Here is a little somethin' somethin' to get you through the long slow winter. A bike accident survivor & brother to a very famous villain. There are quite a few of these episodes, they're filmed in the motherland - Madison, WI.
Here is episode 1
and a little Chocolate Rain to combat the snow.

In the end, it came down to majority vote that the North Heil Trailhead will be located in Bohn Park. I'm sure LaVerne and the Golden Gang and all other NIMBYs or those resistant to change will try to get a petition going or something. We'll see how that goes over. Make sure to read the local paper on Thursday!
Honestly, I think it's great. We've supported a commitment that we've already made to Boulder County. By showing them that we can be a supportive partner, we can now look to the future in good faith and partnership to things like a connector to Rabbit Mt, the Certain Death trail, and trail access to Steamboat Mountain. Good things are on the horizon and this should help with all of that.
Hmm, Tuesday Ride time. It's rain/snowing now so stay tuned. If it's really crappy, or there's lots of snow, we'll keep it local. I'll put more details up tomorrow around 1.

Black and white. Simple as that.
Custom built DT 240 hubs on tubeless Mavic 819 rims.
Completely changing gears, who's up for a trip to the dump?
Ol blue makes a good hauilin' vehicle.
Leverage is our friend. Especially when it comes to old, old, industrial carplet and glue.
Oh, and John's bike is looking pretty blingy lately. Lots of blue highlights, including nipples and Nokon cables. I didn't take closeup pics of the super sweet custom built Hope Pro II hubs and Mavic 819 tubless rims.
I wrapped up the week with a very nice ride. On the roadie no less. I was lucky enough that I had a camera with me when I saw these. It's not often that you see big horn sheep at this low of elevation. At least, not anything that I see often. How many sheep can you see?
I actually like getting out on the road. Especially when there's appealing roads like this.
I stopped at a little pulloff a couple of miles above the narrows. Everything snow in this pic is usually the waters of the S St Vrain.

Mr Redstone himself is having a bout of internet issues so I'm posting to let the rockpile know our tentative plan is to ride Boulder Valley Ranch. Redstoners to meet at the shop at 6:00 or at the BVR trailhead. Single Speed will be my steed for speed(that rhymes & you know it).
Here's a clip for you Dallas Cowboys fans:

The Tuesday Ride is still on. Bring your lights and your SS. We'll be doing the LGS (Lyons Ghetto Singletrack) ride. Don't know if it's worth driving from afar, but if riding dirt roads and bike paths around town is your cup o tea, come on out. 6pm.
Dan emailed me this. "FYI. The Cyclocross State Championships are airing on CET (channel 105 on Comcast in Longmont) at various days/times throughout the month. Next airing is tonight at 7:00http://onsight-media.com/blog1/2008/02/03/update-colorado-cyclocross-championships-videos/CET Schedule links at the bottom of the following link: http://www.comcast.com/cet/"
February Sale, too!

Headed up to the Fraser this weekend for a little get away time. Didn't want to mess with the resort and all the big bucks, so I packed the xc skis. I wanted to hit the Creekside/Flume loop, but that whole area is closed for pine beetle removal. What I got instead was climbing up the backside of Tippery. I've never played on the xc trails there in the winter, and now I can't wait to go back. I will, however, wait for this fresh blister to heal.
