    Fires in Colorado Springs

    Last night I booked a hotel for a week in Colorado Springs starting July 15th. A few hours later I heard there were fires in the area!

    Just wanted to know how fires are expected to effect trail riding conditions.

    Also, are there any group rides in the area for beginner to intermediate skill levels? I'm from Nebraska, so I won't be used to the crazy Colorado climbs and will probably be a little on the slow side!

    Shouldn't be an issue by then, the fire here locally is 100% contained but there are fires south of us that are affecting air quality right now. Hopefully the monsoon pattern kicks in and we start getting some afternoon moisture, but right now its stupid hot and dry.

    That is unless new ones spring up.
