Had a tasty 30+ mile MTB ride here in Flag the other day. Would have made it longer but to quote my friend The M.A.F.E. “my sauce was pretty weak”. The trails here have become rideable so early it still looks like Fall out there. Hardly any leaves and lots of wind and clouds in the sky.
I have been wanting to get on to dirt as close to my house as possible and now that the Flagstaff Loop Trail runs across the urban trail from Thorpe Park (right by my house) it is possible to not only ride dirt but a fun single track as well. I recorded the track with my iPhone but forgot to start it until was a few miles into the ride. Check it out here if you care to. If you follow the link for the loop trail you will see a link to an interactive map of the whole thing. Next time when I get to Snowbowl road I plan to hook left and ride up to Friedland Prarie Road and over to the new ‘Twisted Sister’ trail. That will make for a close to 40 mile ride.
I’ll leave you with a couple of photos. Take it deep.
