    well, if your in denver your choices are pretty much limited to green mtn. - jeffco trails are only one hour after sunset.

    The springs - it appears know how to do things and have many options

    buff creek is good - but trails have been for the most not very rideable

    feel free to join the t.i.t.s. rides if you are lookin to get out and are in or around denver

    We night ride on Tuesdays. Been hitting Left Hand OHV quite a bit. A few weeks ago we rode Buchanan Pass in the snowpack. That was fun.

    Just got my new light this weekend. Do you guys hit up the trails on the tits rides. Dave I would love to ride with you guys, but I live 45 minutes from lyons in Arvada. I heard you changed your location of your shop to main street.

    Yes we ride trails- like i said wintertime is mostly GM or in mild winters we'll go up to buff creek. Summer months we have a much wider range of trails.

    Snow does not usually hold us back- mud will put a damper on things but this week looks pretty good.

    We start at Ironworks because a post ride beer is good! sometimes a pre ride


    and if you dont drink- thats cool too with us!

    The Springs is where its at. We have at least 100km of singletrack that is still totally rideable right now. Today I rode up to 2500m on good trail and I couldv'e ridden it tonight too.

    I really miss the night riding in the Springs.

    You can ride Quarry Mesa in Castle Rock, it's at least something even if you are just doing laps!

    Rode Green Mountain tonight and night riding made it so fun. It was amazing. I'm hooked. My next goal is to ride at night after a snow.

    One of us! One of us!
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    We generally hit East/West Regional Trail starting on the west side of H.R. and ride over to Rock Creek HS and back. Good ride.

    Ya, it's a good one. Just keep a mindful eye out for elk. For some reason, they like to hang out on the trail.
