    overnight ride and camp invite

    next Sat. 5/17/08. Planning on riding from my place in Windsor to Estes Park, or Mishawaka(someplace with beer at the end) if anyone cares to join. Planning on linking up as much good singletrack along the way as possible. I'll be passing thru Loveland around 10 am with a quick stop by the coffee tree(422 E 4th St), and tortilla factory for a burrito or three.

    Yes, I live right by Tozer school. Holler at me to ride sometime. The plan is pretty loose, depending on who shows/weather, etc., but my plan is to ride thru Loveland, and hit Backbone to Blue Sky to Ginny to Devils Gulch Rd. Hit beer stash, and decide on options. Option A:Thru Crosier, and into Estes for some grub, and maybe a loop above town. Plan B: Up and over Donner-up Monument- Down Flowers to Stove prarie- Quick Poach to top of Youngs. Down Youngs up rd to Mishawaka for beers, and a bit of a listen to the band " Head for the Hills". Either way, plan is to have a good time, ride some great trails, and camp out before riding home.

    OTB on a steep granite slab.Pretty stupid really. The six inches of flesh that my chainring removed actually hurt a lot more than my wrist. I talked the doc into a brace instead of a cast i can sort of ride . Its healing up well.

    We are looking at Greeley(family) Loveland,And yes Windsor.It shouldn't be long the housing market up here is strong.We had two showings yesterday! Yeah we should get some beer/grub. Maybe take the chitlins on the Poudre trail or something.

    Whats the address of the house?

    At least you can still ride. My hip and thumb are still sore from an icy corner on the bone a couple mo back. A kiddo ride sounds fun. Here's a link to that house http://www.600chestnut.com/

    Huh. I live just north of the library. So it's a two-day ride?

    Any plans this weekend?

    throw batman! We are close. Stop by for a beer, and bike staring sometime(everyone drinks beer and stares at their bikes right?) I'm right behind tozer w/ a mountain bike weather vane in front yard. It's a two day ride, and second day should be easier. Hoping to break out for at least a little riding this w/e, but I've gotta knock out some honey-do's, so I can enjoy next w/e guilt free I'll be packing a sleeping bag and hammock w/ me. Here's a few pics from a previous overnighter black moose drooling

    Crazy. I'm in a corner house with a blue Saturn in from of it, just north of the library. I don't see many other cyclists on my daily commute from Windsor to Greeley--just trucks.

    I'll have to see about the overnight ride. I think my fiancee has some family coming in. Maybe I'll tag along for the first section at least.

    I'd love to see how you link from Glen Haven over to Red Feather.

    I've got skills; I can do it.

    I'm not sure of the skater (I don't think it's Stacy), but that's the era.

    If you get the chance you should ride that section. It is exceptional. Part of it was dubbed the Black Moose. Migz and I were riding in the pouring rain and got passed on a fairly fast downhill by the biggest bull moose I have ever seen. He was leaving dinner plate size divots on the trail. Its amazing how fast a moose can run through tight trees.

    Man, I got to ride with you and Miguel again. I'd be down for this ride, but the 17th is Rachel's homeschool graduation celebration!

    Have fun, take pictures, and stop by if you guys are in the 'hood.

    Hey DaveM ,I'm Travis ,I've ridden with Miguel and Troy since the early 90s. I moved to the Blackhills and now I'm comin home to the BIG hills You definitely should ride with them again. Miguel's rides are always an adventure/torture.

    Speaking into a cold can of Dales Pale Ale- " Confirming 9am departure over" "Roger that" " Ensure the Northern perimeter is secure, and rest assured that a Stone Goat battalion will arrive at approx. 8pm w/ ammo drop at check point Estes" Stroking Optimus, my trusty geared steed- "I'll do it. I'll do it for my front range brothers and sisters, so that I can hopefully gain the wisdom . The wisdom to recommend the the correct tire for the Northern front range in March. When conditions are sandy, and potentially off camber. The correct apparel for shuttle's, on Apex or Maxwell of course, and maybe just maybe I'll get insight on where to live if you want to be a karaoke specialist, and were hoping there was freeride trails nearby." " Adelle Arakawa says it could be cold" " Aye,it could be rainy, windy, or cold. Ride Saturday, and you may die under the pale moonlight, run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and SECURE THE NORTHERN PERIMETER! They may take away our lives, charge us $4 a gallon, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

    Loveland - Estes perimeter report

    Here's a few shots from the Loveland to Estes segment. Ended up riding from Lew's place in Loveland to Backbone-Blue Sky. Up rd to Ginny Trail. A bit of hike-a-bike to backside of Storm Mountain to devils gulch rd to GlenHaven. Up Crosier, and out by H Bar G to Estes. Met up w/ Lew(he had to work), grabbed some beer, and rode up to Pole Hill. Camped out, and rode to fire observatory area in morning(Saw what looked to be a fire over near Lyons?).Lew took some pics, so hopefully he'll post em up later. We then rode a mostly downhill fire rd to Pinewood Reservoir, and back to Lew's place. It was an awesome loop right out the door, but now that I figured out how to connect a few pieces I'll def. do it in reverse next time(more shade & fire road on way up, and more single track on way down going clockwise). Have a good wk all.
