Porcupine Rim

Porcupine Rim, originally uploaded by Andy Waterman.

Today I rode with Rob from Rim Tours in Moab on the Porcupine Rim trail. Getting up at 6.30 to get a shuttle up to 9000 feet was painful after last night's adventure on Slickrock, but the minute we started climbing into the mountains I new it was going to be worth it.
The trail started off fast and fun and got gradually more technical towards the bottom. This shot is from the final section of singletrack and it was ridiculously good fun. All in all, I think it took us about four hours with photos, and really, only about 20minutes of that was climbing. Amazing. And yet I'm still totally exhausted. Go figure. That's what bike holidays are all about.
