It is always fun to catch Max & Zorro in a "discussion" as we fly along the trails.
I always wonder what they are saying, although I think I know...
"Hey little bro - how fast do you want to go?" says Max glancing at his brother during
a dead sprint. "I'm game - pedal to the metal!" responds always-up-to-the-challenge Zorro.

We were pleasantly surprised to be the first tracks on both the Sally Barber and French Gulch trails today. We are entering a very busy weekend & laying fresh tracks on two popular trails was a welcome surprise!

Laying fresh tracks along the Sally Barber Mine Trail.
Laying fresh tracks along the French Gulch Trail.

The French Gulch section of the outing was an "out & back", so we had our out tracks to sprint along on the way back. Here is a fun video of us gliding along French Gulch until we reach the winter gate. You might think I am crazy to approach the gate with any speed; but I have complete confidence in my partners to take the right path next to the gate instead of going under.

After touring Sally Barber and French Gulch, we still wanted more. So we started down French Gulch Road for a final cool down leg to the outing.
Getting some waves & wows from the family stopping to watch the Siberians fly by with
the strange guy on skis behind them.

I think Max approved of today's outing. What do you think?
"YES! I do approve! I had a GREAT time!" exclaims happy Max at the end of the day's outing.

A fun & fast 7.9 mile outing with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 90 days on the trails covering 766 miles with 88,550 feet of elevation climbed.
