Well that didn't suck.

Buff buff buff buff buff. You managed to find some trail that skips all the rocks in the Rocky Mountains

Looks like Fantasy Island goodness up in the pines.

Good Stuff.

To me, and probably a heck of a lot of Tucson areas mtb'ers, it's amazing how hard it actually is to find technical trails in other states. Just about everything seems to be buff when riding elsewhere.

I feel like if you can master all of the Tucson tech, you have a golden pass to ride any trail any where you want without fear of it being too technical for your skill set.

And, as you can see from my YouTube page, I'm getting like Johnny Cash -- I've been everywhere, man.

Technical is technically technical.

What did you use to record the standing shots? Seeing zoom working there...

Telluride also has free DH stuff off the gondola, did you try any of that?

We carry a couple of hand-held cameras.

This trip, we didn't do any of the DH routes, because we were scrambling to beat a downpour that was moving into Telluride right at the end of our loop. But last year and the year before, we repeatedly rode every DH run, starting with No Brainer and working up to World Cup. Fun stuff indeed (in spite of the guilt)!

Telluride is my favorite town. Whether biking, skiing, bluegrass or camping in the hills. Food is great and amazing quality of live music in a tiny mountain town.
You want tech, check out Penitente, fun.

Any favorite routes there? Might be going there in a couple weeks combines with a stop at Cortez and Durango. I'll stay in Telluride longer if there's good stuff.

Well, due to snow that was still there in early July, we have yet to ride the highest trails, which I hear are awesome and demoralizing at the same time.

But most definitely, do the Gentleman's Loop and then all the free DH runs.

Ride down from Alta Lakes to Telluride is fun. There's also a descent from Lizard Head Pass thru the Illium Valley that's sweet. If you have the lungs I love the Bear Creek climb but usually hike it, steep. Also the ride to the top if Bridleveil Falls is tough and behind it almost as steep. Nicola Tesla built the world's first hydro powered light system there. You could even climb over Ophir Pass to the south but it'll be tough, actually 2 passes the other is up Tomboy right out of town. The ski lift is FREE, get some gravity rides.
Also a fan of Phils World and Sand Canyon in Cortez.
Baked in Telluride is my favorite bakery on earth, many choices for all meals.
Telluride has festivals all summer (bluegrass my favorite, jazz, mushroom, blues and brews and more) so check the schedule if you want to avoid crowds.

Thanks! The bakery is a good tip as well (hard to avoid a good pastry). We can't really change the dates at this point though. It's sort of a reverse honeymoon trip; we're doing a ton of riding first then dealing with family and the wedding at the end of the trip.
