After riding 18 Road the day before, Frank & I were primed for some more Fruita/Grand Junction riding. Our GJ friend Ann was to be our guide and she offered to take us to Rabbit Valley. Frank and I had only been to Rabbit Valley once before, on separate occasions. We were eager to check out a new area.
Ann, Frank, and I met up with Ann’s friends, Chrissy and Mike, at the trailhead. Not even ten minutes into the ride, Ann’s bike decided to no longer work. Her chain had wedged itself between her chain ring and her frame. We tried to even take the chain rings off, but they wouldn’t budge. We had to say a sad goodbye to Ann as she began to “gimp” her bike back to the parking lot.
I was posed for pictures, and then along comes Ann! Surprise surprise! Ann’s chain had come unjammed as she bashed her way down a hill while also trying to back pedal. We were happy to have her joining us again 🙂
The Western Rim is a wonderfully scenic ride, in addition to be flowy and fun. It’s certainly worth your time. Thanks for the recommendation and for being our fearless guide Ann! 🙂
