Riding the Doctor Park trail in Colorado. 25 miles of climbing, descending, rocky, and flowy trails – all during a forest fire.
As one of the major tent-pole stops on my 2020 road trip, I had the pleasure of riding DuPont trails with Barrett from Red Wolf Bike Tours in nearby Brevard.
I met Zack on Reddit. He was new in town and was looking for someone who could show him around the San Francisco Bay Area trail systems. I was free, I was bored, I said “sure”.
My neighbor recently got a new bike from his Brother-in-law. It’s a first-generation Yeti, and it’s awesome. He has been dying to get it out on the trails near our house, so I finally arranged the time and we got the kids together and headed out.
In September of 2018, I took a 3-week road trip around the western states with my camera and my mountain bike. While on that trip, I randomly drove through the Rocky Mountains and, like many before me, fell in love with Colorado. On the advice of a friend, and while looking for a place to ride for the day, I stopped in Winter Park to ride my first ever bike park.
Skypark was originally a winter wonderland theme park. It reopened in 2016 featuring shopping, food, a Santa Clause chalet, wedding and catering accommodations, and hiking and biking trails.
It’s been an interesting holiday season to say the least! We had a great time during the holidays, but one ride in particular between Christmas and New Year’s Eve was rough. Watch the video to learn more!
