    COS Night Ride 2/20/2013

    Kristian mentioned in last week's post about riding up near his house this week. It's hella icy out near my place (Cheyenne Canyon), how is the Black Forest area? I'm down for anything. Forecast doesn't seem to be calling for any more precip.

    Krisitan-- what is the terrain like up there? Lots of open rock and rock faces or mostly "dirt"? I need to know if I should change out of my studded tires.

    Its all good, you will enjoy the trails. SS or 29er is the best option out that way

    I know Kman was talking about turning the weds ride out at black forest into a bike-wrenching night in his garage if the weather is crap
    (wednesday is a high of 34 with 30% chance of precip)

    but i'm always up for some smooth/flowy BFRP trailz that wander around massive houses

    Black forest is all dirt (mostly sand and gravel actually). The trails are mostly skid steerer cut trails, but anyone who I've taken out there will agree that the trails have an incredible amount of flow for being wide trails that go through a neighborhood.

    As of two Sundays ago when Joe and I rode there, everything was free of ice, but since then we've had some freeze/thaw cycles so it's hard to know. I have very little snow in my yard though so I'm guessing that most everything has melted. We'll probably do my standard loop which is about 12 miles of fairly high paced riding, but we can cut or extend that as desired.

    If you know where I live, let's meet at my house at 6:00 and leave a little after that. Shoot me a PM if you need directions. I'll get some Papa Murphy's pizzas and have my babysitter throw them in when we're almost done so we can chow on pizza and watch bike movies when we are finished (please bring a change of clothes and shoes though since we'll be in the living room instead of out on the patio). Please post up so I know how many pies to buy. You're welcome to bring beer if you want to. If you have any good movies, bring them too.

    If the weather gets too snowy to ride up there (probably more than 5"), I'm up for doing a maintenance night instead.

    In for sure and hoping for just the right amount of snow. I remember conditions being pretty sweet with some moisture on those trails.

    I like racing slot cars, eating pizza, and watching tail-whips. I will be in attendance.

    I thinki a fist bump is in order for two reasons. I am a big baby and bruise easily. How can you not enjoy a Jar jar line with all this talking of star wars.

    Just noticed that they changed the weather for tomorrow, 70% with 2-4" possible, I am still betting we get to ride.

    Stupid weather.

    Stupid weather.
    The only issue there is that if we get 4" of snow (read 6"+ in Black Forest), I don't want to make my mom battle through it to come babysit. If that's the case, I might need to do a rapid change of plans and venue (unless you guys want to ride without me and just have pizza afterwards which is cool too).

    No problem. Text me your address. As seats fill up, we will coordinate pickup times.

    That leaves two more spots...
