Winter Park or Bust!

This Sunday is our 2nd Annual Eldora to Winter Park to Eldora ride.  All in 1 day.  Yep, it's a long one.  Expect about 12 hours.  We're meeting in Lyons at 6am Sunday 9/2 and driving to Eldora.  Hope to be meeting at Eldora around 7am.

We did it last year for the first time ever.  Here's a writeup:

We hope to see some of your smiling faces out there!

Crosier Mountain Monday!

I was fortunate enough to escape to Crosier Mountain today.  I haven't ridden Crosier in a couple of years.  It did not dissapoint (never does)

I started at the private ex-youth hostel known as H bar G.  It's private and marked private everywhere but they are ok with bike and hike traffic as long as you follow the rules.  Keep the gate closed and be on your way to some of the best, most scenic, and toughest singletracks around.  Crosier Mountain.

3 days in Keystone Day 1

Thanks to my awesome wife, we were able to stay in Keystone for 2 nights and 3 days this past weekend!  Ride plans?  Definitely.  Day one was Saturday, which was "my day."  All day.  Yes.  Bike of choice?  My Intense Carbine.  Carbon, light, stiff, super responsive, and 6" of buttery suspension in the back.  And a great climber.  The Carbine is probably my favorite bike of all time and an excellent all arounder.  I couldn't think of a better companion on a journey of this magnitude.  Epic trails and epic adventure were calling my name.

Tues Ride Aug 14 Trailwork!

This Tuesday, August 14, will be our last Tuesday trailwork of the season.  We'll be working at the very top of Antelope Trail at Hall.  The goal is to funnify the upper section of crappy road.  Hope some of you can make it out!  We'll be riding Lyons Geto Singletrack afterwards before beers at OB.  Bring your lights!

Pssst, if you need lights, our Niterider preseason just arrived!

Tuesday Ride 8/7

Tuesday Nite Ride this week, we're cooking out! NO post ride OB. We'll be doing a short-ish loop in Johnny Park and will cook out in JP afterwards. Dave B is bringing a grill and I'll bring a camp stove. That's about all we have planned. Looks like we'll need food and beer, too. Who's in!?
