Drove Gene and his son Gavin the 25 miles south to experience the amazing Alien Run Trail. This is high desert riding at its finest. Located just south of Aztec, New Mexico, rumor has it that an alien space craft crashed at this site. I have to say that the three single track loops you can take are out of this world! The boys handled the 6 mile beginner loop like champs
Laura from 4CornersTV.com contacted me about taking her on a mountain bike tour and filming a segment for her new web series Weekend Warrior. I met Laura and her camera person Lauren at Hassle Free Sports, who provided a free bike rental, to begin the tour. I was a little aprehensive when Laura told me she had zero mountain bike experience, but it was apparent right away that she could ride. From the various things she has done filming Weekend Warrior like sky diving, rock climbing, and rafting, she was well prepared to mountain bike on single track. We rode a nice tour through Overend Park up Perins Gulch, around Crestview, on Engleharts, and finished with a steep downhill on Ned’s Hill. She went from beginner to advanced beginner in one hour. Be sure to get on the web at www.4cornerstv.com and check out episodes of Laura’s Weekend Warrior series. The Durango Mountain Bike Tours episode will air in a week or so. When it does, we will post the link here. Stay tuned.
