Summer weather in Fruita is characterized by cool mornings that heat up quickly, afternoons that will melt your brain, and evenings that often are quite nice, especially because it’s not unusual for a big cloud to block the sun as it gets toward evening. Rain showers are very spotty, but can be heavy with rain and lightning in the evenings of July and August.
It's SUMMER! The crowds have left and the trails are hard in the middle, dusty on the edges, and riding fast!
Afternoons are hotter then the surface of the Sun, but mornings and evenings are quite nice. Plan your rides for those time slots and drink lots of water!
