Lane Love: Dusty Trail

This photo was submitted to us during our Adventure Cycling photo contest a few months back, and we liked it so much we decided it needed to be featured as a Lane Love.

Having ridden Mt. Diablo’s road a few times I wanted to ride something I wasn’t familiar with, so I went with Mark. Trying to pick up the pace so I won’t get dropped I catch up to the four other riders. Looking back I find out that no one else follows. Not a good sign. We take Shell Ridge to get to Rock City. The ride was fantastic, hot and dusty. Half because of the trail and half because Mark was giving us a proper lesson of eating dust. I forgot the route we went mostly because I was tried, out of shape and tried to keep up with Mark. One route we went was Dusty Trail. Found out that the trail was in a word, dusty. So dusty is fact that I took a really soft fall down one of the trails trying to avoid a biker coming down.

You can read the full ride recap here.
