On our last day of riding before getting to Cocoa Beach we decided to try Chuck Lennon County Park. It’s in the middle of nowhere and boy were we surprised. They had two trails closed (double black and a red –which was all man made features), but the rest of the trails certainly got your … More Chuck Lennon was no lemon, it was Oranges!
The Suwannee River ride was a soft pedal ride along the Suwannee and the Withlacoochee rivers. We rode the Big Oak loop (and we saw the Big Oak), both inner and outer and rode by the confluence of the two rivers. Riding there was ho hum, but a nice morning spent on the bike is … More The Suwanee River, San Felasco, Gainesville, and Santos

We left Padre, headed out of Texas, rode in Lafayette before the rain then headed to Hattiesburg Mississippi to look at a van for sale. Nice van, but not configured for us. So on to Meridian. Bonita Lakes is a reservoir right in the city and Trailforks showed trails. The first day we rode the … More Padre to Pensacola
Well, it’s been a while…. A seven week stay on South Padre Island is done and we’re headed, slowly, toward Florida. November on Padre was warm, with only 30% of the days kiteable. It was worse for the windsurfers, so we shouldn’t complain. The last week in Padre we got some good, windy stormy, albeit … More Back on the road

There are so many trails in Prescott and we mapped out three perfect rides- First from Painted Rock, Javelina, Tatanka (great fun), a little of West Side Story, Missing Link. Day two we stayed in the Thumb Butte area but rode from the Iron Spring area–Noodle, Juniper Gate, … More Three Perfect Prescott Days
Flagstaff was a bit frosty in the morning, but we chose a nice ride up to Schultz Pass. flagstaff has thwarted our attempts the last few we’ve tried to ride. This time the snafu was a cell phone escaping an unzipped pocket after one of the fun jumps on Schultz Creek. Our plan was for … More Fast Stop in Flagstaff and Sedona
Last year, Butch rode two days in Gallup and got chased by cold, rainy weather, so this year we went back together to check out the riding under sunny skies. Our first day was in the Zuni Mountains- USFS land with well laid out trails through a full grown and well maintained forest. This was … More Gallup NM???
Between Moab and Gallup, we stopped in Cortez for a night and a ride in Phil’s World. The trails are one way, so there isn’t much choice of mixing up the ride, but we climbed up to the ridge twice and came swooping and laughing down through Rib Cage. A nice stopover on the way … More Cortez’s Phil’s World
Ah, warm sunny skies and lots of slickrock, we never get tired of Moab. Bypassing Park city (16 degrees at night, 35 during the day) we skipped right to Moab from Provo. Our mid-afternoon arrival gave us time to stretch our legs. We parked at Bar M and thought the trail might be lame, but … More Moab- Everyone’s favorite
