On my way back from a race I decided to detour though Curt Gowdy State Park and check this place out. Even though I got a bit lost I really enjoyed the...
Snodgrass is one of the great trails in Crested Butte and I got out for a quick ride on it earlier this summer. The trail is also a great example of how...

replied to Bike covers for rear hitch mount racks
 
All of the racks I've had have stated that using a bike cover voids the warranty and I think they would add a huge amount of drag and therefore force on the...
In 1888 the "finest and highest quality" granite was extracted from Aberdeen Quarry and used to build the Colorado state capitol building. In June of 2017 I brave the trail, going barefoot...
Start with the trails at Green Mountain and then move on to Apex, Mt. Falcon, White Ranch, Centennial Cone, all good areas. MTB Project and Trail Forks have good maps.  Big Ring...
Finally got an opportunity to put tires to dirt on Buffalo Creek's newest trail. This is a great addition to the existing trail network out there and is really fun to ride...
 
A great ride right out of Crested Butte hugging both sides of the Slate River valley by taking the Lupine Trail to Lando Calrissian ( aka Gunsight Trail ) to Upper Lower. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZAj-rHq0WM MTB...

Took a road trip to Carson City, NV to race in the Capitol 50 of the Carson City Off-Road.  As usual, Epic Rides put on a great show and a solid race....

Thanks, I feel the same way. I used a GoPro Hero4 Black.

I made a video about the best father's day ride I can think of. I did it a little early due to scheduling, but really had fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsgbYCk4zOc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsgbYCk4zOc
 
If I think it will make an interesting video and won't interfere with the ride or the ride is longer than the battery life then I'm wearing it.
Coming back from the Rainbow Trail my buddy and I caught the Little Rainbow and Lost trails back to the car.  These are part of the Salida Trails system that is to...
A buddy of mine and I decided something needed to be done about all the trail closures and headed South West to Salida Colorado where the kind folks at Absolute Bikes directed...
I happened to get out one Sunday night, in between two thunderstorms which had scared everyone else off the trails.  The trail was perfect, not muddy, just tacky. So much fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsW2WZ_YVtI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsW2WZ_YVtI

I just started riding with one on trails I know are going to be busy. Since I wasn't sure about it when I bought it I made a review. https://youtu.be/e_coEyE_2NA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_coEyE_2NA
Cool, thanks for the advice Aaron!
Tried out a new trail close to home with a good friend of mine. Being on the front range it was pretty busy but we had a bunch of fun and even...
Finished up my #NewRideDay at Phil's World with Ribcage, some of the most fun natural dirt jumps I've ever ridden.  Bonus points for finding the 2 times I nearly go down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtmO4DvYeL8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtmO4DvYeL8
Thanks @Brian87, I loved it and can't wait for a reason to get back, going to become a regular stop on my way to AZ.
A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Cortez, CO and rode Phil's World.  Here's an edit of the West / North West side of...

This looks like a DJI Phantom 3 or 4, @ 0:50-0:51 you can see it hit the bike and shortly after the battery and some parts come flying out to the right....

@aaronchamberlain I agree, it is dangerous and I feel bad for the rider. The pilot should have been more careful. My point is that this one incident shouldn't dictate policy.
Anyone else headed to Grand Junction for the Off-Road? I'm getting excited to ride this again.
I was with you on the lycra shorts until I started ripping it on falls, now I've got some nice light weight baggies.
I have used a Giro Atmos for all my rides ( road, cyclocross, and mountain ) for years and have liked it but I just ( like 2 days ago ) picked...

On my way down south I stopped by Lake Pueblo State Park to break up the driving.  The terrain is pretty unique, nothing like what I've ridden other places in Colorado. Give...
The final part of this is now up, this includes the new section of singletrack to finish the Grand Junction Off-Road, both the 30 and 40 Grand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_AvbvmvZLg
This was my first time checking out the trails around the Lunch Loops and was blown away, kinda sad I had only hit Troy and 18 Rd before that. If you haven't...
The second part of this is up now, lots more singletrack and downhill for your enjoyment! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtxeSN-Yfd4
On my annual spring trip to the west slope of Colorado I decided to preview the new Grand Junction Off-Road 40 Grand course so that I'm not racing blind in just a...
