Last night as I was finishing a ride in near hypothermia after being sleeted, snowed and rained upon I was thinking how I could live in the desert and be happy. Probably not entirely true as I need trees and the alpine to be truly happy riding my bike but the west or Colorado specifically has taught me to enjoy all environments that has singletrack since that which is my most beloved form, the Alpine, is only open 4 to 5 months a year.

To tell you that the Buffalo Triangle still holds. Buffalo Creek, Beloved buff singletrack of the semi mountainous nature is the place we go when nothing else can be ridden or even if everything else can be ridden then we go because, its just to damn fun to pass up. I Met AV Boy, PBR, and Spike for some chilly action on the buff in tacky Buffalo, Thats "Buff" to you good sir, Creek.

Climbing up Collar Bone Hill I went into an understated bonk. My heart rate was screaming at 180 beats per minute according to my Garmin 305 and I was being crushed by AV Boy.

The desert grows on me. The lack of available alpine riding gives way to going to far side of the state where dry dusty trails and a blazing sun that I can never escape, gives me that which I crave...an adventure and new trails.

The boys and I are taking the weekend off and going to get some desert therapy in Rabbit Valley, just outside of Fruita. AV Boy and myself will be the 1st to arrive, hopefully to set up camp at a overlook of the Colorado river and then head back to Fruita to hit the Kokopelli Loops. While Horsethief Bench is said to be manys fav trail of this area, by far, Steve's and Handcuffs are my favs.

To incorporate multi geared bliss on the Falcon including the eva lovely granny gear, I needed a front derailleur. The one thing the Falcon lacks though is braze ons of any sort to secure a cable or its housing as the Mighty Empire believes one gear rules them all or some sort of BS Dickyism philosophy.

The Secret has been released, heavy hub dropped and more gears then I'll know what to do with.
This year's summer of Death Marches will feel that much easier with a granny to help me at 13 + thousand feet.

Decomposed granite trails, wildflowers blooming, and a few patches of snow to remind us that winter was here but finally is releasing itself from the Front Range.

Saturday night one of the local rider's band was playing at Ironworks so a few of us took that as a que to have a ride before and back to Ironworks for some brews and tunes. Good ride, good tunes, and good brew as usual.
