    Springs Evening ride 10/2

    So I know palmer park came up last week, but I think we should try and shuttle pikes peak while we still can. Were gonna have warm temps this week!

    Have fun! Jaenette is in Texas this week so I need to be a more responsible parent than that ride will allow me to be. If anyone else is in a time crunch, I am going to ride Palmer Park on Wednesday evening.

    Good luck Jimmy. I am unfortunately out for either option. I need to get around for my San Fran trip. At least I'll be riding in Marin on Friday.

    Hey Kristian--How about an old fashioned inflexable ride? 4:30! Be there or catch the group mid ride!

    I could catch mid ride at 5:45ish, but my life just doesn't work with leaving work at 4:00 anymore--especially not when I'm trying to close the quarter out at work.

    For anyone not familiar with Palmer Park (Simon), we meet at the trailhead at the intersection of Paseo Rd and Chelton Rd just inside the gate. If that lot is full, we park on Chelton just outside of the gate. Meet at 6:00 and bring lights!

    Shawn, if you're going to be there early, swing by that lot at 6:00 and we can meet up for a little bit before you have to bail.

    Springs Evening ride 10/2

    Sounds like a Palmer ride is in order...... Pikes peak is tempting but it's short timing to work out the logistics.

    I'm in for Palmer.

    I think I know the answer already but will this be flowy or chunky?

    LOL! I like it! So the real question is if I should bring the Knolly or the Karma bike. I'm kinda feeling cosmic, but that doesn't mean I don't want to rock out on the rocks! Chunkarmarama!

    I asked Julio and he said... Well he didn't say anything it is a dog after all. But we are in for Palmer! It would be fun to ride the 24Hr course.

    See you guys there at 6.

    Hey Shawn,
    Are you still rolling out from Paseo and Chelton at 4:30pm. If yes I can meet you there.

    Kip- yep heading over at 4:30. Just a reminder, I'm on a 150mm bike with flat pedals. I will not be trying to keep up on the uphills! ;-)

    Yeah, it's hard to argue with trails and temps we had last night! That might have been the last "shorts and a T-shirt" night ride for a while.
