    Sol Vista this weekend?

    Kman and I have spoken about heading up to sol vista sometime this weekend. Is anyone else planning on heading up? I cant afford to race this weekend so figured that a sol vista day is in order

    I'll be here!

    Seriously though, we've had a ton of moisture up here early this week and the trails are in epic condition. Honestly, I don't believe I've ever seen them better. C'mon up and visit. The racer crowd will be in Crested Butter and you'll have the place to yourselves.

    Happy to answer questions here.

    I was thinking about either SV or WP on Saturday. Looking forward to a chair lift after that long climb we did Tuesday night.

    Saturday sounds good to me (at SV).

    There doesn't happen to be a beer tasting going on at the top of the lift at the over look again this weekend?

    I'll be leaving the north end of CO Springs 7-7:30ish. If needed I could haul a bike for someone but I'm old and know I won't last the full day up there so I'll be heading home before the lift closes. And speaking of being old I hope I don't kill myself trying to keep up with you guys.

    Let's meet somewhere off of Northgate if that's cool with you--in the Santa fe lot perhaps? I have space for one more in my car. I'm thinking head up for opening and staying most of the day (if not all of it).

    How about 6:45 at the Santa Fe parking lot at the Northgate exit? The mountain opens at 10:00 so I should have enough time to drive up in the slobrid and still get ready. I have space for one more in my car with HTRN and I. (or I could pick someone up on the way up if any Boulderites/Denverites want a ride).

    Big Bald Clyde, pm me your phone number and we can figure out a meeting place on the mountain.

    They open at 10:00 and I like to be there early so I can get all my crap together. Are you coming up? I'm seeing a "whooah" repeat down Silky Johnson, although we will have to bring our own beer this time--I don't think they will have a tent set up at the top of the mountain .

    If we don't meet up in the parking lot, give me a ring when you get there and we'll hook up on the mountain.

    There's a possibility that I might have to work tomorrow so I can't really make any definite plans. Stinkin' work...

    You guys have fun!
    If anyone wants to ride locally tomorrow hit me up. If I'm not working I'm sure I'll be up for a ride.

    I should not be allowed to ride with a chest mount--I just ride way too far back for that to work.

    Still, nice job on the editing. It doesn't quite capture how much fun we had though--I can't wait to get up there again! Sol Vista rocks!!!

    Cool. Nice video! Looks like fun. Sry to hear about gopro. I can't wait to get up! I was going to go today but I'll have to get up next weekend. Was it the berm gap you couldn't make? It didn't look too bad in a video I saw but it's always different when your there.
