Riverside Blast

We all got out the other day for a fast and furious bosque ride. We were almost all on singlespeeds, but some people don't listen very well and then we make them cry (on the inside at least). It rained quite a bit the day before so I was worried that it might be too muddy, but that wasn't the case- it was good on the way out and perfect on the way back.

It doesn't look it, but some of these guys are actually quite fast
Thanks to Dr. Dave for the picture of these large juveniles. If you have never ridden the Corrales bosque, it really is a nice ride and can be quite the workout of you go fast (not advisable with weekend traffic on the trails though).

Its been awhile

I didn't post for awhile because there wasn't that much awesomeness in the bike world, or my riding world, and I wasn't sure anybody I knew was reading the blog much, but Ive had a few requests to keep blogging so I will- but not too, too much. I don't want to wear the handful of followers out.

We had a great ride out in Placitas on new years eve day and although my silly phone camera doesn't do it justice, I had to post some picks-

Yes, there were goggles involved

The haze in this picture is steam from my back
In  the very important NM trail news dept., there is an official re-route of part of Cajun Pine over at the top of Otero. It's just a small change but it is a very nice little piece of trail with a descent technical challenge in the middle. It also ties the trails in that area together in a much clearer and cleaner manner.

The beginning on the NW end
I was too lazy to pull my camera out for the technical section. Also, this post is now too late for anyone else to enjoy this re-route this season since there is actual real snow on the ground. There should have been snow on the ground already as this picture was taken on Dec. 3rd.

Tootles for now.
