Video: Lenosky on the Horsethief Bench climb

Climbing the iconic descent in Fruita, CO in the real and virtual world


One of my long-standing goals is to ride Horsethief Bench from the bottom to the top in an uncut unedited version. This trail was pretty gnarly to descend on my hardtail, it’s even more difficult going up!! Follow along as I check out this legendary trail and try to see if I can CLIMB back up to it!!

Horsethief Bench is one of the most popular descents in Colorado. For 99 percent of riders, it’s a well earned Hike a Bike. I’ve watched lots of videos of people riding it, so I decided to give it a try… on my Reeb Dikyelous2 hardtail. Come along for a fun day with my buddies!
