Took a buddy out for his first ride in six months yesterday in an attempt to get him in shape for an upcoming road trip. He's been living at high altitude, 9000ft, and playing hockey once in a while so it went much better than expected. The trails we rode were a steep up and down affair, with tight switchbacks all over.

We didn't take it easy on him, that just wouldn't be right.

Now we've only got one person to worry about. :)

What a difference a day makes, huh?

Today sure turned dished out a reminder that mother nature is still a crackhead.

You should check out some of the stuff south over by St. Johns. There are some other trails back there similiar but not on the maps. We'll probabaly be up there again this weekend, but not totally sure.

Great pics as usual, Andy! Seems like we rode more hills last weekend, but my legs seemed more sore after this ride.

As much as we tried to put the hurt on him, Jim was right there the whole way. I was quite impressed.

All I can say is, bring some bungee cords, or a book to read while waiting! ;-)

Rehab....

is for Quitters.... :) When I was young, dumb and full of.....I used to wear a t-shirt that said, "Rehab is for Quitters".....I would always get funny looks from people at the gym trying to figure out what it meant.....Rehab IS for people that quit drugs, but if you are in rehab for an injury, does that make you a quitter??.......

Nice looking trails. Looks a lot like the stuff around here..... in JULY! My 9000 ft trails are still buried in 3 ft of snow! So where do you find snow free trails at that elevation?

These trails are in the 6,000 to 7,000-foot range. Plenty dry, at least before yesterday's rain. But they'll be dry again in a day or two.

D'Oh. Misread. That would explain why the foliage and trees resemble my local then. I'm also at 6500'.
