    Cool-blue Rhythm Springs night ride 2/27/13

    Can it be done?...
    I thought about Red Rocks or Stratton OS. Palmer and Ute are probably gonna be a mess, and there's probably too much snow up in the canyon.
    Any ideas or beta?

    I just got back from Ute and it has 1-2" in most places with some mud starting to develop in a few sunny spots. Right now it is that tiring snow that the wheels sink into. Probably would be awesome on a fatbike right now.

    If you guys do go snow shoeing does anyone have an extra pair?

    I could go for some more Epic Trail (and the other usual suspects at Stratton). My gut feel is that they would be in better condition than Red Rocks, but I haven't been south of Briargate so I'm not sure how snowy/muddy it is down there. I'm not against Red Rocks though if the trails are in good shape.

    From what I recall, it sounds like we could have some more weather by the middle of next week...

    Well Stratton it is!
    Cool, get to ride the proclaimed epic trail again. So lets meets at the parking lot at the bottom of the chutes at 6pm.
    We'll definitely have to keep an eye out for the weather and make changes accordingly.

    So, does this mean your riding with us?

    I have a handlebar light you can use, just let me know and I'll bring it.

    EDIT: I will be there. I didn't see the HUGE 2/27/13 in the title.
    I will require a light. Don't think my PETZL Head lamp is going to cut it.

    We should all get Klunkers for CMSP, Red Rocks and such. Talk about adding a new level to night riding with coaster brakes and rigid at night!!

    I might make it. Don't have a light, but have a headlamp or two.

    FWIW, Gold Camp has been pretty good since Thursday.

    High Drive was a HOOT on Thursday in 5-7" of new fresh snow. A little tougher Friday, and is pretty bumpy now, with all the boot-steps.

    Hope to see you guys out there.

    I will be in attendance, and recommend that we go bigger than smaller. I will bring a handlebar light for my Indian brother Dancesatmoonrise. I hope that there is some grus to crush, see you Wednesday!

    Looks like I'm a maybe again... Yesterday my oldest was diagnosed with a double ear infection, sinus infection, and had early signs of an eye infection. Then my wife had another ovarian cyst rupture. If all the meds do their jobs I might be able to make it.

    Nope, they keep me on my toes. Thankfully I am able to work from home so I can help when needed.

    It looks like some clouds are over the canyon. Is it snowing down your way Arin?

    HA, if Spritney Brears was my ol' lady. I would never have to do anything again. I figure she matches my riding style. Fast, get's around, love's going down and has a hard time getting back up.
