  • Idaho Springs hard enduro

    SOMEWHERE IN IDAHO SPRINGS

    This a trail ride but will be very technical. We ride the most difficult lines and spend time at playgrounds. Log hopping, rock hopping, rock gardens, and very slow in control riding. You must enjoy difficult lines and difficult obstacles. Again, this is a slow technical hard endurance ride, objective heart rate elevated the entire time 😀 I will be parked at the ranger station near the pin. If you want my mobile send me a dm please. Let us try and roll out by 10:15 or so.
