I had a blast in Moab the other day. I only got to ride 8 miles, but it was enough to remind me how much I love that place.

These pics are from Zoltar and Houdini in the Klonzo trail system. Great intermediate slickrock trails that don't have much climbing.

I'm thinking of zipping down to outerbike on Friday. I'll be bringing my bike and riding a trail or two there. Is anyone else planning on going to outerbike?

I have to put a plug in for my local coach, Christian Pepper. @rwholbrook's son Harry suggested I take a coaching session from him, and it was worth every penny. If you're looking to improve your biking skills, there's nothing better than a coach. I highly recommend scheduling time with him to improve. You can reach him on instagram @christian.pepper

I don't officially coach yet. I need to get all the insurance stuff and waivers worked out (anyone got any good contaccts for that?) I'd be happy to go on a trail ride with you and offer tips as a buddy, as long as you understand it's not an official coaching session... and I'm not charging money... just two guys riding a trail together, shootting the breeze.

I know christian offers private sessions, though I learn best with a group.

Maybe we should do a group skills night, where we all just practice stuff... you know... as a group of friends!

I've kinda been a slug and I need to ride. I've got a couple hours Thursday night, I'm going to see how far up Yellow Fork I can make it in that time frame while I'm sleep deprived, although if it's still rainy I might just grind gravel in Rose Canyon. I'll be at Eagle Mountain early Saturday morning, that's sandy dirt and always dries out quick. And I'm plotting on some dirt church on Antelope Island this Sunday. I'm always down for company.

I've been toying with doing a shirt company for a couple months... I really liked blipshift, and feel there is a market big enough for MTB'ers - there are already ton's of MTB t-shirt companies, I'm hoping the limited run nature and low cost will help it stand out.

I'll be launching my first design next week, trying to decide between the Red shirt and Gray shirt - any thoughts?

If you have a minute, poke around my website pedaldesigns.com - and give me a follow on Insta or FB!

I have about 15 designs in queue, so I'll probably give it that long to see if it is worth pursuing beyond that.

Let me know if you have any advice!

I like the grey one the blood on the pedal stands out more.
 
Picked up my new ride this week. Rockymountain instinct C50. I have been riding giant Reigns for years. My last one is a 2013 and a 26" wheel. After riding my friends 27.5 plus in moab last week I decided bigger wheels are pretty handy on rocky tech stuff. I demo'd a couple bikes in plus and 29 and settled on a 29 running 2.5 tires as a good compromise. These newer mid travel slack 29ers are sweet. Super smooth on the choppy stuff.

Bring it out to Antelope tomorrow. It's way too much bike for anything out there but the views are hard to beat.

Assuming it's not raining, I plan on heading to the Draper pump track tonight. Anyone's welcome to come. I'm hoping to get up the guts to hit one or two of the jumps on the pro line. I think i have the skills, but I definitely don't have the guts yet.
