    Calling all riders, what is everyone thinking? We have not been to CMSP in sometime.

    Not sure if I will make it or not. I will have to do a rib test ride tomorrow up and down the street to see if I can survive a ride but CMSP has some tame trails so I might be able to suck it up for a bit.

    I was thinking of riding someone elses bike....BikeSource and Yeti are doing a Demo at Green Mountain 4 - 8pm

    ARC Carbon?
    SB95 Carbon?
    SB66 Carbon?

    Good choices to have...pm me if you think you may make the drive up.

    There's a snowballs chance in hell that I'll make it back to the Springs in time. But there is a chance! You guys have fun!

    CMSP would give me a good reason to ride the hard tail, so..cool.

    Is it bad that I always think about what post-ride food to eat is available on whatever side of town that we plan these rides?

    Not bad at all, seeing as how I like going for food after the night rides since its too late to cook a real dinner by the time I get home.

    I'll be there regardless, with a buddy. I'm parking at the visitors center at the gate to Carson and riding up. Planning Black and Talon before dark at least. I have zero lights. Want to try and get some "all mountain trial" type shots. Nicolai All Mountain Trial on Vimeo

    Official Plan - For those car pooling meet at Safeway parking lot leaving at 5:55 and hitting CMSP at 6:05 main parking lot. Everyone else meet 6:05 main parking lot (past the gate down by the bathrooms). I hope everyone can make it. If you are carpooling post up so you do not get left behind. I plan on riding in so I will see everyone in the park.

    I am car pooling, and I have room for one other bike with a 9 or 20mm axle. I have room for three other people total. See you guys tonight!

    We may need a backup plan. CMSP does not handle H2O well. If anyones in the area and has condition update let us know.

    @ Brian: you're welcome to ride with me if we do CMSP.

    @ Nick: I agree on the backup plan. Canyon ride?

    It doesn't look like anywhere in the springs has received more than a trace based on NOAA's rainfall map, but it might be a good idea to enact the back up plan--thoughs???

    You fellas have fun tonight. Don't think I'm making this one tonight. Ribs are such a long healing process that I hate.

    OK, heading for Safeway now then. If anyone else is riding, we might decide last minute to do the canyon--give me a call if you're in (I'm calling you right now Brian).
