You will either love or hate this out-and-back trail called the Pipe Dream. It is located in the middle of the city behind the Chilly Pepper Bike Shop, is not particularly long and is almost flat for about seven kilometers along the slope.What makes this trail - at least for me - so interesting is the "No Dab Challenge". The rules are described in detail on a sign at the trail entrance. If you can manage not to set foot on the ground a single time all the way to the Hidden Valley Trailhead, then you're half the battle. If you manage to do that again on the way back, then you've completely mastered the challenge. Congratulations, not many can do that.All features can be driven individually when viewed individually. The trail builders have always built in surprises so that it never gets boring. Full concentration is required every second.Oh yes, if someone comes towards you, you can support yourself with your hand on the rock and the challenge continues. But it doesn't matter whether you put your foot down or not, the trail is just fun. Again and again you will encounter technical driving challenges and very tight corners. If you do the tour in the late afternoon or in the evening, you will be in the cool shade the whole time.
