What with winter doldrums upon us, it's easy to get jaded with the lack of diversity the weather offers ABQ by way of riding. Around here, the middle of winter leaves us but a few of options with clear singletrack- White/Red Mesa, Placitas, and our adjacent foothills.
It's always right around mid January when the days are shortest, the cold most wretched, that my usual loops seem all played out, bleh.
To beat those blahs back, lately I've taken to exploring 'new' trails in our foothills- little used by bikers for one reason or another. Each one narrow, sketchy, offering a bit of a challenge to this weekend warrior.
And not yet on The Sanitizer's radar.
Here's hoping they stay that way.
