The inital 7 miles of this ride is spent ascending the Maple Springs fire road to four corners (Note: Maple Springs is pavement up to 3.0 miles). From four corners the undulating Main Divide fire road carries you for 6 miles to the prize, Silverado's Motorway singletrack. The bottom of Motorway conveniently leaves you at the original start point for the route. Expect excellent views during the climb and a highspeed rocky descent down Motorway.

Started around 3:00 pm. Turned my lights on before 4 corners. Very cold up there: 40F. Had a flat on the rear but I did not fix it. I kept on putting air in it till the end, maybe 6 times. I haven't descended Motorway in several years. In the night the trail seems longer.
The hunters are out. 80th loop for me.
Was planning a longer ride but the bugs got the best of me and had to cut it short.
Lost the rear brake past 4C.
You can ride the whole way now.
