Riding by Red Tarn

I had been eyeing up this descent for some time. From the ridge above, from the mines across the valley and often enough on the map. The gradient looked perfect and the track a mix of pitched slabs and flowing singletrack. The problem is its popularity - taking a bike here would be pointless on most weekends. On this night, I had the place to myself.Just the birds and the sound of snow melt running to the tarn below.
The start of a superb run, dropping approximately 700m over 5km and on par with any of the other also excellent descents in the immediate area.
