Here’s a look at what’s been going on with Bike Carson readers. We have some Fall riding shots as well as some Spring photos from the southern hemisphere.
First we have a photo from Scott Meikrantz, a shot of his single speed Vasssago at the Kings Canyon overlook as the sun is going down.
A couple weeks ago, some of our lunchtime crew went for an extended weekend ride up in Ash Canyon. It’s always fun when you have extra time to play around and take some good photos. Here’s a photo of Jesse Richardson crossing the log on the Evidence Trail.
Next we have some UNR Cycling racing action from Kary Grabow.
The Sierras take on a whole new look in the Fall. Here’s an awesome foggy scene along Marlette Lake from Scott Meikrantz.
Here’s another one from our weekend Ash Canyon trip, Sandie Ruybalid coming down the Seven Steps trail.
We had some great riding this last week here in Carson City. Hours of rain last weekend turned the summer sand into hardpack with amazing traction! And when you combine great conditions with Fall colors and scenery, it just doesn’t get much better. Here’s Robin Sharp (and Sandie off in the distance) heading over to the Seven Steps Trail.
If you’ve been up in the canyon, you may have noticed what great shape the trails are in after the rain. This is not by accident! While most of us were huddled in our warm homes last weekend, Jeff Potter and a couple guys were up on the trails during the torrential rain, watching the water flow down the trails. Seeing the rain in action allowed them to see where water was flowing and pooling, and they constructed more drains to divert the eroding water off the trail. So while the main roads are soggy and rutted out, the singletrack has never been better. Thanks guys!

Here we have more racing action from Kary Grabow, the Division 1 start at the Collegiate Mountain Bike Championships up in Truckee, CA.

And finally a photo from the top of McClellan Peak. I don’t know anyone who climbs this mountain more than Scott Meikrantz.
