    Cabezon dual sport ride

    If anyone is looking for a fun day ride from Albuquerque head out to Cabezon peak! take 550 north past San Ysidro to Cabezon-San Luis exit take the road till it turns to dirt you will see Cabezon peak to your left you can take dirt roads around the peak and head back on pipeline road (dirt) this will take you out to Cabezon road which is past San Ysidro on the Albuquerque side. A great ride I was on my Triumph Tiger we also had a V-Strom 650 and a KLR 650 a great day ride !!!!

    ACL & Miniscus Tear

    Hi thought all the info was good. I missed a pole vault pit from 17' tore my ACLU but never had surgery. I was told that as long as I could do everything I wanted not to get it fixed. So I ski Mt Bike and do every thing I want I have a really good knee brace that holds everything together. as for rehab, my degree is in exercise physiology, heres the best things up hill walking or running, leg extensions, leg curls, wall sits, and lots of stretching, flexability will keep you from re injuring your knee. most surgeries on the knee leave it as good as new! Hope this helps Take care Steve

    Hey Mike The northern mountains usually have snow above 7000' by that time maybe around Soccorro or south 14 may be better, If I can help let me know, also there are some good trails around Madrid. Have Fun Steve
