    Palmer Ride on 11/13

    Let's get a Palmer ride going for next Saturday. Let's try to meet at the parking lot on Paseo next to the stables by like...9:30? Hopefully there will be enough people there to have a fun day riding and maybe even cook some burgers for lunch up near lazyland picnic area or something, I dunno.

    I know that atleast me, snowskilz, and a few others will probably be on full on dh bikes, so even though I have ridden up Palmer in the past I'd much rather shuttle it and I'm sure others wouldnt mind either. (Yes shuttling can be fun. )

    Directions for you out of towners to get here is as follows:
    I-25 South
    Exit at Nevada
    Drive south for a bit, then turn East onto Austin Bluffs
    Continue on Austin Bluffs for a few miles
    Turn South (Right) onto Union Boulevard
    Continue for a few miles
    Turn east (left) onto Circle Dr.
    Continue for less than half a mile
    Turn left onto Paseo Rd
    Continue for a mile or two, there will be some stables on the left, follow the road straight till abit after and there is a parking lot ont he left with some bathrooms at them.

    I'm cool with early, just pointing out the obvious. If it's anything like our lower elevation trails this time of year, it won't matter what time we go, there will still be an ass-load of ppl.

    I'm in for this.

    Other north-of-Denver folks want to carpool from Boulder?

    Good thing armour and full face helmets are nice and warm. Could be nice and chilly.
    I'll load up the thermos with boozed up coffee maybe.

    Shuttling Palmer Park?

    It's more trouble than it's worth (speaking from my personal palmer shuttle attempts). There are really only a few downhills that are worth shuttling and unless the shuttle vehicle is large truck, you spend more time taking your wheels off and on that you do riding.

    I am willing to lead a pedaling ride for anyone who doesn't want to shuttle.

    K (did I really offer to lead an XC ride INSTEAD of a shuttle?!?! Someone check my temperature--I must be coming down with something....)

    Definitely, and I'll be riding up too unless there's a truck that makes us able to just throw them into the back.

    Boulder

    For anyone around Boulder, Dave, Jim,ETR. I'm gonna drive down there, and I'll take whoever wants. I have 2 bike racks, but could borrow one of yours and carry 4 people. No shuttling for me! I'm one of those guys on a big bike that enjoys climbing...Gotta love the Gemini

    If snowskilz brings his SGS to help me further in my decision making process I'd definitely be up for some climbing with the rest of you. My V-10 is a biotch to climb with but its doable, lol.

    I'm in. Big bike shuttleing or not (preffer not) me and my big bike got 4+ hours of climbing in this weekend; my shoulders are sore. Don't know if that was because of the hike-a-bikes or trying to force a pig of a bike to do things it didn't want to do on DHs.

    Armour and full face helmets? Any pics of this section? I'd be down with going but I ain't got no armor other than a camelback and healthy layer of fat.

    Shuttle? Palmer? Dang...you're lazier than even I am!

    I'd be there, but I've got family duty on the Honey Do List. Where/what trails would you shuttle in Palmer anyways?

    Anyone up for a 6am Wed techno romp around Palmer? I'm there every Wed leading a techno tour...usually at least two of us, sometimes 5-6 riders. Weather don't matter, light don't matter!

    Lol. I'm not necessarily lazy as I'll ride up Palmer on my V-10 anyways (mtnbike24_7 has done it with me...) but as long as there is a good pickup I just prefer to shuttle and yea yea....shuttling palmer is lame but I think its fun anyways.

    I was thinking of hitting Cobblestone, the Stairs, a dh trail off of grand view outlook or whatever it is, maybe messing around at lazyland, improv and any others that people wanted to hit.

    Mere flesh wound. Scrub that out with an SOS pad and you'll be golden.
