More Single Track on the BRP

Post  modette on Wed Nov 09, 2011 8:57 pm

I lead this ride. Turned out to be a hell of an epic ride. This video shows what the BRP can do. I plan to lead another WDKR (We Don't Know Ride) at RMAR for 2012. Reason for the name, the brother in-law signed me up to lead, and I had no idea...so I made it a hard ride for bigger bikes. It turned into ride single track that had not been ridden in a long time, but yet legal on the MVUM's. If you are even in the Saguache, CO area look up to the West of town for trail number 795. I would advise going West to East though, East to West might be even more of a challenge. It test your GPS abilities with paper map abilities to find the trail in spots.



In this one I decide to hoop the BRP across a rock to save going down where everyone is having issues. I rode circles trying to find the trail, after a bit I decided it had to have gone across the stream so that is where I lead everyone and sure enough it did. Besides knowing how to use a GPS and paper maps reading the terrain helps, I saw what looked to me as old tracks that crossed.



This picks up at the water crossing, and we get yelled at down the road by a land owner who is not helpful as we had lost the trail. In short, we just missed the split because the sign was laying on the ground...hmmm put it up and maybe you would not have to deal with people. Want to see the encounter skip to 7:27 Kicker was we could see the FS sign on the other side of his fence. As we head out, we come to a lady who is friendly and says, "he should of just let you through his gate....but she tells us where to go. That is all he had to say. True we went through a few gates, but in CO gates don't mean anything...plus we figured if we were on the wrong path someone would tell us where to go. Plus seeing as it was an area with 6-8 cabins it is not all HIS land...LOL I love the jump to Trespassing the guy makes as if he owns all the land...LOL Oh well if you don't come across crazy people its not an Adventure.

I have got to figure out a way to head out west for a month and ride in CO, UT, and Baja. Those are my fantasy rides. Maybe one day...
