Bikepacking the Kokopelli Trail

Bikepacking the Kokopelli Trail

Last Fall I started a “To Do List” and one of the first things on it was to bikepack the Kokopelli Trail.  Haven ridden at both ends of the trail I was curious to know what laid in between.  The Kokopelli Trail is 139 miles long and travels from Loma, CO and Moab, UT.  It consists of mainly dirt roads and old […]

Bears, Singletrack, and Pavement

A while back I wrote this on Facebook, “Every year I say I’m going to ride less and do more hiking, fishing or trail running, anything but riding.” So can someone explain why two out of the last three weeks I have ridden over 200 miles, climbed 25,000+, and been in the saddle more than 20 hours? Maybe the shirt […]
