Finally getting back out on the bike after a long hiatus. It has become clear to me that mental preparation via daily visits to Vital MTB are not sufficient substitutes for actual saddle time.
The trails in Capitol Forest are about as prime as they get right now. After a week of warm the puddles are nearly all gone, and the clay is buffed and fast. Loose rocks? Yes. Dusty? Yes. Fast and firm tread? Yes. This is the stuff February dreams are made of.
Green VS Red, or both. The green equestrian trails offer mostly predictable Tolkeinesque psychedelic green fern lined single line/track descents with lots of flat corners and a few isolated section of mildy rooty tech or luge-like warp factor(GL6 anyone?) while the red moto trails offer mostly double track descents with moto-shaped-bermy-flow, chunder, duff, rocks, whoops, ruts, an occasional loose cinder block and multiple line choices in between the edges. Two unique trail systems, one destination. The flavor of the moment? RED.
Mt Molly Loop/Trail 40 descent. As classic as Capitol Forest classic
moto trail descents get. Strava up and see where you are in the
