    front range conditions

    I am going to be in the front range region for the next 2-3 weeks, driving down from WA St. Our local foot hills are still dusted out and we are riding regularly. Whats the score out there? Hall Ranch still good to go? Should I bring my bicycle?

    Thanks,

    Boostin

    duh... ? I guess that sticky would help people who are locals and know all the place names and locations.

    Thanks to those that helped out.

    Total crapshot. Right now, everything is still snowed it. So when you come it's going to be one of these:

    perfect
    muddy
    snowpack
    snowpack and mud
    dry with a lot of muddy spots
    completely muddy
    under 2' of snow

    I'm a junkie. I'd bring my bike for sure. At the very least, ride when it's frozen and it'll at least be marginal.

    You're right, I mean I just made an extra effort to collect sources for easy researching. It's not anyone's fault that everyone on the board is illiterate and is unable to understand what I'm posting and why I would bother posting such nonsense when absolutely no one ever asks about the weather on the front range. From now on, I'm taking KFC's example and only posting: "moar lulz".

    +1. You can ride almost everyday in the winter here. You just have to be prepared to go at night or at dawn when it is frozen and not mind spinning around in some snow. In fact, the biggest problem in the winter is that it's not cold enough to ride - mud not frozen. Different mentality to winter riding.

    We don't have to worry about boostin asking for info anymore. After all, he might think us Coloradoans are nice people and come spend some money here in our bike shops. Just saying.

    Let me make it clear that I was NOT referring to you. I was referring to this particular board being so damned out of it they completely misunderstood that I had started a thread about weather a month ago in response to several others asking the same question.
