We've been doing Tuesday evenings, usually 5PM starts. Funny enough we did the Chimney/Apex loop last week.

Cool, I'll try to make it one of these weeks. This Tuesday is a no-go for me.

saw the same white 60 on my way home one day, it was a sweet rig.

sounds like you are more of a northsider.

Devils backbone is good. This weekend traffic was light. Of course Betasso. If you like a hard climb do the link trail up to betasso, it has been redone since last year and is a bit more flowy. Still has the baby head rock section close to the bottom though.

I have been stuck on Marshal Mesa/Dowdy Draw mainly because it is convenient. I gotta get on some more trails too. dang.

Walker Ranch is one of my favorites. Ride it clockwise.

This summer you have to get up to Buffalo Creek. I'll let you guys know when I'm going.

forgot to mention that betasso also has a relatively new loop. "Benjamin loop" adds a little bit more fun up there.

Buff Creek is a blast.

Is this the Spot Marco? We should all talk because I've been thinking of selling my Blur LT and going to a hardtail 29'er. Although I'd probably do gears, I'm but a mortal unlike you. :-)

Just as I was going to go full suspension, everyone seems to be going back to hardtail and (gasp) rigid forks in some cases
