Climbing Snakes and Ladders

Dirt Hombres! :)

Dirt Hombres! 🙂

We are getting to that time of year when the Dirt Hombres Weekly Night Ride has to be re-named the Weekly After Work Ride with less darkness and more sunshine everyday as we roll towards summer.

Eban guided us on a new climbing route up Snakes and Ladders as well as Extension Ladder. I’ve come down those trails, but never tried to go up them. There were some fun challenging sections to conquer. From the top we rode South Ridge, Fun Trail and Shock Treatment out to the parking lot as darkness started to fall.

I love having a regular mid-week ride on the books and a bunch of folks on tap keen to get out for a bonus shred. After a day of work I am not at my best in terms of bike riding, but it’s still good for my mental health just to be out turning pedals in the forest with people you like even if no PRs will be set.
