This weekend (Sat.) we ran the first course preview for the TwinPeaks ultra that covered miles 18-32 of the race. We had a great time and met some really cool people. Next weekend is the second course preview that covers miles 1-9/22-31 (18.6 miles). Although it was pretty cold the rain was very light so we didnt have to contend with the mud on our run. However, Sunday was another story.
I decided to ride some trails that I had never been to at Bonelli park and got stuck in some of the worst mud ever. I spent a lot of time hiking (on my 4" lifted bike shoes) because I couldnt keep the mud from jamming my tires. Most of the time I could get about 8 feet downhill until my front tire locked up. This was a great time to test my equipment though.
My ride was only about 10miles but I as able to get a peek at most of the parks trails. It would be a fun place to connect some of the single track loops though the park if you know it well enough. Maybe when I bring someone with a GPS we can add it to Geoladders? Keep an eye out for that route soon.
