When Alexander, The Singletrack Sampler, pitched the idea of skipping the IMBA Epic Monarch Crest ride I was pretty skeptical. That is THE ride in Salida. That’s the ride that keep the shuttle companies running. But he knew better, and I’m so glad I took his advice. We ended up doing two shuttles on this epic day. The first was a rowdy ride down Green’s.
