July 22, Winthrop - Bear Mountain & Middle Fork Figure 8

Third day of riding. New ride for us.  Climbed forest roads and came down on Bear Mountain Trail.  They ran a race on the first half earlier in the year, so it was a little beat up.  The next half of the downhill was quite nice.  Settled in for another road climb to the Middle Fork Trail.  The first half mile saw the once narrow single track turned into quad tracks.  Fortunately, at .6 miles, the trail contoured around a hill, and the quads had to turn around.  After that, we had narrow, primitive single track.  Nice, sweet descent.  Another perfect day with the weather in the 70's.  15.5 miles.
