Last night I finished up and published the Poison Spider Mesa – Portal Video. I ended up including some walking footage in the video. Considering how dangerous some of those exposed sections are I felt the walking bits needed to be represented along with the riding bits. Every veteran of the Portal trail with whom I have talked has all mentioned walking the exposed parts and how frightening that trail can be. The riding only version of the video just seemed to be missing something and the walking bits was it.
So anywho, right click here to download the 9 minute and 35 second video that will set your hard drive back 130MB.
I’m starting to get the Utah – Colorado Road trip report put together. I’m going to roll it out as I get each of the days done vice waiting until I get all eight days completed. Here is the main page that wil link to each day of the trip. I hope to get a new day of the trip up every other day or so.
Utah -Colorado Roadtrip 2008
Well I’m back from wandering through Utah and Colorado. What an incredible trip. We rode each day of the trip including our travel days. Shoot, we rode twice a couple of days for a total of 10 rides in 8 days. I met some cool people, touched bases with old friends, rode great trails and managed to get that monkey off my back the Goat Camp Crash. It was truly the kind of stuff that you remember for the rest of your life. I’m swamped with pictures and random streams on thought that will take some time to get all together.
Here a few more teaser pictures for now:
Kevin on the Gunny Loop in Grand Junction (Rode from his front door)
Cruising on the Zion Curtain
Someplaces are really “Moore Fun”
World Class trails with World Class Brews!
Life is good! My buddy Bill and I have been running amuck through Utah. Yesterday we finished up our sixth ride in five days. We spent a day near St. George doing some mesa riding before heading over to Moab. We hit up a few of the marquee trails as well as some of the not-so marquee trails. Big Country – Awesome rides. Last night we pulled up chocks and rolled into Grand Junction, Colorado to hang with some friends for a couple of days and hit up a few trails here.
Here a few sample pictures from the trip so far.
