Prospect Trail

Was in Telluride July 1, first day the Prospect Trail was opened for the summer. Rode the gondola up to start the ride, finishing with some great downhill flow. Was even greeted with bacon and grilled cheese at the top by the San Miguel Bike Alliance.

It’s not often I skip the uphill ride and shuttle to the top. But sometimes it just has to be done. That was the case last weekend when my buddy Drew, aka @elementelectric, came to town. We shuttled Pass Trail-Engineer Mountain AND Haflin Creek Trail dame day. Only about 15 miles total of riding, but we dropped close to 5,000 vertical feet and rode two epic downhills.

Jayhawks Hit the Trail

Allen, from Kansas, was looking for an activity with some adventure to it on his last day of vacation in Durango. They had already hiked, rafted, rode horses and shopped. He decided to try mountain biking for him, his daughter, and her friend. They all did great, with his daughter declaring that was the most fun activity they had done on their trip.

Brothers from Denmark

Jonas and Nicolai, two teenage brothers visiting from Denmark, shredded the trails in Overend Park. These two didn’t have a lot of experience riding single track, but they were super athletic and had a great time. We did a 2 hour tour covering 14.3 miles (22.6 km) and 1,721 feet (525 m) climbing. They both agreed the Durango Mountain Bike Tour was way more exciting than any of the other activities they did in town.
