This past friday 743power and I decided to go see what all of the 6 mile hype was about. I have to say that it is a very fun trail system and that it was well maintained. One thing I liked was that the trails weren't over the top technical, that combined with the great flow of the trails allow for a very fast ride while still being technical enough to keep you interested and on your toes. The only downside that I noticed was that I had a hell of a time getting my tires to hook up on the sections of trail that were covered in that red rock. What kind of tires are you guys running back here, my Mythos weren't cutting it.

When its really dry you'll get some tire drift.. Glad you liked the trails, did you ride both sides of the park?

Yeah we definitely enjoyed ourselves, I want to get back here more so I can actually learn the trail system. I'm not sure about where exactly we rode. If I remember correctly we put in about 16.5 miles but that included us getting lost and hitting a summer camp of some sort, and then getting more lost and coming out in a retention pond behind some neighborhood.

Do one of you guys ride a Christini?

Colin rides a stripped and polished Giant trance and I ride a bmc fourstroke. We ran into 2 guys at one point during our ride, other than that it seemed we had the whole place to ourselves. You'll be fine Pearl, I'm a fat guy. Anyone can keep up with a fat guy, hahahaha.

Red Shale is the rock your referring to and I have had a lot of luck with high volume tires and high thread count tires like the Racing Ralphs....

ditto on Luke's sentiments.

I gotta jump on a 6mile train one night with some locals.
