We just had an amazing Anniversary trip to Fruita, CO for three days of mountain biking.

We stayed at the Mulberry Cottage, a wonderful B&B that took great care of us. The delicious breakfasts and oatmeal craisin cookies gave us plenty of energy for the trails. We will definitely be back!

The local bike shop, Over The Edge Sports hooked us up with some high end rental bikes and gave us directions to the best trails.

We did all of our riding over by the Kokopelli trailhead:
Rustler's Loop - great warm-up, fast and fun!
Mary's Loop - awesome views from the canyon rim trail
Horsethief Bench - sick drop in followed by epic single track and slick rock
Steve's Loop/Handcuffs - awesome loop! single track, some fast & some technical
Lion's Loop & Troy Built - tough, pretty technical trail with mega exposure on the left side. you don't want to mess up a technical section and fall to the left!

Next time we'll do a combo trip of Fruita and Moab (only 1.5hrs away)
The Grand Junction airport is only 15 minutes from Fruita so it's a pretty easy trip.

Also, there's plenty of good Mexican food in Fruita...especially Los Gilberto' and tasty!

Check it out!
