    Hawes Sat 2/24

    Join me and others for a Sat morning ride out at Hawes. Meet at 9AM behind the Walgreen's at Thomas and Power. Plan is to do the usual outer loop counterclockwise, adding in Twisted Sister/Wild Horse to the pit and back - about 20 miles total. Plenty of options for bailouts and shorter (or longer) rides.

    If you are not familiar with the trails, print up Epicrider's map:

    Great to see everyone...its been a while for me. Had a blast, I thought it was going to be real cold but it turned out to be perfect. Props to Kathleen who obviously has been training, ALOT, pulling really strong on the climbs and sporting a new physique to boot ....
    I'll post up some ride pics once I get a chance....

    Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.

    I just got back home... what a BEAUTIFUL day!!! Brett and BrianC and I finished off the whole ride to the pit and back, no problems. Highlight of the ride was a pack of wild horses on Wild Horse Trail. Sorry everyone else had to cut it short but it was great seeing Mark again and meeting you Rob. As always, friends Scott and Joanie are a joy to ride with and then there was my fav tattoo boy Chris.

    Thanks for the compliments Mark I am having so much fun now keeping up (sort of) with some of you guys on the trails. Eating right and dropping a few lbs is bringing out the rider in me that I'd always hoped to be.

    Damn I should have checked the board. Some of us did this exact ride last weekend and it was great, I would love to do it again.. Even though the last long climb to the pits is a grind on the SS. Oh well, maybe next time...

    Hawes...Alta...Hawes...Alta...so many choices!

    I guess I'll see how I'm feeling in the morning. I JUST got the hardtail dialed back in after a complete drivetrain replacement, so that's feeling tasty after hauling around the big 6.6...grr.

    I'll probably be at one or the other rides. My future mother-in-law is coming up in the morning, so I'm looking for reasons to get out of the house!

    Huh?

    You cant tell from the pictures, but I really did have fun riding with ya'll yesterday.
    Aside from the obvious physical pain, it was a great morning.

    Ride carefully on Hawes 3/3 Saturday

    There is a trail maintenance scheduled with MBAA on some of the trails on Hawes this Saturday, 3/3 so be mindful of workers when shredding there. Thanks

    ????????

    SMM,

    I'm pretty sure that TM Day is on 3/3 - not 3/1 as per:

    Hawes Loop Trail Day March 3rd

    No?

    youze right

    Yah, your righton. I was looking at the 2014 calendar (by mistake) when I said that. Most of you will be in motorized wheel chairs by then while I shred the trails...Thanks for the correction. You can be my manager now. The correcting wife has already gone walkabout so I can ride more...
