Kyle came into town this week from Greenville, SC with his wife for a nice southwest vacation. He started out riding motocross as a kid and transitioned to mountain biking about 4 years ago. His local trails are in the famed Pisgah National Forest about an hour from his house, so he definitely came with some great experience . He rented a Santa Cruz Bronson from 2nd Ave sports, the same bike he rides at home, and we set off for what would be a four hour ride covering almost 30 miles and 3,000 feet elevation gain. His next stop from Durango is Sedona, AZ, 5 hours away.
