Chiva Falls, Jan 22
Rode with Rudy, Mark, Smitty and Jon from the Sonoran Desert Mountain Bike Club. I found these guys at www.ClubMTB.com under Tucson,Arizona and joined their club before we left Ontario. Great bunch - excellent riders, especially climbing at 4000' - and they know where to get great post-ride burritos!
This trail was way steeper than the pic shows and the Jeep driver took a bad line, got wedged between the rocks and was still there when we left!
Jon points out the line through The Chute to Rudy
Santa Catalina Mountains, Tucson, Feb 5th
Another great ride with the SDMB club at Golder Ranch trails. This was rated a 'medium' ride and was mainly fast swoopy single track through cactus, sand and rocky trails. No prolonged climbing this time, but some great downhills, especially The Chutes. Weather perfect again.
This fun technical uphill section stopped everyone, except one rider. Click here to find out who cleaned it (twice)!
Here's Brandt showing how to ride the drop-off.
No ride is complete without great burritos!!
