    Colo Springs Wed Evening Ride 7/31/13

    Wow, definitely some crazy weather that we've been having! So this week I was thinking that we should ride Pulpit Rock, weather permitting, and maybe have the canyon or Sec 16 as a backup plan.
    You guys let me know what you think.

    It is a pretty fun place to ride! We will meet at the Il Vicinos near Costco on North Nevada at 6pm unless the weather gets crappy, then I guess we can hit the canyon again this week.

    I should be in. Do we want to switch up the backup to Section 16 this week? Maybe a BJ/Section 16 route. Preferably minus momma/baby bear.

    Hey I haven't ridden Pulpit Rock either - can I get a quick summary of what to expect? I hope to get out tonight - Wed nights seems to be difficult but I'd like to try.

    Thanks!

    Ran into Becca yesterday at Palmer. Good to see friendly faces. I'm in for this one. Rode Elk, Barr, Ute, Fire Road to the Cog, and back to our pick up in Manitou this morning. Absolutely Awesome!!!

    That little freeride section you have to hike up in Pulpit is mucho fun. Hiked up it with the bike on my back and the last thing I expected to hear was freewheel at top from two DH kids. Good fun.
    P.R. Extreme for you folks on Strava.

    Looking forward to seeing you guys again tonight.

    Rumor is they built a jump line on some ridge.
    Have yet to find it.

    How long is this ride? 1hr, 2hr, 3hr? I'm heading down to the Springs tonight to hang with the lady friend, and told her I'd be done with my bike around 8pm. I planned to get lost in Palmer for a few hours, but this sounds like it might be fun. I should be arriving at the 6pm start time.

    It will likely go longer than 8:00, but we are going to be in a place that is very easy to cut short and head back (possibly on a road) to where we are meeting. The trails in Pulpit Rock are similar to Palmer Park (it's the same geological formation), and they are pretty fun to ride--you should join us!

    Hey Klucks,

    There is an Il Vicinos on North Nevada now too, and that's where we met last night. Too bad you didn't make it.

    That was a killer fun ride! I really had fun on The Fonz! (and that's a great trail name for it).

    Thanks for the tour. I had no idea half of those trails were even there and great photos as well.

    HTRN, I appreciate the lack of concern for your well being and nailing all those techy downhills with me at a high rate of speed. Mucho fun my friend.

    Great ride guys.

    Hey guys, just read through the thread.

    I'm going to school at UCCS starting later this month and would love to ride with you all. I live in Florida now and do a lot of road riding but hope to get into the real mountain bike thing even more. I'm going to be bringing a Trek Stache out there with me. I see that Pulpit Rock Park is right above campus so that would be fun to hit up with someone and get shown the ropes. I won't have a car out there so I hope I can still do a lot of the rides. Sounds to me like you tend to ride to the trail? That would be awesome... I love putting in miles.

    I'm going to try and stay in touch with these Wednesday night ride threads

    From UCCS, you can easily ride Ute Valley, Palmer Park, and Pulpit Rock. With a little more effort, you can ride Red Rocks, Cheyenne Canyon, Falcon Trail, etc.
