I was very excited to get a call from Brian to set up a tour. Brian grew up and went to school in nearby Bloomfield, NM, and he spent his summers in Durango, where he rode his BMX bike on the trails among other things. He had not ridden in Durango in almost 20 years, and as I told him, the amount of singletrack has more then doubled in town since then. His new Santa Cruz has replaced the old BMX bike, and I wanted to take him to ride Durango’s newest trail network at Twin Buttes. We weren’t done there, as we headed east into Horse Gulch, up and over Telegraph finishing out Big Canyon. At the end of the day we covered 25.5 miles and 2,535 feet elevation gain, and made plans to ride again soon.
