    B, did you get that new fork?
    I know of a few bars open this weekend, but not many trails.

    Trail Feedback

    Went around the airforce Falcon trail today and only thing I can say is it took 3.5 hrs to do an hour and half ride and did not finish it since there was way too much snow to ride the trail. Best guess is to pick a trail that gets heavy foot traffic and don't try to do anything over 8500 as the snow is not melting. Most trails are out of commision for atleast another two weeks for any regular use.

    Dam,
    Bikes are FUN

    Mount Herman Hike? Ok, it is not biking, but it is a workout and you get to overlook all of Southern Colorado at about 9063.251 ft. It is typically 30-35 degrees for most of the hike and with the snow? who knows?


    Saturday morning I will be hiking and I will be carrying my skis on the way up. It usually takes about 1.5 hours to the top keeping a steady pace. There are two steep pitches through forested northern slopes that look particularly inviting...


    I believe Joe and rreoder are going also...

    There are very few rocks in the areas I will be skiing. If anything just fallen trees. If you keep the tips up you are golden. Kinda like that picture.

    I always ski on rock skis. They all just seem to end as rock skis...

    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    Yep, had it for a few weeks. And after some dumb ordering by yours truly, I finally have the brake adapter too. 3 weeks later, and i want to ride the thing!

    And a new chain for the OnOne. We'll see how this one holds up since I blew apart the previous chain with my massive power.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Hall still has a pretty decent amount of snow on it, and it's crusty as hell. Just got back from going up to the bench and back; so crusy I bagged doing the rest.

    I'd avoid it all weekend, and maybe even a few days after that even.

    I'll echo the geek's question: what's Palmer like?

    Palmer is out unless you are there before the temperature hits 32 degrees which I'm guessing will happen about 8:30am tomorrow. We got about 4" of snow between the two storms last week and it isn't melting very quickly.

    I might ride Cap'n Jacks on Sunday mid-day if anyone is intersted.

    Just guessing here, but if you're talking Palmer Park, its probably muddy. I live like 5 minutes from the trail head and with the amount of snow we had its going to be messy for several more days. Probably rideable in the early morning when stuff is still frozen, but with temps today and tommorrow in the 60s according to the weather man its going to be a sloppy mess.

    4"??? We got a foot on the north side, I know parts of town get less than others depending on the storm but Palmer must of gotten more than that.

    We were out of town last weekend so I didn't see the snow until Monday morning. By then, it looked like about 4", but I guess that is after it set up and melted a little. Regardless, not much of the snow has melted since Monday so Palmer is definitely out this weekend.

    Maybe I'll just go shopping... all... weekend... long.

    Or not.

    I'll probably just road/cross it to the cross race tomorrow.

    If you don't mind the drive... I was just in Moab on Thur and Fri and the trails are in great shape! A little snow but not bad at all, well worth the trip.

    Just rode up in Cheyene Canyon today and it wasn't to bad. My buddy and I rode up the chutes, hopped on Columbine and then came back down the chutes and it wasn't to bad. Ran into DHpimp in the parking lot and he said that Buckhorn was in good shape. However, another rider that we ran across said that Captain Jacks had to much snow and ice. Didn't check it out personally though so who knows, I would trust DHpimp though. The chutes were a little sketchy in a couple of corners on the way down, but totally rideable. Just have to slow down a little bit.
