Glory be to Bikes and Trails

   Went up to the fire tower a couple weeks ago with Anthony and his nice new camera and new full suspension SingleSpeed he built up from a older Santa Cruz Superlight. Very cool idea. We parked at the hiking store at the Baptist Center and climbed up to the ghost town and beyond. Man it gets steep after ghost town. It is all worth it though. Anthony and I exchanged the camera so the shots are by both of us. It was a great day with no mechanicals and good energy flowing through the canyon.

AHHH isn't that cute

Anthony in his Man-Pri's

With Glorieta comes some climbing

With the climbing comes resting

Anthony wondering. Can it get any better?

Starting the fun descent

It is loose and steep at the top

Then it gets really fast

Tim getting serious :)

Anthony letting it all go

A nice little break before the last section of FUN

A nice picture by Anthony

Right after the last photo I went over the bars Anthony caught the after math

And back down to the Baptist Center

What a Day that was. Anthony's camera was very nice. I love that descent.
    We watched a good movie the other night called We Jam Econo the story of the minutemen. It was great. Made me LOVE D. Boone that much more.
    What is in your audio player? I have Ben Harper- Fight for your Mind in mine for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope everyone has a nice day.
Get out and RIDE!
Ale's what cures you.

Rio en MOOdio

   We came across this cow all alone enjoying the day.

    Decided I needed to go back and do the Pacheco Canyon Borrego Rancho Viejo Rio en Medio loop because it is REALLY fun. Anthony was saying he wanted to get back in the more remote areas so this was a perfect choice. So I met Anthony at Tesuque Village Market and proceeded to go up to 102. Had a great ride accept that we ended up descending down Nambe trail instead of turning onto Rio en Medio like we should of. The trail became unridable after a while but was beautiful. I would like to get back on it one day soon. Photos by Anthony
Contemplating my future

The Pause that Refreshes


There is a good bit of climbing on this ride

I think this was the Kona's last ride before Anthony cannibalized it to create his new Santa Cruz Superlight squishy SS.

The trail gets hard to see on this part of the ride
Pretty Meadow though

Stream Crossings are fun

There is Tim hiking as usual

    I think this was also the last ride for Anthony's old camera. He got a nice new one with image stabilization and 7.1 MB . WOW that is big files.
    What is in your audio player? I have Burning Spear- Chant Down Babylon: The Island Anthology in mine. Good ol Roots.
    If you are ever in Ocean City, MD. Make sure you go to Piezanos for a slice and a Yuengling after you paddle out.
    My mom and pop went there a bit ago and took a pic cause they know how much I miss it.
