    Solstice Ride

    So, I finally got approval from the missus to go on the T.I.T.S. ride (once I explained what that meant). But didn't really feel like tubing. With the extra light, I decided to drive a little out of town and was rewarded with some amazing singletrack. Didn't see a soul in 2h 45 min.

    Started with some nice technical ST, with a little HaB in the middle, followed by some of the narrowest ST I have ridden on the front range. Views were amazing, sunset was out of control.

    Yeppers. Everytime I ride up there I ask myself why I don't more often. Rarely see anyone at GG.

    Very nice - you're obligated to say where it was now.

    If you are willing to put up with the old jeep roads that go straight up and are considered "trails" GG does have some nice sections and a good, remote feel to it.

    It definitely has an 'adventure' feel to it and isn't for everyone. Great time of year to hit it, with the extended light.
