10 MINUTES FROM HOME? WTF?
I've heard about the place nine million times, Hall Ranch, never rode it, never needed to. So today I met Jenn up there after she got done working and we rode the place. And the entire ride I'm like WTF? And it's ten minutes from where we live. The trail is very similar to stuff I've ridden at Buffalo Creek, ground up granite "sand" and incredible riding. I guess there is way more of this stuff to come. There were literally hundreds of dear up there, which we had to stop for, and a climb and descent that have a bit of everything, I actually had to pay attention for a change. Perfect, there is life after Roxie. Looks like I'll be keeping the mountain bikes close at hand after all, and often.
Western Kansas indeed, with Oskar Blues Brewery right at the bottom of the ride, I hate when that happens.
