Summer Trips?
« on: April 06, 2008, 09:59:41 PM »
Anyone planning any cool riding trips for the summer?

I have a weekend trip planned for FATS up in South Carolina coming up in two weeks and I'm working on planning a trip out west for some lift-assisted gravity riding at Mammoth and Northstar in Tahoe.  I haven't been to Northstar in over 4 years and they've added a ton since I was there last.

A couple of years ago a group of us did this trip - well, we did the Telluride to Moab trip, then they added the Durango to Moab one.  It was great.  The first day, riding out of Telluride to the first hut was a KILLER climb.  Long, steep, up the mountain, short on breath, but we made it.  After that it wasn't so bad until the next to the last hut going up John Brown Canyon.  Long, steep, up the mountain, short on breath, but we made it too.  Great trip!  Wouldn't mind doing the Durango one sometime.

Dunno - no eraser here - just haven't gotten them.  Not that I'm looking for them either.
