    See you guys May 30th and 31st.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    I will also be there May 30-31. Can't wait to see what you have flagged out, Nick
    .




    Strava: turn off your dork logger when you're not on sanctioned trails.

    If none of the dates in the OP fit your calendar but you still have a tinge of guilt then look at the Volunteer Outdoor Colorado calendar. These are good projects since you can demonstrate to the hikers and other granola eating fanatics that bikers aren't all jerks, plus they usually have good food, entertainment, beer, and there are some great locations to go visit.
