Celebrating Columbus Day with some off-roading!
We were finally able to get the trio back together for a little off-road riding at Poco this past Monday, which was a holiday for some of us!
The day was just right for riding! We headed over to the Forest Exploration/Fendley Station Loop in hopes of checking out the new trails they are putting in for the IMBA Richmond Regional Ride Center!
There was actually a guy working and we chatted with him about the plans! They have made lots of progress on the trail building for the hand cycling/beginner trails!
There are wide trails and berms along with that awesome "skinny" log so far!
Poco will truly be a destination once all of these new trails are completed! We are so proud of this project and the progress being made!
We encountered two turtles on the side of the fire road and I think we interrupted them. Never seen that before in person!
We examined the many flags marking the new trails! So exciting!
The leaves are beginning to fall, and that is one of the prettiest times of the year at the park!
After our loop over on Forest Exploration we decided to try out the Blue trail before quitting!
It felt so great to finally hit the single track again!
And, even better to have our friend, Mountain Bike Mike (MBM), back too!
We even rode in our usual order...me, MBM, and Dynamo!
I'm the turtle of the group so they follow me!
We finished up with around 14 miles! We really loved being back!
