A March Mountain Biking Fix – Fruita, CO
The last significant snow we saw in the mountains was in the first few days of March and it had been 50º and sunny since. Spring skiing can be awesome, when combined with cold beers, but I needed a mountain bike and a desert fix. I’m pretty privileged to be two hours from the mountain biking mecca of Fruita so a quick overnight trip is a piece of cake. I was able to get out and there and get 10 miles in around the 18 Road Trails before sundown and another 20 miles in the next day on the Kokopelli Trails before coming back for work. Not bad for a 22 hour trip.
But instead of being my fix, the trip acted as more of a catalyst in wanting more mountain biking and for summer to just be here already.
