"OVER THE HILL" (and seasoned) TRAIL RIDERS exchange

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the pics Buttegal, very excellent! I have a feeling y'all will be invited out there often. 
I hope so. I've ridden a trail here and there that is as awesome as the ranch's trails, but never so many quality fun trails all in one place. They are not opening memberships to the public, but invited each of us to become members. It's $400 per year. Not bad at all considering what you get, but it's a three hour drive for me. It is so tempting!

I broke my fifth metatarsal in my foot. Sometimes referred to as "dancers fracture". boxer sounds better
That sucks. Foot injuries can sometimes take a long time to heal. Do you have a good story about how you broke it?

My friends chose to ignore the Jones fracture label. Only twelve weeks and one surgery and I was back on my feet. No good story just being too old to play basketball.
Yoko, I've also had a Bennett's fracture, it has a great story that started with "watch this".

And it looks like a fun place to ride.  Not real rough or difficult, but fun.  HA!  At my age those places look better and better.
Pictures can be deceiving. There's plenty of difficult terrain. Some of it was easy, but most of the single track there is for A level riders. It's not McNutt where Pittbull rides, but it's not easy by any means.

Our Ladies Rip N Sip weekend was a blast!!  We rode on a private ranch north of Helena, Montana that his been developed for OHV use by a club.  The club let us ride there and provided guides. Beautiful place, to say the least, and a wonderful group of women.

Around here that is pretty much the norm a 3 hour drive to anywhere that has some decent riding and lots of it but you are out west where it may be easier to find some good trails

I guess I'm spoiled around here. My go to place is only 20 minutes away. It's a full OHV area with tons of trails. There's a lot of trails and smaller areas within 1 to 2 hours. I still haven't ridden all the stuff there is. You guys should plan a trip to Montana. You'd love it!

The best time to come would be between July 15th and September 15th. That's when all the trails are open around Yellowstone. If you're coming to Montana, you gotta hit those trails. There are also some good ones north of Bozeman that will be open by then, too. I would recommend a trip something like this:

1-2 days at Fairmont Hot Springs (posh hotel) with riding close

1-2 days at Pipestone (primitive camping or stay at Homestake Lodge)

1 day ride north of Bozeman (hotel in Bozeman)

2-3 days at Big Sky (primitive camping or ski condo)

Then drive through Yellowstone National Park and possibly Grand Tetons

 

The trails I'm talking about are not well known. You probably won't find much about the actual trails on the internet, but you can Google the place names above and get an idea of the area I'm talking about. I'd love to show you around. Or find a guide to show you some tough stuff.

That is definitely a possibility we are always looking for new places to explore and ride.

As mentioned, we have a house in Buena Vista rented Fri-Mon. Thurs night we have to pick up some one in Colorado Springs so spending the night there.
My question is: would u recommend riding Rampart/Woodland Park Friday on our way to BV or should we haul ass to Salida and ride around there? Planning to do the Rainbow for sure and was hoping for Monarch but that isn’t gonna work.
Three days to ride. What do y’all recommend?

That sounds perfect for me. I am on the SE coastline of TX and need several days of riding to make the trip worthwhile. Anyone wanting to make it THIS summer holler at me. Also i am a hotel/motel guy.

Anybody in here have experience with the ram phone mounts they show 3 ways to attach them and I am wondering which way would be the best just for adventure type riding not hard trails or woods riding.
