    I noticed (off your Embry Riddle site) that Ridgeback is near Cordes Junction. Where is it, and how hard is it?

    Also I noticed the Desoto mine run. Where exactly is it? and how hard is it?

    Do you have any other good trail to report on there in the Bradshaw's Fred. Don't hold out we need to know all the cool runs to go on up in your neck of the woods.

    How hard is Ridgeback? The trail isn't that hard with lockers and 33s, assuming you take the easy/ bypass lines. If you take the hard way, let's put it this way, there is a section that is impossible without at least 42s (believe me, I tried. Tye didn't even attempt it). The rocks are extremely slick, and you can't get a line, it picks your lines for you. As an example, I hung a rock slider on a 4' boulder, and pivoted 90 degress forwards and backwards 4 times before I got off of it /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif.

    Oh, don't worry I won't hold out /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif, You gotta come up and wheel with us to see where the good stuff is at /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
