    Just a couple spots. One on the back of my upper calf just below the knee from what I presume was the foot-peg during my gymnastic dismount and the other on my left rear hammy from the cyclerack when I bumped into a wall on Poison Spider.

    My joints and muscles were much sorer every single day! A product of getting older I'm sure!encore.gif

    OK, where was I...

    Day 2 Well, let's see what's on the menu.

    Appetizer - Slickrock Single Track Trail

    Main Course - Hell's Revenge Trail

    Dessert - Fin's & Thing's (North Portion)

    The TW crew rides the famous Moab Single Track Slickrock Trail. It was fun! Today's crew: Old man w/2 many guns&knives, Stig, Plumbstraight, Fred, Don, and Admiral





    The Appetizer. I don't know if the below photo is of the Practice Loop but we rode it first. Boy, I'm glad we practiced first as there was some doozie area's on the main trail.


    Stig. It was our first time on the Slickrock Trail.


    Sure is purty out yonder...when you don't have to keep your eye on the trail...and mountain bikers!


    I keep thinking of the Flintstones every time I come to Moab. Today is no exception.


    Lunch on the hill overlooking Moab...the "mother of all biker" destinations




    More trail yummy-ness




    Goodness gracious, the views are spectacular...well, so is the riding


    to be continued...on Hell's Revenge

    Reading about The Slickrock Trail; it says the Practice Loop is not easier than the rest. Just that if you or your bike get busted up, you are close to the parking area!!!

    Wish I knew that when we started, because a couple of things in the practice loop made me think I must be gonna die on the main route.

    Outstanding videos of super SlickRock experiences on a TW. Somehow I remember it as being steeper in places.
    Without a visible rider ahead one can see how it can be dificult to predict just what lurks ahead around some of those blind sidehill corners. One sure doesn't get bored on The SlickRock or the Practice Loop.
