    Hallin' Ranch

    It's been a couple of years since I've ridden the Hall. It was fun to get back to Lyons and ride a great trail. It was also nice to see Mr. Redstone Cyclery heading out for a quick spin.

    Ride On!

    Very cool, good pics, rode there this morning myself.

    Are those Firecracker 50 socks? I got a couple pairs of those too; Woolie Boolies are great, almost worth the $65 entry fee by themselves.

    jl, Did I see you yesterday??

    Were you in the blue VW?

    If so, I was in the red Saab leaving when you arrived. It was good day. Good conditions, hardly any other peeps out. Love Hall like that.

    Not my VW, I've got a green mk3 gti and a black mk3 4door (current bike car). Probably squeeze a ride in up there late tomorrow though. I usually park at Redstone too.

    KW, I think we may have crossed paths before. I'm riding tom. begining anywhere from 11am to 1pm. I have not seen my schedule for the middle of the day yet. I am riding green 5 spot.

    I'd park at Dave's too, but I'm not that ambitious

    Here's a pic from a week or so ago. Messing around with timer shots.

    Hey I think you are out of longmont....we talked last year about riding some and you used to come into the BlueSky shop. Let me know if you still want some company and we can maybe carpool from the area.

    Yup, that's me. I live real close to Blue sky. I can get away to ride quite often during the day for a couple hours if you are up for it.

    You still at Blue Sky??

    Me to. I am not at the shop anymore, just work out of my garage now doing repairs. I have a fairly flexible schedule and time most days to ride also--PM me or let me know whats up and I can get you some good contact info.

    Nice pics...in my opinion Hall Ranch is one of the most underrated trails along the front range. I just wish I still lived close enough to ride it every week!

    kitchenware, we need to hook up for a ride sometime. I think I could learn a thing or two from ya and would certainly like the challenge of trying to keep up.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.
