Welcome Back

DMBT’s Mission Statement is “Make friends every ride.” That is certainly true with our good friend Michelle from Tennessee. Michelle’s first tour with us was September 2014. Since then we have been on more than half dozen rides together. She’s a great rider with family ties to Durango that keeps her coming back each year. Happy to be able to keep introducing new trails to her such as Phils World this past weekend. Until the next time, Cheers!

Early Season Riding

The 2021 tour season is getting under way. Spring has sprung and DMBT is up and running offering tours to early season hot spots such as Alien Run and the Glade Area Recreation Area which includes the famous Road Apple Course near Aztec, New Mexico. Another early spring option is the ever popular Phil’s World trail system thirty minutes west of Durango near Cortez, Colorado. The past weekend was perfect weather and trail conditions for some high desert riding.

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.

Beauty of the San Juans

The San Juan Mountains offer some of the most beautiful views in all of Colorado. We are so fortunate to be able to have them in our backyard and call them are playground. Yesterday was another incredible day riding in the mountains with good friends Walt and Dan. We knocked out almost 40 miles and 5,000 feet elevation gain riding the Colorado Trail from Kennebec pass to town.
