Outstanding Mountain Biking within Easy Reach of the Springs

Dan Martin

Part 1:  Mike Haftel and Dan Martin on Mt. Herman Rd. Sept. 8
Dan Martin is on his bicycle with Pikes Peak just visible in the background.


Here is Mike at a humongous granite outcropping.  We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather!


Part 2: Sam Pedregon and Dan Martin on Phantom Canyon Rd. Aug. 15
Here are photos of Sam Pedregon and I going down Phantom Canyon Rd. on August 15. We really lucked out on the weather!
Here are Sam and I at the intersection in Victor. It pretty much was all downhill from here. Point of interest is that the road sign situated just down the road directing us to Rt. 50 is oriented backwards.


 

Here is Sam deep in a canyon.




 

The road clung to one or the other wall of deep canyons, as if resolved to not dip a toe into the cold flowing creek below. We encountered few humans, but noticed some paths that seemed to lead from the road to nowhere. Funny stuff, what?
