    Betasso ride 11/18

    There's been some talk of an off-peak hours ride at Betasso, so here's the thread. I suggest we hit Betasso next thursday the 18th, after work, around 5:15-5:30. Meet somewhere in Boulder, head up for a lap and head back down.

    Extra credit for Kirk, he's bringing beverage for all!
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    You've got my interest, although I damn near went off a cliff out there in the daylight the other day. This switching directions stuff is really messing with my head (trail now going counter-clockwise).

    It's easy! Just following the person in front of you.

    (Note to self, don't follow Jdub)

    heh....As slow as I am, unless you are riding a 44x22 singlespeed uphill, I doubt anyone will be following me.

    See that's not exactly how it's supposed to work. Actually advertising that I'm showing up with beer might bring a few more loose screws out of the closet...instead of just the truly nar-nar's showing up.

    Plus thursday was supposed to be my rest day before my big trip...If you go Wed. I could probably swing it.
    The more out of shape you are, the steeper the hill looks.

    Hi Guys:

    As much as I like bein' at outlaw as much as the next old fart, I wish you guys wouldn't ride at Betasso when it's closed. The county is actually watching for that, and future trail access may depend on how well we cooperate with this, er, closure (not that I like it).

    At the very least, please don't post publically what you're doing!

    Hey Leeman, check me on this. The Betasso link is still open to bikes any day of the week right? Anyways, just because one says Betasso, doesn't necessarily mean a specific trail so much as a region.

    Relax my mountain biking brother, I would never do anything to harm mountain biking...and if I were to, I certianly would so under cover of darkness.

    P.S. Please don't bump threads to the top, if you feel they are detrimental to mountain biking. It just ensures more people will see it and is likely to spark an arguement which means even more people see it.

    I guess I bumped the thread up by replying? I guess you're saying don't reply in cases like this? (Perhaps PM?) Not sure what you're suggesting here, ...

    And yes, of course, the connector is open at all times (as far as I know).

    Thanks for understanding my concern and not taking it the wrong way. Enjoy
    your ride! :-)

    Looks like Wednesday works better for me for an off peak hours ride. I'm available after 4:30, but I'm willing to wait around for an hour or so if more folks can make it.

    Perhaps we could just roll up to the foothills trail etc. Or whatever.

    Riding the preserve is not what I had in mind. It's supposed to rain anyway - we need something far dirtier.
