Robert and Laura

Took Robert and Laura out on our classic Town and Trails tour. A perfect way to spend the morning riding bikes, learning about Durango’s history, geology, architecture, mountain bike culture, and more. No better way to finish off the ride with some ice cold local Ska beers!

Girl’s Trip

Maggie and Tracey from Houston, Texas took a girl’s trip to the Southwest. They were staying at a friend’s house in Mancos, 20 mins west of Durango, and had a full itinerary every day. They were sure to include a morning of mountain biking with us to make sure they got “a true Colorado experience.” Happy to say, we did not disappoint. The girls did great covering a 6-mile Spurline loop then 7 more miles with our town and trails tour

Jon and Holly

Had a really fun time riding with Jon and Holly from Virginia. The duo are mainly gravel bike riders typically covering 50+ miles on rides. While not a lot of mountain bike experience, they rode like rock stars! We were able to start up Horse Gulch, come down around the Fort and get into the Test Tracks. The conversation was great and the beers after the ride oh so cold!

He’s Baaaaacccckk

Our boy Steve O is back. Steve’s first tour with us was in 2017. He’s been out every year since and we’ve become pretty good friends. Always a fun time when he comes out and we get together.

Meet up in Durango

Why not use Durango as a meeting place for family living in different areas. Joel and his kids Maddie and Isaac from San Diego met up with brother in law Drexel and cousin Max from Dallas and we set out on 3 hours of single track fun!

Parents Day Out

Garrett and Helen left the kids with the Grandparents for the morning and went out on a four hour spin with me on Fathers Day. The happy couple from California brought their own bikes, which included a 1998 Gary Fisher and a 2000 something Giant. They did the trick allowing us to cover close to 15 miles.

Twice as Nice

Kim first rode with us last summer, her first real MTB experience. Well, she came back this year for more. Fresh off of an overnight rafting trip on the upper Animas, I decided to challenge her with a rip through Twin Buttes and the famous Ed and Flow downhill. She did amazing, and already booked her ride for 2022. See ya next year Kim.

Never Too Young To Start

Fairly recent retirees Kent and Lisa came up from the 505 to try their hand in mountain biking. While Lisa rides a gravel bike a fair amount, and Kent commutes around town on an E Bike, neither have really done any proper mountain biking. The two had not even been on a MTB since the 80’s. Needless to say, the high end bikes and new tech supplied by our friends @pedalthepeaks had them blow away. I took them to the Spurline trails south of town to coach them up. After a 6 m loop on smooth rolling single track, I decided to take them around town a bit and out to OMP for some more dirt. The smiles were amazing!

Nawlins in the House

We get clients from all over the world and throughout the US. Sunday I took out JP, his daughter Hazel, and niece Kenzie, from the fabulous city of New Orleans, Louisiana. The three were all new to mountain biking, so after some instruction and coaching in the parking lot of @pedalthepeaks we headed out to the Spurline trail and took a mellow 6 mile loop through smooth flowing single track.
