You have to love the South side of Dale Ball trails. It is where there is some scarier type of riding. Ledges, loose rock descent,steep climbs and steep descents. Todd and I met at St. Johns and peddled up to wilderness gate and went in to Dorothy Stewart trail and went to Dale Ball South trails from there. I must say the climb up from Dorothy Stewart trail to Picacho is almost worst then taking Atalaya to Dale Ball. Todd wasn't feeling the Dale Ball South on this day but still had a sweet ride. We were both gearing up for big rides up in Taos that we both did this past weekend. I did the big ol Double Boundary Ride put on by Matt and Todd did the Enchanted Circle Century the same day. We both had a blast. A writeup from my Double Boundary ride will be soon.
Here are a few pictures from the ride I went on with Todd
Dale Ball ROCKS
Todd just riding along
I have to learn to stop smiling all the time
Todd cleaned his chain too much and it broke. It was a nice time for a break anyway
Everything is sooooo Green these days

I figured I would take a rest here. Todd agreed as well. Santa Fe has many spots made for resting
A hiker came up on us resting. Everyone in Santa Fe that hikes seems to use hiking poles
Todd coming out of DBS and I think he was ready for this ride to end.
I rode my geared cyclocross bike out on a ride on the trails the other day. It was my first geared ride on dirt since I have been here.
what is in your audio player? I have the new Thom Yorke album in mine. Courtesy of my bro IN San Fran. I am liking it.
I will leave you with another fine sunset from the front door. Come back and see us again real soon.
