Colorado Trail Summer 2014: An invitation (X-Post from Vacations)
Had a few people back out due to injury or scheduling conflicts, so still looking for a few more riders and/or willing drivers (paid + lots of riding potential) for this trip the last week of August (23rd - 29/30th). Being as I live in the Bay Area and at least 2 other riders are from here as well, thought I'd see if I could find any other like-minded folks that want to join us; that and the "Vacations/Destinations forum doesn't get viewed much...
With a life event of my own, (a new baby) we're taking 2 years to finish this instead of the 13 day trip originally planned, so we'll be riding 7, maybe 8 days and finishing near Gunnison. Hopefully next year we can get out and finish off the trail to Durango.
Check out the trip details on the linked thread and PM me if you are interested or want more details/info.
Colorado Trail Summer 2014: An invitation
We have a full trip but still need a driver for the 2nd shuttle. If you'd like to spend a week in the Colorado high country, camping under the stars, soaking in hot springs, and riding miles of exceptional single track, while also getting paid then send me a PM ASAP.
This ride will start on Friday the 22nd of August and will wrap up on the 30th with a travel day on either side. Since a bunch of us are heading out from Norcal, including our other driver, thought I'd see if anyone else out here would want to join us.
Edit: sorry for the stupid links, I "forgot" that MTBR is too complicated for a cut and paste x-post. Mods, might as well delete this...
Back from the trip, with some great memories, some sore body parts, and some bike parts that need replacement. 11 days of riding, 200+ miles of high altitude riding, +/- 30,000 feet of climbing, and a mix of sun, rain, hail, snow, and booze. As I'm too beat for a full TR, here's a few select images:

Pics that work!
Let's try this again...
11 days of riding, 200+ miles of high altitude riding, +/- 30,000 feet of climbing, a mix of sun, rain, hail, snow, and booze, deer, elk, moose, bobcat, pika, marmot, and one very calm black bear.
Some more great shots, this time from fellow rider and one of our drivers, Zack C, and fellow rider Nate C.

I don't like using the word "epic", but I cannot think of anything else.
Starry Skies, wow! Good work Hunter!
Zack C. gets the credit for all the stellar (pun intended) shots. He's the master; up late every night, up early every morning, and he still managed to drive shuttle and ride everyday!
