On Sunday Jeff Potter and I got together to brainstorm some ideas for May’s Bike Month. We decided to have a rolling meeting, and go see what the trails were like while we were talking. It turned out the trails were pretty good!
First we climbed Combs Canyon.
Then we dropped down to the V&T Trail.
Once back to Vicee Canyon, we climbed the Jackrabbit Trail, Postal Route, and took the Deer Run into Ash Canyon.
We took Ash Canyon Road to the top of the Four Day Trail and began our descent back home.
The climbing had been slow going in the accumulating snow, but the descent was fast! My speed downhill was not limited by traction, but by diminished braking power. My rim brakes were wet from the snow, so I was overshooting corners. I had to brake early in the turns to compensate.
We descended down the Four Day Trail, Baldy Green, Deer Run, 7 Steps, Vicee Canyon, and finished up with the Jackrabbit Trail. A mob of deer was waiting for us at the trail head. We told them Marcus was not among us, and they let us go.
Once back on the asphalt it was an easy ride back home to a warm fire and some cold brews. It was a great day of riding, and we even came up with good ideas for Bike Month. Stay tuned for the kick off meeting later this week.
