    I'll bet they are pretty wet...do yourself and your trails a favor and give it a day.

    Completely dry here in love-land. Rained last night but, things tend to dry out in hours up here.
    Rode Ginny. Chalk up another ho-hum (awesome) ride.

    It positively POURED buckets down here in SW Littleton. I'd expect the foothills are pretty wet today.

    past

    Aspen Park and Conifer we had very little rain last night, in fact the clouds didn't start until Indian Hills and below, so I thoght maybe someone had ventured out near LOTB or Evergreen etc. Guess I'll head to Buff Creek.

    Climbed a very dusty Apex and descended an equally dry Chimney Gulch. The most water I saw on today's ride was in my camelbak.

    Rode Devil's Backbone in Loveland and it was perfect. I was suprised, because I live in Longmont and we got poured on.

    It rained last night here in Golden. However, the trails have dried out quickly. The trail next to my house is ready to go.

    Rode Lair O' The Bear this moring. Finished right before the rain started. First of, despite being short (we finished the out and back in about an hour), LOTB has been added to my All Time Top 5 Front Range Rides list. Secondly, the trail was in perfect shape. I'm sure it's fine even with the shower that passed through this morning.

    Here's a little Ginny Trail vid I assembled from yesterday's ride. It's pretty hack, I admit... but it does show conditions pretty well. The descent was post light rain which was just enough to knock the dust down but not too much to make a mess.

    favorites too. To extend the mileage on the out and back, I like to conitnue on to Falcon and do a Parmalee loop, then head back. It adds quite a bit of vert as well. I don't really like doing the Falcon > LOTB loop thing as the road descent to Morrison is just not a place I want to be on my bike.

    I rode a bit of Heil today

    Wonderful as usual and mid-season dry. Here's a few pics of that legendary Heil Bike Path Smooth trail. Take your first-timer girlfriend, she'll love you forever!

    You know it's funny...my girlfriend actually prefers Heil to Hall. It must be the rock garden that scares her.
    I'm here for the downhill

    got back on the horse after a two week R&R. Rode down to gross res. Collarbone is a little sore but nothing that will keep me out of commission. Fruita here I come.

    It takes four minutes to get hard.
    Only two minutes to get soft.

    Yes ! Wet, what wet ?

    Rode from town to Lory and the Timber Trail. It's spring and all the Pulsatilla are blooming.



    The Bluebirds are thick as well.



    Nuthatches are boring new holes for nests in the dark timber.




    Crest the hill and it's all downhill from there.
