Said in my post yesterday that the Duthie boardwalk is such a grand entrance, it’s like riding up to a mountain bike cathedral. Once inside the park, I immersed myself in the scene. It’s one I hadn’t been a part of for decades. The wheels are bigger, bikes better, suspensions taller, but what I noticed the most was more families, women, and girls. The vibe was like Cross races are now, but without all the NC-17 party racing.

I’m covering dirt again for several reasons and one of them is that I want to ride without cars harshing my buzz. More photos from Duthie are lightboxed on G+ and Flickr.

You read my mind!  I was just wondering if it’s a place I could take my teenager or even if I could do it myself?

Thanks for covering that base for me!

Is it practical for true cross bike?  (no suspension…)

Jack,

Yes it is and Bryanwi—the bootcamp trail is rideable with a cross bike yes. Not the other ones, no.
