    I’m currently on a cross country trip hitting as many trails as we can along the way. Yesterday we rode Cinnamon Pass but hit a patch of weather on our way up. The bike performed exceptionally well, even heavily loaded. There were just a few sections where the added weight made it a challenge.

    Also, I know cinnamon pass isn’t considered challenging to many, but I’m just a Midwest boy who rides Midwest trails. This was my first chance to test my aptitude in the mountains and I’m ecstatic with how I fared.

    I drove Cinnamon in my Jeep Cherokee and I'm not sure there were ten consecutive seconds when I wasn't frightened, and that was in dry conditions.
