I could not make the ride today, because I am backpacking tonight at the grand canyon. I was able to squeeze in a morning session for my son.

He was riding laps at 6 in the morning.

no connector except w/dirt/mtn bike or horse.
trails that are there usually go perpindicular to the orographic flow of the land,ie. up&down, not serpentining making it more user friendly and consequently creating deeper/wider erosion ruts. not BFF IMHO.....

way mo betta, fun routes a little further out of town in most any direction.
if you want consul, we can meet for lunch or somethin'. bring tonto fs map and you'll be good to go. gps would be nice also.

can 't wait to hear/see ride report of todays antics.......

We had an amazing ride today. Thanks to CrozB and Gulliver for showing us a great time and Karla for letting Gulliver come out and play! That dog is the coolest thing on four legs. I didn't take too many pics but I will get some linked when I can.

Yeah fly over is a blast if the tiles load fast enough. If not you can repeat and the tiles should be loaded :-)

Mogollon Rim Ride

Thanks for the ride this weekend. I had a blast!!

I made a video clip from the ride. It's my first time trying to do a video but I think it looks okay. I plagiarized some of the posted pictures of things I didn't have, I hope you don't mind.

okay okay, I give up, I can't get it to display here
haven't managed to figure that part out yet.

Here's the link on youtube though
