    Did everyone on the front range go to Pueblo today?

    Crap it was busy down there today. But near 70s and riding dry dirt in shorts and a Jersey was really nice. And just what I needed this time of year.

    I saw about 20 cars with bikes on em heading south past Hwy 24 today. Must have been an overload there today.

    Should have, probably. Instead, I broke out the roadie and got in 29 miles with some good climbing (into a headwind, no less).

    The parking lot was full but the trails weren't crowded. I think there was a good mix of xc folks hitting Voodoo and the limit trails and people playing on the rocks in the canyon.

    I did that Saturday. Got there about 10:30 and had to park in the lower lot. I expected a bit of a bummer but no bummer appeared. There were certainly more people than usual out there, but it was never disruptive. Kind of amazing how many people that place can soak up. And yeah, riding in shorts and t-shirt was really nice.

    It did seem a little crazy - but its really wet up north. we decided to come check it out from fort collins - we have had snow for a while and we needed singletrack. fun trails and thought folks were really considerate for the most part. totally agree that the parking lots looked really scary, but trails were mostly fine.... we decided it was just a big group ride day...

    Amazing riding in Pueblo Sunday. Not a hint of snow or ice! Over 70 degrees although real windy out West on Voodoo. The canyons were totally clear of snow and ice too! Total contrast to the rest of the state I believe.

    We were there. We got there pretty early so the parking lots really weren't full. It didn't seem like there were all that many people there, but I don't really ride there all that often so I don't know what you consider busy. It didn't seem crowded at all compared to all the Front Range trails up here. If that's crowded, I'd like to have that problem.

    My girlfriend took a nasty nosedive off a 3 foot drop she didn't mean to go off of and faceplanted hard on Skull Canyon (she went to the right instead of the left). If any of you were 1 of the 3 people who stopped to help and see if she was OK, thank you. It was a nasty wreck, I thought we were in for an ER trip for sure, but she got up after awhile and rode the rest of the way out and crushed the rest of the rocky sections. Luckily she only came away with scrapes and [huge] bruises. She handled it like a champ though and she still loves mountain biking.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    Was out there both days over the weekend, that was some great riding and only had one issue with the "super cool" guy charging down water fall trail so he could try to get his strava race speed on. Even sent out a blocker in front and was waiting for her to clear the trail and then come charging in. It was pretty retarded, he even came from a above trail so he could hit the entrance at full sprint speed and yell something about he was 2nd as he came by. Other then that it was a great day of riding! I might even have some sunburn spots on my arms!!

    Rode there Saturday with my son. It was great. We tagged along with some other riders on an XC loop. There were a lot of people out there, but it rarely was an issue. First time in Pueblo and we will surely be going back before weather heats up. Nice mix of XC and technical canyons.

    Fun to get some sun and trails over the two days this weekend. Both days the main lot was full and plenty of overflow, but rarely a problem out on the trails. And camping was pretty nice too

    LOL! That's funny! Nice tip Lubes. I had to log into Strava to see who it probably was. And to think his name is Dr Wuss, seems appropriate doesn't it? I'm sure this guy pisses people off all up and down the front range.

    That dude was a uber duche, needs to rethink his reality a 110 pound spandex wearing dweeb should know better than to piss off and disrespect other riders. Especially when theres GB's in the mix.

    Other than ducher it was awesome out there.

    I'm not anywhere near truly fast, but I'm still happy and as friendly as most I run into. If you come up behind me on a climb, where I'm just barely making headway, I'm likely to let you go by. But, if I'm thinking I'm going to clear a climb I haven't before, I'm going to stick to my line and accomplish my goal. We just have to share and sometimes you truly fast and oh so cool kids just have to wait for us slow pokes.

    I am drwuss, and I did get the kom, but I did NOT have blocker go down the trail. I was waiting at the top for everyone else to clear out so I could get as clean a run as possible and that meant letting that random person that you thought was a blocker get to the bottom of the trail. I would of stayed on top of the trail for another hour for a clean run if that is what it took but there were two of your group of four that (in my eyes) kept telling me to go and looked agitated that I was just hanging out at the top. I wish now that I had just chilled at the intersection then we could have talked and I doubt very much that you would have such a strong negative opinion of me, I am sorry if I somehow messed up your day by trying to have a minimal impact upon it.

    also, I am wondering, what is a GB? I know nothing of the forum lingo. I wish I had seen the eagle, but I did get to see the cool hawks nest near the bottom of the freeride trail.

    agreed - pile on with photos - much more interesting than bashing the strava obsessed... - edit - and i have met dr wuss - he is not a ****** - he's just fast - sounds like he was really just trying to be careful...



    one of these days-i am going to bite my tongue off - i have to quit with the MJ impression...

