    Friday Night At The Improve

    For those of you making the journey south tomorrow.

    Snapped these on my ride home tonight. Brisk, but totally dry.

    Not bad. Think you'll be making the ride tomorrow morning (9:30 at the parking lot with bathrooms on Paseo) as long as weather isnt horrible?

    Looks like fun.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    you in colorado springs?

    We're riding there tomorrow morning. Depending where you are, the easiest way to instruct you is to take from intown Academy onto East Circle. Then turn left onto Paseo, follow this up till you get to some gates with a parking lot on the immediate left with some bathrooms. Need further driving directions PM me.

    i'm in good ol fort collins, that might be a bit of a drive for me. that ride looks good and gnarly. I'll probably head up to horsetooth, i think the year passes are on sale for the new year.

    Well, obviously I'm not gonna make it. My mini Bruce Lee had belt testing this morning, and didn't finish up till about 11:30.

    Can't believe I've been here this long and never ridden it before. It was fun, and I dig riding in snow. Wasn't enough to make it difficult, just a little wet in spots. We got off the trail around 2:30 I think?
    I'd have to say it was definitely better than early season snbding, but maybe I'm just a powder snob.

    We did one more ride up along the road, and then didn't see the cars again until we were done. Kristian said we were riding some 4 mile trail. It got muddy before we finished up, so we took cobblestone back down instead. Fun stuff, I was starting to finally get into a rhythm towards the end. Only problem is, my bike worked awesome and now I'm having second thoughts about replacing it...
