Grand Traverse, Cougar Ridge, Black Mamba, Vail, CO

Good friends Eric Robinson and Patrick Strong joined me on Saturday to ride Vail on one of the last beautiful weekends before the snow hits.

We started with a ride across the Grand Traverse to Cougar Ridge, down into Minturn.

Although a storm was approaching, we got up the Eagle Bahn one more time and bombed down Black Mamba.  It’s such a fun run, full of twists and turns, and we had the additional treat of riding through aspen leaves falling in the increasing wind and rain.
