What can I say, My original plan was to go to Vegas after work Friday, attend a best good buddy's 40th Birthday, then go home on Saturday morning. Luckily I checked DT about trails in Las Vegas since all I know about Sin City is Gambling and Buffets. Ended up bringing my bike along.

It was around 11am Saturday, October 23. Arrived at Boulder City, looked around All Mountain Cyclery, then headed out to Bootleg Canyon Mountain Bike Park. The conditions couldn't be better. Temps during the ride was between 66-69 degrees. It had rained a day or two earlier and the trails were packed(not with people). It was awesome. :D

We started out at Girl Scout Trail

Then headed to Caldera Trail. That's my buddy "Mapatuy" in front of me. You can see the Las Vegas Strip from Caldera Trail.

He was pointing out that the trails are not for Motor Cycles :)

My couple attempts at Baja pics :thumbsup:

Customary bike Pron shots

After Caldera, we went up Boy Scout, then headed back and took West Leg(the upper trail).

Don't you just hate it when you get to a point where there were 4 different routes you can take? :D

From Mother's Trail, we went to IMBA, Par None, and POW. No more pics were taken because it was waay to fun to stop, Fast and Flowy.

We only rode about 4 hours. At least we covered the entire West Side of the Bike Park.
:D
Awesome time.

Thanks DT for the Recommendations.

You went to Vegas for a Party and was up and ready to ride at 11am the next day? Wow! That's dedication my friend, looks like fun.

We should get the powered by Humans sign and post them here in San Diego too. It was great, we should have a mountain bike park like that too.

Nice report Michael along with real nice pictures and I hope Mar is allright after that jump. He appears to be somehow agitated, am I right? :lol:
