Boulder spring break
i'll be up there from 17th-20th
how's the riding mid march
and what are some good trails local to boulder pref a little f/r type trails
also looking for a day long ride as well with lots of scenery
keystone is to far
It is still winter here. High stuff is still under snow and they are still skiing at Keystone. This time of year, all day rides with lots of scenery are not easy to find, unless you hook some things together. On the north front range, you might try a combination of Devil's Backbone, Blue Sky, Coyote Ridge, and Bobcat Ridge, with some pavement connectors. Plan 45 minutes drive from Boulder.
winter whats that lol
ok anything around the Denver area within an hour ?
thanks for the info
Tech stuff on Dakota Ridge. Nice loop with Mathews Winters / Red Rocks. This is on the west edge of Denver.
The area I mentioned above (Devil's Backbone, Blue Sky, Coyote Ridge, etc) in Fort Collins / Loveland would allow for several lengthy loops and is dry right now. Mostly XC with some techy stuff at DBB. See this thread for front range conditions on many of the trails you are most likely to be able to ride:
Conditions: Hall, Bobcat, Backbon, Coyote, Maxwell, Horsetooth...
BTW don't tell people here ( CO ) that your from TX OK?
just live in texas
thanks for the info guys
I'd hit Hall Ranch in Lyons, about 20-30 minutes from Boulder. No free-riding really, but some pretty fast fun technical stuff. I'd consider the lower section up to the bench light to moderate AM riding with some fast XC stuff after that.
Dakota Ridge is more of the same and alot of fun. A little more challenging but pretty comparable.
Go to Sedona, AZ. if you aren't locked into Boulder. CO just ain't happening now.
well me and my gf are headed up there to check out the school
the reason for going to boulder
there is some XC now
if it dries out enough, but this time of year is not the best for mtb'ing. We get a lot of snow in March. It may snow here in Boulder 2 times this week. Snowed sunday, supposed to snow again wednesday. Its like that until end of April.
so wheres a good place to rent ski equipment ?
The weather in CO changes soo much you just never know what it'll be like when you get here it was 74 on sat and snowed that night and in the 30's on sunday There is snow today wed the 5th and by the week end it will probably make it to the 50's. in the past month I have ridden on Hall Ranch, Devils Back Bone, and Rabbit Mountain. There was some snow on Rabbit Mountain last time I rode.
Just keep an eye on the weather.

If anyone needs the help of a prototype/custom machinist let me know.
i'll be bringing my bullit up with me
hows the street riding i might bring my P.1 as well
Back in the day that section was considered "mountain biking", I guess I was AM before AM, sweet!
