    Lost rider in Colorado Springs

    Jesse's wife is missing:

    Search continues for 36-year-old cyclist who went missing Sunday

    I'm trying to find out if SAR needs riders, and where we should go. Anyone know who might be coordinating the search? I imagine that a bunch of us could be very helpful at the moment, especially if someone can help us search in an organized fashion.

    I'll post more if I hear anything.

    S&R is asking people not to head out there. Too many people will confuse their trackers and dogs. Hard to sit and wait, but it's probably best. I'm going to call them in the morning to see if they have changed their minds.

    Wow, crazy. She must have crashed and what... broke a leg or hip or something? Tough lady for making it through the night.

    I'm glad they found her alive and in one piece... mostly.

    Glad she made it out okay.

    I do a lot of solo trips in unpopulated areas. I started carrying a Delorme InReach in case things go badly wrong.
    Safe riding,

    Glad she was found and is okay. I always have my Garmin GPS with me so I can back track when needed.
