A group of 8 of us rode the T or C area last week end. First day we rode up Monticello Canyon from Exit 89 off of I-25. We did Burma Rd for the first time and loved it. We found a great ~17 mile long jeep trail loop north of Red Rock Rd and a few miles west of I-25. It was all on marked forest roads. Next day we did Palomas Gap. We always ride in on the east side of the river from NM 51. This is a really fun ride. We rode the east side again on this trip. But just for grins we thought we would check out the place where others cross the Rio Grande south of town. It looks like it has just been dredged and it looked uncrossable to all of us. There was a huge pile of gravel there presumably from the dredging. And the crossing looked nothing like pictures I have seen. There was no island in the middle. We did the gap and found a road out that avoids the washed out place. Went up to the Radio Towers and took the jeep trail south that heads towards Apache Gap. This was very steep with ledges and was all a couple of our group could handle. We then cruised up to 51 on good graded roads and came back to T or C. Some of us got a little wasted at the bowling alley behind the Oasis Saturday night. I didn't take any pics, but others did including lots of video and they may post them here. BTW This was actually a preride for a fund raising ride to support Blackfeather/NMOHVA trail preservation efforts. The fund raising ride is tentatively scheduled for late October. That ride will include a lot more loops including some in the mountains that we couldn't due because of snow this time.
