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.

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.

Robin on the Seven Steps Trail by Jeff Moser

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!

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

  1. Nice pics!

    A big thanks to the two guys who braved the poor weather and helped to divert water from the trail: Toby and Scott.
