    Thanks.

    Dakota Ridge is in Morrison, just below Golden and MW is the Matthew Winters trail system there in the same area. Good weekday ride.

    Doesn't sound like it's going to work out for you guys, but I was planning to hit either Lair o' the Bear or Dakota M/W (brought my nicest outfit - so I could stand around and look cool in the parking lot if I do the later) this afternoon - 4:30 or so.

    That's popular there... and White

    There were a couple 'team gear' guys there yesterday. I thought they were going to be hammerheads, so I farted around enough to be behind them so I wouldn't be pressured to play rabbit. Then they started the first climb up Dakata and I realized they were overdressed for the party.

    I'll wait around for those types to start their rides, but it's usually just because it gives me a perverse sense of satisfaction to pass them on my 38lb pig. I've come to believe that most of the time, there is an inverse relationship between how fast you look, and how fast you ride.

    Being unemployed really helps with his turn around, unless you count baby sitter/bike instructor extradoirdinaire (sp)....

    oh yeah, nice pics KW...you got full sizes of those, or is that as big as they get?

    Unemployed... that makes it sound like I'm looking for a job. That's not something I'm prepared to do for a while, unless it's a partime gig to help pay for skooool.

    I do have LARGE ones of those, but they're [SIZE=6]LARGE[/SIZE]. I'll get em up later when I have some bandwidth freed up.

    Cool pics, I'll have to check out those trails soon. Here is a pano I took from the Overlook point at Heil Valley Ranch yesterday on my after work ride.

    Exactly. I'm not saying good gear is wrong, but if you're in a team kit, you better be faster than my slow-ass or I'm going to poke fun at you on the internet.

    What did you think of Heil Valley jdub? If you guys find out any more info on Sourdough and its conditions, keep me informed. I wouldn't mind trying to hit it one last time before winter

    I think the trail description is a wee bit extreme on that link. hehe

    "Trail Info
    Steep, deadly, piss-in-yer-pants material. Singletrack, humongous climbs, and extremly technical riding."

    Morrison Slide is a beotch of a climb though and has gotten pretty techy in a couple spots.

    I've seen people on fully rigids ride/clean it. You'll be fine. You must wear pink to ride it though. If you don't like techy stuff, just don't do the ridge part. Plenty of goods at MW still (still some techy on the loop).

    I like Heil quite a bit. Any trail with tons of rocks is pretty good to me. I wish I had more time as I would have like to have done a couple loops around the Ponderosa trail, but it was getting pretty late so we just did an up and down.

    Still getting used to climbing for several continuous miles before flattening out, but its getting easier. I rode with a coworker and I had to stop 2 or 3 times to rest briefly, but I was climbing better than I had been so maybe I'm starting to get used to it.

    Wow, I haven't stopped by for quite some time, but I'm glad I did. K-Ware, those shots are nice. The first one is uber-cool.
