Fun ride today. Im usually on the ball for pictures but I forgot to bring my phone till the last ride of the day.

I got to take Dave’s Alta for a ride toward the end of the day. Was very interesting. All three of us were on electrics. Have to admit I absolutely loved how quiet our ride was. Really cool.

We did one final loop and I managed to take a few pictures. Ill put them up later.

Thanks for the help burning in the virgin trail on top on the hill. Will get easier as a line forms and some of the leaves get moved aside.

This is a tricky little up. Mike Poole of course cut this line.

Last couple shots from the new "yellow" trail.

This log itself isn't hard, but you have to turn and get maybe a bike length before having to hop the log.

This is the last hill. Its steeper than it looks and the leaves make it a little tough. You also have to make a 90 degree turn right at the bottom and then go up. A few people had trouble here. But Dave and Jason make it look easy on their electrics.

That was me Phil. I have to admit I was looking at my phone and my trailer grabbed it turning around :shrug:

I did not realize it dragged it that far.

Watch out for me when you are directing traffic. Or may be I should watch out. :dry:

:lol2:

The videos of me and jason looks like the trail is totally flat right there. Until you notice my legs are up against my handlebars and i'm weaving and bobbing, trying to keep my tire hooked up. :roost:


I'll post up some helmetcam if its any good but it should be clear that we all had fun provided by our generous host.

Yes, it does look annoyingly flat.
