Time for another round of Wednesday fun in Alpine. The weather was starting to roll in but most of the time sky was full of white puffy clouds with a pretty blue backdrop.
I had not been here since the big batch of rain we had a while back and it was pretty astonished to see all the little changes momma-nature had done to the place. Of course the the trail elves has been out making “shoes” so to say.
Historically I have had a bad habit of riding this place in the middle of the summer and stewing my brain in the process. I have ridden this place quite a bit over these cooler months and it was quite nice to do the climb in reasonable conditions. Maybe I am not as retarded as I thought (ask me again in August!) Once at the top it was time to play in some chunk. Steve up near the top.
Me getting started.
This bump-a-bump line gave me some troubles today. It took me three tries and a little skin exfoliation to get it done today.
More playing on the rocks.
The Big Black Fatty coming in for a landing.
The trails elves had tweaked this kicker since my last time here and the thing really pops up now. I carrried nearly all the way over the rock tranny to a rather harsh landing. Yeah for forgiving suspension.
The descent down the main trail was pretty awesome as the dirt has just right moisture in it be both velcro-ish and stupidly fast. The dirt was way too good to stop and take pics. Another great day on a bike.
