Monday Vacation Day Trail 100 Mountain Bike Ride

Monday vacation day: three very sweet words. I used the day wisely, made a few adjustments to my 1998 Bontrager Privateer S mountain bike, donned my Tachyon XC helmet cam, and went for a ride. Following the John Romeo Alpha "ride to the ride" rule, I rode out to the Dreamy Draw parking lot, filled up the water bottles, and hit the trail. The temperature was in the high sixties, almost too warm for long sleeves. It rained a little here in the last few days, so the dust was suppressed, and the air was very clear. Trail 100 is not the world's most difficult or challenging trail, just close enough to home for me to ride to, and guaranteed to be fun on a warm winter day. Get up. Go ride.


  1. Nice Video. Did you cover the entire trail? Looked like you had a bit of video from the entire thing. Ended up at Tatum?

    Have to say that you have to get a single speed. False advertising. Otherwise, nice blog. I am now following.

  2. One of my bikes is a single speed. The canal video was was shot riding that one. Don't have a single speed mountain bike...yet... :)

  3. If you don't want to spend big bucks, I bought a Motobecane Outcast 29 from bikes Been very happy with it. Anyway, details on my post at: if you care to see.

  4. Thanks for that suggestion, I'll check out your Outcast 29 post.