    I was there. I think I was 1 of 2 people that had a 26er. Old school, rare. Got there well in advance (around 9), rode lots of fun sections before the wind picked up.

    Really? There seemed to be plenty of 26ers. I was on a Pivot Mach 5.7 and my girlfriend was on a Specialized Safire. I still love my 26er for maximum fun quotient!

    The camping right in the park is fine, though very much RV-ish. And of course you pay.

    The nearest at-large camping I would expect to find would be west up that highway 96 to National Forest land near Wetmore or west up highway 78 (south of 96--mapquest shows you could cut down to that highway from 96 on dirt roads) to near Beulah. Probably take near half an hour to get to either of those places from the park. I don't know if State Parks allows you to at-large camp inside. Certainly there is no place you could drive in.

    But I don't know. Maybe some of the local Pee-ebluh folks will chime in.

    The word on Pueblo is definitely out. It's far enough out of the way though, that I doubt it will ever get too nuts as far as crowds. The times I've been there everyone is fine, even a week or two before the voodoo race.

    I don't get too worked up on what someone else wears, how big or small their wheels are, or whether or not they smile and wave. As long as most folks show basic etiquette - and the large majority do - I'm fine.

    So, did he drop in, in front of you & yell out Strava? Should have just cut him off & pinned it man! (if it was a DH segment

    BTW, I know drwuss (kinda, like I know some bartenders), & he is indeed a pretty cool guy (as long as he buys me a beer for saying this), he is also one fast mofo, both up & down, but, like me, sometime ya gotta get your pin it on, ya know

    Glad to see everyone coming to enjoy my local trails as, basically just starting out, I learn a lot from the more experienced riders. Just be courteous if you come up behind me. I'm easily recognizable:

    No snow or rain today (yet), but the wind is howling right now. Trail conditions should be good tomorrow with a forecast of sun, mid 40s, but breezy.

    Camping at the state park this weekend. Strava-ing anything and everything, j/k. I gather the trails are pretty flat down there, is 32x18 a good ss ratio on a 29er or would that be too spinny?

    Last time I rode SS there it was 33x20 and that was really fun. You are constantly shedding speed into corners and accelerating out. Even though it's mostly flat, average speeds would favor a moderate gear. I doubt you'd find 32:18 to be too low. Probably be a very good gear if not a bit too high (depends on your power of course).

    You're probably riding there as I post this, but there's no fee on the south side. Some of the pictures above are Broken Hip Trail. Those pictures are pretty characteristic of the area. All the black diamond trails have similar rock features. Here's a shot of Broken Hip from yesterday

    "All Colorado State Parks have entrance fees. All vehicles are required to have an entrance pass and some parks have walk-in fees."

    Pueblo is $7 a day or $70 a year pass (its what I get)

    They're just not as fully staffed off season in regards to always checking, but they do check on a regular basis. You can park at the red gate along the highway (break-in issues) or elsewhere and ride your bike in.

    I always pay the fee whether there's an attendant there or not. Makes the park service feel it's worthwhile to cater to the desires of Mtn bikers rather than seeing up as a bunch of scamming dirtbags.

    Two flavors IMO

    For those who haven't been or explored thoroughly, I'd say there are two distinct flavors of trail there. On the south shore, closer to the park hq there are droppy rocky trails like the one pictured. A series of small canyons or draws, trails like Broken Hip, Free Ride, Rattle Snake. Technical trails with varying levels of difficulty and exposure. I see them as good learning trails for tech riding. Many of them can be visually intimidating to the un-initiated, but with nice ramped slabs and often with safe run-outs.

    Then further out there are what I would call classic XC riding trails. Driftwood, Inner Limits, Outer Limits, Voodoo, Cuatro Sinko... You can easily do 30 miles worth of this stuff without retracing your steps. Braking hard into corners, cornering hard, accelerating out--short climbs and descents. It can be an awesome physical workout even without any appreciable climbing if you push for speed because you are constantly accelerating, shedding speed, accelerating. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I think there are lots of people who just go and ride the canyons. I usually just go straight out either Duke to Cuatro Sinko or South Shore to Driftwood->Inner Limits->Outer Limits->Voodoo->Antelope->Waterfall->South Shore and back. That's just my bag. The day I was there late in February when the parking lot was totally packed, I only saw a handful of people out on the far niente. I assume most everyone was rocking the canyons. Which is cool.

    Last time I was there I did the long XC ride but then hit a few canyon trails on the tail end of my ride. And that was fun.

    I like it there, but I've really done the crap out of it this year. Now that things are opening up here in Salida I'm not sure whether I'll go down again until the fall. We'll see.
