    My ride in Fort Collins today (pics)

    We are really fortunate up here to have this stuff literally on the edge of town. Took a ride today and snapped a few pics for you guys.

    I agree

    I've been on those trails a hundred times and it still doesn't get old. Great to be able to get out and back from the house if time is limited or I don't feel like driving.

    I was up there as well. It's hard to beat a place where 15 min of pedaling up the bike trail and jogger path from my front door with NO street riding at all, gets me to those trails.

    Nice. I was expecting rain/snow today but it turned out to be a decent day. We took our dogs for a hike on the foothills trail but no riding for me today.

    We are indeed lucky. Having just moved here from Baltimore, I'm loving it!

    Fort Collins is the Bomb. Completely addicted for the last 1 month and 4 years. Then again the whole front range is coming of age for riding . '09 is already awesome

    Nice! I was up there to from 12-1:45. I've got Pineridge/Maxwell/Shoreline/Michaud down to where I can get a solid loop in and be home in under 2 hours.

    Good stuff for sure!

    Nice photos. Having these trails in my back yard weighed heavily in my last house purchase decision since I'm a lot more likely to ride if I can do so from my driveway without the hassle of driving somewhere. There is great variety and numerous loop opportunities. Thanks for the reminder of how fortunate we are. Sometimes it is easy to take it for granted.

    Bobcat ridge

    [QUOTE=dash]Fort Collins is the Bomb.

    I agree. I rode Bobcat Ridge trail onSunday. What a great trail, great climb and techy. long dh. We drove down from Breck and were super stoked. Worth the 2+ hr drive each way for sure.

    Same goes for Breck...if the snow ever melts.

    Ok while we're on the subject.....and just for kicks...

    1. When climbing Maxwell do you use the cheater line by the fenced off area?

    2. After crossing the street and beginning the descent down to shoreline, do you ride down the set of rock stairs or hit the roller, or walk down them?

    3. When you finish shoreline and cross the street again do you ride up/down down/up the trails that lead to the end of Laporte st. or just ride across the dam and get on to Michaud/reservoir ridge.? I ask because they're obviously not as used as the other trails in the area.

    4. When it's 90-100 degrees in summer, when riding shoreline have you ever said &*^# this and just gone swimming instead?

    Discuss. and enjoy.



    ps.
    my answers
    1. No
    2. I walk the stairs, but am getting closer to trying.
    3. usually just cross the dam, but have rode them a few times. Very tough to climb.
    4. A few times.
