Thread: Gooseberry Mesa

  1. #1

    Gooseberry Mesa

    I believe we had about 15 people come ride on Saturday morning. It was a little chilly and windy up on the mesa, but that didn't make the trail any less awesome. I had an excellent ride and enjoyed everyone's company. It was a fun group!

    Feel free to add your photos and video to this thread or make your own. I only have a few and I know there were tons of cameras. I am looking forward to seeing those climbing videos.

    Looks like a fun place. I better not let my son Aaron see this. He's going to want to ride instead of hike next time we're in town! May be too hot come June, though?

    I didn't pull my camera out very often on these rides but here is what I have for Gooseberry. My favorite is Fourtycal's bike repair. Bolt breaks.... no problem just use a little bailing wire and zip ties.

    After riding Goose I rode Stucki Springs with Grant and Charlie from Chicago another 13 miles we were dead tired after finishing that ride! On our way up we ran into Glasscutter, Garbanzo, Dan and Shad where Bearclaw and Stucki converge. So good to see Glasscutter back on his bike and confronting the beast.

    I rode approximately 13 miles of downhill on Friday and 30 miles of up down and one long haul up on Sat. My shoulders feel like I did 300 push ups. And I have hit a wall today! I am physically exhausted after going 100 miles an hour packing, moving, unpacking, and riding all in one week!

    Can't wait to ride with you all again. I say next mtn trip should be to Green River WY! Check out the new bike park and 25 miles of bike trails Greyhair keeps posting.

    Awesome pixs! I love that ride. I wish I could have made it.
    Still trying to get in riding shape.

    Nice! I love, love, love Gooseberry and can't wait to go again. Just had knee surgery last week so it will be awhile for me. Maybe mid-May.
    Are we there yet?

    I have just about decided that we could take Sombeech to China mountain biking and someone on the trail would say "Hey aren't you that Bogley guy?" Every time I ride with you someone recognizes you. Pretty cool.

    Awesome photos!! I'm having to transfer GoPro footage from laptop back to SD card, then back to my home computer. As soon as I get it done I'll pull some stills to share as well.
    I just dropped by to see what condition my condition is in.
