Pine Log: 3, Me: 0

Today was my 3rd attempt at riding Pine Log. It ended in almost 2.5 hours of bike-whacking through briars. UGGGGH. Not my idea of a good time. I'm not going back there unless it's with someone that actually knows how to access the good trails.

I'm a complete PowerBar junkie. My current favorites are the Gel Blasts and the Energize Smoothie Bars


Typical Pine Log road that leads to nowhere. It also happens to look just like 90% of the other roads out there that also lead to nowhere.

One of many dead ends. However, this is the one that ended in the 2+ hour bike-whack nightmare.

Me, dirty

Soma Juice 29er with Ergon grips. I love this bike!!! I can actually do a wheelie on it, I've never been able to wheelie a 29er.

Post-bike-whack shins. Ouch.

Where is this trail located? Take a look at the land Sat and you should be able to map out a route that won't get you lost.

Besides lost is just a state of mind. Consider it exploring.
The fruit smoothie bars and the Cola gummis are the bomb. The green apple gels are nice in the summer.

Peace,
Metro

I bought a 26er Waterford in July. Couldn't stand it so I built the Juice in August. Got Tabetha one too. We're loving the ride.

Its been handling the high Altitude of Colorado just fine with a rigid carbon cycles fork on the front end.

Maybe I'll get a blog rolling again so you can actually see it.
