This email is coming to you from the inside of the Victor ID public library, where we’ve been hanging out every work day since getting to this area. This has been great considering our camping location has very little service (but views of the Tetons).
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week…
Coolest mountain bike video yet –
Riding the Hard Money trail outside of Black Hawk Colorado
There are no crashes in this one, but it’s full of high speed riding. Steep berms, decent drops, and lots of jumps! I couldn’t help but post the whole video without edits.
Here’s our Trail Forks info.
Great coffee and tasty treats –
Rise Coffee House in Driggs ID
They have some GREAT, very smooth cold brew! I like my cold brew smooth :-).
It’s also a nice place to open a computer and get a cheat day breakfast or pastry.
Great little bike shop (and small world) –
Fitzgerald’s Bikes in Victor ID
We had an awesome small world interaction at this shop where we met the mechanic and found out that he works winters in Sedona at the shop where I bought my bike, and had actually worked on my bike last year.
I ended up going into this shop four times during our nine days in the area (to get several things done), and my bike is riding better than ever! The mechanic even fixed a bent derailleur that I’ve been having trouble with since riding at Curt Gowdy State Park (from the fall).
That’s what I have for you this week. If you need anything at all, please let me know!
