Had a good ride yesterday. Took about an hour to get to the top, which is a little long, but with only four stepoffs I'm feeling pretty good about it.

1-left hand switchback on the very lowest section of trail between 6th ave and the junction that goes back to the parking lot.

2-right hand rocky corner - the famous one above the first crossing of Lookout Mtn Road.

3-last left hand switchback, right by the flat overlook area

4-stupid wrong line just below the rocky outcropping at the top - shouldn't have needed to step off there.

I made all of the batch of switchbacks right by the house with the driveway, which I'm not sure I've ever done before so that must be getting easier (specifically the final left hand one). Other sections of the trail are getting progressively rockier as the years go by.

My downhill wasn't as good. I think I had 6 stepoffs.

Not bad for a 14 yr old hardtail.

Chimney Gulch? I've maybe made all 6 of the lower switchback once or twice. That's 6th one is usually loose, yeah, loose. Can't be that I'm gassed or anything.

Yep. I don't know if it's cheating that I took my front tire on the outside of the water bar, which seemed to make things easier.

Saw a pair of fat bikes coming up as I was heading down that section, looked interesting.

Would you want to bring your bike and ride up north? Maybe meet up with Marco around Boulder or possibly White Ranch?

I could probably get there faster from where I will be. Could do south boulder or white ranch

Betasso. Park in town, ride up 4 Mile, make some laps in the park, then back down the canyon into town.

I can't swing a ride today but I might be able to meet you some time later this week if you're going to do something on this side of the city. Maybe Deer Creek or Falcon?

Been on the road for work and I'm itching to get in the dirt. Plus, I just did the 40t upgrade and need to break it in.

I need to get in a spin but I don't think I can make it this far down today. :-/
