Spring in Fruita, Part Deux
Another Spring weekend in the deserts of Colorado.
(A Buddy’s first foray into playing his new toy…)
“Joe’s Ridge is accessed just off the 18 Road at the upper parking lot. It starts out as a mostly gentle climb, with one or two steeper anaerobic sections, characteristic of this area. The trail soon climbs out to a ridge and descends. It’s fast and flowy, and encourages you to let go of the brakes and let it roll. There are just a few spots that can bite you as the speeds increase, but it’s mostly just a sweet section of trail. The views are great and there are more trees here compared to other trails.” – MTBProject

Horsethief Bench with the Colorowdies
“From the junction with Mary’s Loop, 99% of riders get off their bike and carry their bike 100 yards down to the bench. It’s large drop after large drop, with ledges, boulders, and a few slots thrown in to keep things complicated.” – MTBProject
