bumps started appearing in the Bookcliffs about four years ago. There is no excuse for those, other than poor bicycle handling.
