The dirt road wasn’t that bad. The gravel is packed in pretty well. It wasn’t that wet and there were only a few corners where there was a little bit of mud. The hardest part was that you couldn’t stand much out of the saddle because you would lose traction. For me, it was like […]
Mount Robson, Canada. Edit:Something else Ed wouldn’t climb. Edit.2:Too many quotable in this one. Good stuff.
Time in Arizona is running short, so it’s fallen to me to prioritize the infinite list of future trips, and knock off the most desirable. This weekend I hope to do two, plus bonuses: Bill Williams Mountain singletrack, the old Flag-Grandview stage route, and point in between. The first option is 140-50 miles. ~60 miles […]
