    Springs Night Ride 3/6/13?

    What do you guys think? I definitely want to ride, but a projected high of 57 on Wednesday could make that difficult.

    Any guesses about what could be rideable? Maybe Pulpit Rock? I'm thinking that the trail above campus at UCCS would be good, as well as the trail from campus down to Il V's.

    I just took the dog for a short Ute walk and there is still some decent muddy spots. I'm guessing it is worse in the shaded areas. Pulpit sounds like fun though.

    Pulpit does pretty good in wet conditions, much better than palmer or Ute...

    Ya maybe too depends on trail conditions. We got lots of snow today on ft carson but it melts uber fast down there so cmsp should be good to go. Ill keep a eye on it just in case

    Yeah I'd be down for some state park too. Pdubs and Rich, let us know what things look like between now and Wednesday and we can decide what is going to be the best to ride.

    Springs Night Ride 3/6/13?-capture.jpg

    I'd like to ride Wed. As you can see, we will be riding in warm weather. Unlike last week, the mud will still be mud. We should choose wisely.

    Totally agree. It sounds chezzy, but we could always ride the Sante Fe trail. As long as wheels are turned and beers are consumed.

    OMG, I was talking about this. I love the Sante Stinky at night. We can leave from Criterium parking lot and head north. We only have to avoid the sticky spot under Woodman area, which is easily done. Second thought: leave from Il Vic and have thoughts of pizza and beers.

    Monday Cheyenne Canon area report:
    1-2" wet snow, mostly melted and gone by sundown today.
    Gold Camp - dirt to parking lot - some dry, some mud, very little snow.
    High Drive - south side - some snow, but almost all melted out.

    Will try to hit BH, CJ, or Chutes tomorrow and post.

    Tuesday,Cheyenne area:
    Some snow on GC late morning, mostly puddles by early afternoon.
    Snow on High Drive really easy to get through, melting well by early pm.
    Jacks: More snow that I would have liked so didn't ride it.
    Chutes: A guy I bumped into came up that way and said it was pretty muddy.

    Sunny this afternoon and tomorrow's sunny and warmer, so things could dry out by tomorrow night.

    Congrats on the new bike! Are you riding it tomorrow night?
    Also a little bird told me that Buckhorn and Jacks are still snowy in spots but mostly in the shade but all of it is ride-able and good to go. Just thought I'd mention that...

    Here Here! I'm bringing the geared bike and am open to either of those ideas. Let's decide tomorrow.

    Still warming up out there. Forecast seems to be the same with warm temps all the way through 8pm. I'm still up for anything: Sante Fe, Cheyenne Canyon, etc. We just need a couple more people to chime in.

    Does anyone need lights tonight? I have a couple decent lights that I can charge up if I get a request.

    I recommend we meet at Il Vic's and hit Pulpit Rock. If Pulpit is full of muck we go to plan B the Sante Fe.

    Tennubs FTW! I think that's a great plan. See you guys at Il V's at 6:00! Naturally, we're talking the Il V's on Nevada, not downtown in case anyone is confused.

    I'm a weak maybe. My phone died on me today so I have to go to the Verizon store after work and plead, yell, cry... or whatever I have to do to get a replacement without spending any money.
