Up BlackStar to Beeks and then South on the undulating Pain Divide Road for another 13 miles or so. A grueling 13 miles at that. At 4 Corners you're rewarded with an extremely fast downhill run down Maple Springs, through Silverado and back to the starting point. Lots of cars and dirtbikes along this route, so keep your head up and stay alert, especially on the narrow paved section at the end of Maple Springs. BE PREPARED. This is no place to break down without tools, tubes or water and food.

A little hike a bike in those nasty sections still a great day for this route best weather of the year.
Scouted the first half of the Traverse route today with cilantro13. Great day on the bike. We were rewarded for our efforts with perfect sunny blue skies on Main Divide. Ran into Boerseun and Fast Turtle at 4 Corners. I used to hate Main Divide but I'm appreciating these grueling sections more and more with every ride.
I don't wanna talk about it.
Rode this route backwards...sure seems easier that way because I've done it twice the other direction. Its still no cupcake though.
Very cool all ride. The Main Divide is graded almost all the way across. Only a couple of sections still have ruts. Getting ready for the Traverse just about a month away.
Traverse recon. Trail in fairly good conditon with some loose sections at bottom of descents. Buddy went down but didnt get hurt. Definitely not for beginners. Bring good fitness, legs, and the right mindset as the climbs from the Motorway to 4 Corners can be relentless for the unprepared.
Was planning on going up to Santiago, but was too hot. Garmin died sometime after Motorway, so ride time is approx.
Rode with camera, tripod, and 3 lenses. To beeks place in 1:15:29 minutes. Brutal!

Solo loop o death today. Nice weather but the gnats suck. Blew the nacho out. :-)
Big Fat DNF for the Traverse. 4:30ish to 4C's so I got a free downhill tour of Maple Springs.... again.
