Last weekend brought snow in Boulder, so it was time to migrate to the desert for some hard trainings on dry trails! Check out some photos from the weekend:
I met up with Howard Grotts, Payson McElveen, and Rotem Ishai for some big rides on Saturday and Sunday. We pre-rode some of the stages for the Moab Rocks stage race later on this year. Here we're scoping some of the trickier lines on Porcupine Rim.
I thought I came to Moab to escape the snow! The top of the LPS loop didn't cooperate. Howard was particularly thrilled to have cold wet feet.
We all the way up!
The views were not bad. You can just see the road where we will descend to by the river. The trails cuts through some pretty crazy terrain to get there.
Pictures never do the lines justice. There were some techy moves, but luckily the sandstone has good traction.
It's always necessary to do a little off-the-bike exploring when in the desert.
We just had to stop to admire the views.
From the canyons on the left to snow capped peaks on the right, there aren't many other places where you can see literally for hundreds of miles.
Emily bonked at the end of the ride on Sunday - and then got really cold.
