May Valley and Hurkey Creek Trails Epic

zzzIMG_3254

  My first attempt to ride the "24 hour loop" went a bit pear shaped, and I missed the turn off to Rage through the Sage and Tunnel of Love. While getting my steed fixed up, I got a lot of useful trail intel from the shop owner. The trails he marked for me on a very basic map were some local secrets, and there is no way I would have been able to ride them without this inside intel. The good thing was, I managed to map a loop that included the Rage through the Sage and Tunnel of Love.. I … [Read more...]

  The Idyllwild Trails in California did their best to keep me away.

Munds Trail Sedona

. I have been mountain biking around the USA now for 4 years, and also spend a lot of time on the European trails, and can say that I have done my fair share of trails. This also means that I'm not often lost for words on the trails, but every so often, out of the blue I find myself on a trail that just blows me away. It's not just the trail, it's a mixture of everything.. The trail, the scenery, the weather, how I'm feeling, how my bike bike is performing etc etc. The Munds Wagon Trail and … [Read more...]
