| ||NICE CHILLY RIDE WITH SINGLESPEEDRIDER. THOUGHT ABOUT GOING UP TO THE PEAK BUT COLD TEMPS AND LOTS OF SNOW ON THE ROAD AT 4 CORNERS AND ABOVE CHANGED OUR MINDS. VERY ICY IN LOTS OF PLACES BELOW 4 CORNERS. |
| ||Geared hardtail today. 57 min. from car to the gate at 4 corners. Great temps out there for January. Who wants to live where it snows. Motorway is rough but fun, keep you on your toes. Nice talking with Tim at the top of Motorway. |
| ||Fun ride with Singlespeedrider.
Maple Springs is in great shape considering the amount of water that was flowing all week and is still. No muddy sections on Maple. The streams and debris on Maple made the pavement section a fun challenge. There were a couple of downed trees that forced a dismount but we made a bypass around most of them.
The Main Divide from 4 Corners to Motorway is in great shape with only a couple of mud hole to watch for.
Motorway took a beating. There are quite a few deep ruts that will have to be fixed. There's a mud slide near the bottom and just past that there's a stream that took out the entire trail. |
| ||Started by 7:00 finished by 9:00. Quick and painless. Saw a couple of guys getting ready to head out of the parking lot as we finished, they're going to be roasting. Other Comments|
| ||29 degrees at the start. Brrrrr. Warmed up about half way up Maple. Still quite a bit of snow at Four Corners and patches on the road all the way to Motorway. Ridable the whole way and fun with just a little mud mixed in to get you dirty. |
| ||GOT OUT EARLY AND BY 10:00 am THE TEMPS WERE PUSHING 100 DEG. FUN RIDE WITH THE ADD ON SECTION UP THE SANTIAGO PEAK. ENDED UP AT ALMOST 26 MILES AND 5700 FT OF CLIMB. CHECK OUT THE ADD ON PERSONAL ROUTE FOR EXTRA CREDIT. |
