    Solo evening @ Bobcat (pic heavy)

    Since I was riding alone (did't see another person and no other cars at the trail head) I had a chance to take my time and try out my new camera. What a great night, I'm sure I'll be missing the cool evenings soon enough.

    Awesome pics!

    Did you go up Power Line on your single speed?!??

    Yeah, I have to hike the two really steep sections near the top but the rest is a nice grind.

    Impressive. Very impressive. Powerline is one long granny gear section for me. Heck, I cannot fathom how I could ride any of it on a single speed.

    Just west of Ft. Collins. It's part of the Ft. Collins Natural Area.

    Great pics - looks like that new camera is working just fine.
    You've got to love those rare times when you get the whole trail to yourself. I don't know about Ft.C. but that's RARE here in JeffCo.

    Volkstech, next time I SS with you, please be sure to bring the camera. That way you will have an excuse for repeatedly waiting for me.

    Was that last night (Tuesday night)? trying to figure out when you were riding in the evening without rain last, seems like last year.......

    Girlfriend and I were out there last Friday in May. We got there at 5:30, and I don't think we saw anyone else. We almost didn't make it back before dark. She was not having a fun ride, nobody told me it was that technical, or that Powerline was so steep!!! Next time we will definitely just go up and down Ginny. No point in doing an up fire road if you still have to get off the bike a few times. Fun terrain though, super rocky.

    Just bought my Lory pass last night, so can't wait to go ride over there more, "legally" of course!

    Powerline = Single Speed?!?! Man, do you make me feel weak. If there was an "I am not worthy" icon, I would insert it here.

    Nice pics! Bobcat is a nice ride and with all the precip. the landscape is beautiful.

    I SS'd up Powerline with Volks this weekend. I knew I was in for a hurting when he told me that he forgot the camera.

    Yeh, It was last night Tues. the storms seemed to just go around me. I was only up there about 1hr45min.
    I liked the climb up power line just to see how far I can make it on the SS.
