    Springs Evening Ride 7/20/11

    What do we want to ride this week? The forecast is calling for a 30% chance of afternoon showers on Wednesday--I wonder if that will happen or not. If no rain, I'm kinda jonzen for some Palmer Park, but I'm up for anything.

    I am out this week. My wife tore her meniscus. I need to help out since lifting kids is against doctors orders for her. On a happier note I might be picking up the Enduro this weekend.

    Yeah, we usually meet at the parking lot just inside the west gate with the locked bathrooms (kinda by the stables off of Paseo and Chelton). I'll probably be there a little before 6:00pm, but let's aim to start at 6:00. If anyone is coming later than that, PM me and we can arrange a later meeting point via cell phone.

    Once I get the Enduro we'll have to have another Templton day... No better way to compare that bike against the Stumpy.

    You won't ever need to twist my arm to get me to ride Templeton--it's my favorite trail in the whole wide world! In fact, it's kinda what I had in mind for the ride anyway if everyone else was cool with that. So now the real question: Clockwise or counterclockwise????

    Keep an eye on this thread this afternoon! They are saying it's a 40% chance of rain, but I'm guessing it's going to be a 100% chance of lighting. We may need to decide on a Plan B option at the last minute.

    Anyone have any ideas on what Plan B should be? It seems like we've been hitting the canyon a lot lately. rcjonessnp175, Colo Springs E, and bmaddock (and anyone else planning on showing up who I don't already have contact info for), PM me your cell phones in case we make a change offline.

    Monument

    Yesterday we had a killer lightning storm role over AFA round 4:30, by 6 pm storms were off the mountain heading east. Might be a good choice to ride closer to the mountains

    Wish I could join but the taxi must keep moving.
    Have fun.

    Dam,
    Bikes are FUN

    Yeah, we had the same system fly over our house. I was planning on cooking a pizza on the grill but decided to use the oven when I saw the storm. It rained lightly for about 2 minutes, but the lighting was pretty bad--I wouldn't want to be on an exposed mesa like PP during a storm like that.

    Weather update @ 2:15: It looks like the storms are breaking north over Pikes Peak today. There is another system building behind Pikes Peak at the moment and I'll continue to track how it breaks. As of yet, there has been no precipitation anywhere per NOAAs storm total radar. Plan A is still in effect.

    Good luck guys. I hope you can get your Templeton ride in. I'm not going to lie.. I'm jealous. I did get a Ute lunch ride in. That place is a sand pit now.
