Cherry Creek Dirt Biking, Dec 2010

It was one of those days that don't come around that often this time of year, if ever. Temps were in the 50's and the sun was bright with no clouds to block it out. Cherry Creek is a somewhat new area to me, being there only once before on a rainy day, and a brand new area for the boys. We pulled into the trees mid morning and unloaded, dressed in jackets and gloves and hit the trail. After a good ride, we made our way back to the truck to start a fire and warm up some lunch. At this point, jackets were no longer needed. The boys rode around "camp" for a while, then we set out again on a long ride that ended up taking us to Little Sahara sand dunes. At this point we turned around to make our way back to the truck and call it a day. The soil was perfect as well with the moisture the area has received, not dusty, but not muddy for the most part. In all we rode over 40 miles, which for the boys on their 110's at a moderate speed is a good day. A quick vid is shown below, with a map of our route below that. It really is amazing how many trails are in this area, zoom in on the map to get a glimpse. We mounted my old go-pro facing backwards for a test. It made some decent footage, but the batteries were shot after about 20 minutes.



It's very easy to get lost here, so a gps is recommended, but if you chose to ride without one, take note of landmarks before you head out so you can find your way back.
