We caught a nice 5-hour window without rain in Fruita today. Everyone had a great time. We look forward to more fun in Fruita and Moab over the next few days. Pictures today are from the Kokopelli trails. BTW, not only does Fruita have great riding but the food and beer at Hot Tomato Cafe also rock!

Photos from 18 Road

We made it out to the 18 Road playground today. Despite the ice cold temps and freezing wind, we all had perma grin. We rode until our legs wore out.

Day 3 - Lion's Loop, Troy Built, Mack Ridge

What a difference a day makes. The sun was out and temps were 30 degrees warmer (normal average temp). It felt good to sweat for a change. We didn't really see anyone today (must be Monday).

CC - The Spot is working out perfectly. I came off a Classic Blur and I'm finding the Spot climbs better and descending is like wearing a Superman suit. This bike is so much more stable than my Blur ever was.

Waterboy - Highlights: On vacation and riding 8-9 days in a row. Having the new Spot to take on vacation and the bike exceeding expectations. Cooperative weather that kept us dry even though the forecast the last two days was doom and gloom. Riding trails that have beautiful scenery and amazing flow. Post ride...Hot Tomato Cafe and New Belgium Sunshine beer.
Lowlights: Andi's Spot not ready for this roadtrip. Spreading Stinky dog's ashes and making me miss the heck out of her. Legs giving out before the heart.

aword4you - Saw the Noble pictures, looked like a great time. We met up with Todd, Angie, Tony and Craig on the second half of their Moab/Fruita vacation. They left this morning heading home. We've been seeing so many 29ers out here and keep thinking about you guys.

Excellent! Your trip looks fantastic. I'm really jealous. Last time we were there we didn't do 18 road, but for sure next time. My body's not really cooperating with me at the moment for all dayers so it kills me to see all the fun (I'm not having). Thanks for posting the pics and sharing the passion.

As requested - A few more photos

Not only does Fruita have beautiful scenery and singletrack, but there is plenty of climbing and chunk factor if that's your thing (HucklerMark, DirtyD and Waterboy).

PS Julee, Sorry to hear you're just feeling ok. Hope the photos help.
