Nice flow, fast and fun. We went back again today and did a couple more laps, and will likely again tomorrow too. I am just kicking myself for skipping it in previous years... It is definitely a trail worth riding. Nice work out there boys. . Its obviously a well maintained trail.
The West, North, Tech, and Lake loops all have a VERY different feel from the East Loop, though the east loop does have a certain charm, the other loops are much more fun in my opinion. I think so many people associate holdridge with grubers grinder that the other loops don't get ridden as often from any but people more local/familiar with the trail system.
Last year I rode East / Gruber's followed by West. After the plodding turns/grinds of East the flowing, fast, wider sections of West felt like being on a highway. It was a pretty nifty contrast. Holdridge is a really nice trail system.
