    Freedom Riders Wed 10/7 7pm REI Flagship

    Got an email from COMBA yesterday with this in it.
    Haven't seen it posted.
    Think I'll try to make it.
    Anyone else?

    "Join us Wednesday, Oct. 7th, at 7pm, for a special IMBA/COMBA Movie Night Fundraiser down at the REI Flagship store in Denver. Freedom Riders is the story of a small core group of riders who evolved from covertly building rough and unsustainable trails to creating a precedent-setting relationship with National Forest Service and crafting some of the best freeride trails in the country. Tickets: $5 at the door. Doors open at 6pm. Proceeds benefit the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and the Colorado Mountain Biking Association (COMBA). For more information, call (303) 545-9011 or info@COMBA.org."

    I saw "Freedom Riders" at the COPMOBA fund raiser. It's a great film and well worth the $5! Hell, I think I paid $10 and still felt like I got more than I paid for + it's a great cause!

    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Looks like my date canceled on me - he's ugly and evil anyway.
    Not sure if my wife'll wanna go.
    Looks like some others are still planning on being there - so I'll see you there.

    That was better than I thought it was going to be, more documentary than extreme sports video, pretty cool.

    Now we need to go back up there & step up the lines we were riding!

    thanks!

    thanks for coming out, everyone...

    some good messages, IMHO, in the film which could certainly be applied locally.

    thanks to REI for hosting us!

    P.S.
    bonus points to nickle for driving up from the springs! (hope someone—icegeek?— paid for your beer).
