Loose, steep, unshaded and filled with hikers walking packs of dogs. Bring your legs and a positive attitude. Better ways...

Good place to take kids/newbies. Not bad, but not very interesting and short. Some great trail running in State Park...

I'd give this 4.5 stars. Beautiful ride, long, 2200 ft sustained climb that's all very doable if you have the...

added a review of Cement Creek Trail / #608
 

Fun singletrack - best as a short after dinner ride if you're camped off Cement Creek Rd.
In CB soon, and just reading this may have swayed me from the original plan. Have never done Reno Flag...

Western Michigan flowy stick of butter. Well-built, superbly maintained, really fun.

If you're like me, you like "primitive" car camping on a bike trip and don't want to pay. Plus, you...

replied to The Beer Thread
 
Oskar Blues, maker of Dales Pale Ale opened a brewery in Brevard, NC I'm told.
Another "B" ride to Fruita's 18 Rd. and Kokopelli Trails is the Western Rim. Go here if there's big crowds...
Ooooooh, National Trail. The one glorious ride I had there 20 years ago on a fully rigid bike (no suspension...

Tough slickrock billygoating sprinkled with bits of mellower desert cruising, much exposure akin to the lower section of Porcupine Rim,...

added a review of Little Creek Mountain
 

For much of this ride, I felt like Frodo navigating through Mordor. Slickrock as far as the eye can see,...

If I start road biking, am I still allowed to drink beer and eat ice cream?
First off, great work. Per skibum's post, I too notice that extended periods on the bike with no running can leave...

replied to Moab vs Fruita?
 
Both are great. Fruita has more singletrack and in general, a more varied trail surface. 18 Road is truly unique...

This is good way to bypass much of the section of CO Trail/doubletrack as you enter off of Route 126....
