    C/S big ride this Sunday, 29 Jan

    Got some folks coming to check out lots of our trails. The ride will start at 10am from Stratton OS off of Ridgeway. If we can get some more locals to join who want to ride a good bit or all of the route we will split into 2 groups; folks up front training and the second just enjoying the trails at whatever pace. In other words the A group won't really stop much or wait up and the B group will be more social (the folks in A are all cool, just looking to do some solid training). Below is the tentative ride plan for those who know the area; lots of ways to shorten it.

    Singletracks through Stratton OS up to the Chutes and up the Chutes.
    Down some of Gold Camp Rd, down Stephanies and then up the other bit to Sec 16.
    Up some of Sec 16 to Intemann and then all of Intemann to Crystal Park.
    Down Crystal Park and over to Balanced Rock to climb up Rampart Range Rd.
    Drop a great trail off of Rampart.
    Climb out of above trail to add the loop part of Waldo.
    Back down connector to finish fun trail off of Rampart.
    In to Manitou to hit all the Manitou sections of Intemann.
    Either ride in Red Rocks a bit, then going up to Sec 16 or part of Intemann. Or the other way on all of Intemann.
    After all that some may simple climb Stephanies and GC to finish down the Chutes.
    Some may add a Palmer/Sec 16 lap and/or the back side of High Dr. to hit Jacks.

    The Chutes are in good shape. I've been doing Buckhorn and Jacks lately too; some ice patches but all rideable.

    p-dubs and wafoo - Come on out. You guys know these trails so if you aren't into the training pace thing just rip the good single track and enjoy the silly nice Jan weather. There really isn't much sketchy, make you significantly change your line, ice on this route. The guys coming down to train are a mix of serious amateur and some pro racers training for really long races.

    kchri - If the in depth route description strikes you as "dick waving", sorry. Just trying to get folks together for a big day while giving as much info as I can. If that doesn't make sense, well...

    kchri - no worries, I can see I'm out of the loop and I wasn't offended; just confused as I often am. I never take anything written here seriously; no way to know who is kidding/being sarcastic and I can never remember which mtbr name goes with what real person (sorry to those who live as though mtbr forums are the real world).

    You mean the internet isnt the real world, dammit jim. Ill be riding sunday as long as the temp is what its suppost to be, today was cold to, much previous frost nip/ bite experiences. hopefully my command post will be fixed or have a new one and do some good training on the enduro on the downs, as North Carolina for the next month is flat and boring, how spoiled we are here.

    How often do you guys do rides like this? It sounds like a lot of fun! I'm moving there from Omaha in March and would love to join you guys for something like this...if you don't mind the new guy in town inviting himself! Of course....I'll probably be dying on my first few rides due to the altitude change, but I'd give it a shot!

    Chris and Wafoo, come on out. I think I have recruited more folks who know the route and don't plan on riding training pace up front. We should roll through Ridgeway at 10am.

    I wish! I won't be out there until mid-March! I'll definitely catch up with you guys then!

    I'm headed down to the area tomorrow (although not for that leg busting route posted by the OP). This is probably a long shot, but does anybody know if the 7 Bridges trail to 668 to Capn Jacks route is rideable?

    mtg7aa - 7 bridges is a pretty technical climb in good conditions (I only know a few riders who can cleanly pedal up most of it); I haven't been on it in a while but I'm guessing its more hike than ride for anybody right now. 668 is Pipeline and I'd be really suprised if the upper bits are doable, the lower part in Bear Creek Canyon might be good. All of that said; the smaller Buckhorn/Jacks loop is good to go. Some riding around ice patches (might be slush tomorrow), but lots of good dirt. Feel free to jump in on our little jaunt; you can always back track whenever you've had enough.

    I've ridden (and hiked a bike) 7 Bridges once before, the descent down pipeline into cap'n jacks is awesome.
    Anyway, I figured those higher parts would not be rideable, but figured I'd ask.

    Your route is probably more than I could handle at the moment.
