    To brave or not to brave? Night ride

    So the question is do we want to brave to cold and make a night ride this week? If so what do people feel like riding?

    Yes, but no. I would be down for a ride, but Ackley is getting her shots on Wednesday and I have been requested to stay home and help deal with a pissed off baby.

    Wednesday looks like the warmest day this week so you have that going for you.. I am out though, my wife is tutoring a kid so I am on baby duty every night this week. I hope you guys can get out. I'll be plenty warm on the couch playing video games.

    Kristian, the baby shots aren't too bad. It is pretty bad to see them look at you and scream as they get poked but then when it is over they calm down and are usually so tired they sleep all day. Or maybe I have just been very lucky.

    Good to hear you're getting the shots though. I read last week that Colorado is up there on the list of states where people are refusing to get the shots.

    How much snow?

    I know where I live a snow shoe event could happen as the north end of town got much more snow. If we ride where do you think will be in ride able conditions, I am up for getting out of the house and braving the cold

    Dam,
    Bikes are FUN

    I'm a maybe this week, not much snow down here Joe. Got your text yesterday but Barb and I were already at the Mule trailhead at MH, we just used the spikes tho, not enough snow maybe 6" but def more up top. Maybe with yesterdays snow there's enough now but we only got an inch here.

    I think UTE would be fun.

    Have not been there in a long time, if it gets warm enough we can play in the mud.

    Who's in

    It really doesn't matter to me where we go. I just thought if it got too cold we could make a faster exit by staying lower.
    But really I'm down for whatever.

    Ute didn't get much snow. Only an inch or so in my front yard... which is basically Ute.

    Well looks like 4 of us so far. I also dont care where. Someone make the call. I'm game for whatever.

    Side note, if anyone has checked jacks since the snowing ( Kjbike) can you let us know trail conditions in the canyon if we choose that.

    Lower Canon/Stratton is good to go; already enough foot traffic to pack in fun paths and even a little dirt showing. I can get out earlier Wed and ride higher for recon. Still have Wed night clients so no ride for me in the dark other than commuting. If over here is the call there is a warm house to come back to at the end and I have 2 very bright lights I'm happy to lend.

    Sort of. My g/f She-ra has ridden with most in this group, but the weeknight rides have never fit her schedule. If it ends up being the Canon tomorrow the ride will likely start and finish at our place and although we can't go (kids) you can meet another local mtb girl who is always looking for company.

    Pdubs wants Jack's, so lets do it!

    Meet at the bottom of Jacks parking lot off of gold camp road at 6pm.
    It's gonna be cold so bring your warm stuff, and leave the wine at home!
    Everyone, don't forget to fill your whiskey flask's we'll need it.

    I think it is time for me to pull my I'm scared card. I vote stick with the meeting at the bottom of jacks parking lot that shortbus brought up. That way when I get cold and want to warm up, I don't have to ride all the way down the road frozen.

    Guys, be brave and not scurd!

    Its all about the layers...

    Have your 40 - 30 deg layers, 30 - 20 deg, and 20 below layers. Takes a little experimenting but if you can survive the first 15 minutes of the ride and have the right clothes on you will be warm and toasty. Until it comes to beer thirty and you loose all your body heat!
