When the text-invite came in for a Sunday ride in the desert, I was in.  No questions asked.  After rolling on snow with the 3.8 inch tires, I wanted to see how they’d do on sand.  Follow-up text messages said we were going to bike up Pinyon Mountain Road (desert two-track) to the drop-off.   I had not ridden this area yet, so I was really looking forward to it.

Riding with local mtb vets was a blast, as it always is.  Years of experience and knowledge of the land is an added benefit of riding with them.  The outing was super-positive.

Highlights:

Rolling the squeeze.

Exploring a side canyon, only to get turned back.

Lunch surrounded by so much beauty.

The fat tires performed as people say they do–perfect for the desert.

The view from the drop-off.
