    Springs weekend ride

    Since I missed our weekly 'night' ride I need to get out for a weekend ride. I know some others wanted to ride this weekend too so I figured to make it easier I'd start a new thread.

    I know we were planning on riding Red Rocks but this weekend it will probably be crowded and we'd need Jay to take us on the route he described anyway. So where do you want to ride? I don't really care, I'll ride anywhere.

    It looks like Sunday will work best for me but could possibly do Saturday if that works out better for everyone else. So where/when do you guys want to ride?

    I have never ridden Jones or 666 so that would be fun. Monument is always a good time too. My car only has 2 racks up top so I can't really help much with shutling. The trail should be in nice shape though.

    Yeah, if we can start at 9:00AM, I am probably in for this as well--gotta check with the boss though.

    So the plan as I understand it so far is to vehicle assist point-to-point (just to be clear, there is a lot of climbing on this route so I don't want to confuse it with a "shuttle").

    I'd say to meet at Rudy's at 9:00, but it's not cool to take their parking spaces all day. What about the 31st Street trailhead of Red Rocks Open Space just south of Rudy's?

    Where is the Ghetto trailer when you need it?

    The Sequoia can hold 6-7 depending on bikes and rack availability. I have a 3 bike hitch rack (dependent on bike design) and can put 4 bikes on racks on the roof.

    If we only had a designated driver or two...

    We could also start further up

    Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic...

    I'll bring an old blanket so we can do shuttle monkey style with bikes on rcjonessnp175's tailgate. Fair warning though rcjones: the road we are going up is a 4x4 road. It's nothing that an F-150 4x4 will have any problems with, but since it is a rental car just wanted to throw that out.

    I think we should be able to fit everyone in so far between the two trucks, so we would just need one more 4x4 to drive the drivers back up.

    I have been wanting to do this ride for a long time now, but are you guys going to do it Sat or Sun? Sun dosent work for me since I have to work that day. My xterra can shuttle back up to the start but can only hold 2 bikes so no bike shuttle.

    So it looks like we have 9 total people so far which is still doable between the Sequoia and the F-150, but we need one more 4x4 to haul the drivers back up to their cars. Alternatively, we could drive to the camp ground and ride from there, but that will add an additional ~500 feet of climbing.

    I can do either day but say we stick with Sunday.

    Besides weather looks slightly better on Sun. Less chance of rain and a bit cooler.

    In summary: it looks like 9 people total if I'm counting correctly. We should still good on fitting everyone in the Sequoia and the f-150. Short Bus can drive the two original drivers back up to the trailhead so we don't need to do the climb from the camp ground. I think we're almost at capacity for the ride though unless someone else has a 4x4.

    Meet at:
    31st Street Trailhead for Red Rocks Open Space south of Rudy's BBQ (not the trailhead off of Hwy 24 near the freeride park) at 9:00am on Sunday.

    Please bring (mostly common sense stuff):
    Beer
    $ for the driver's gas
    any tie downs you have laying around (might be helpful for the F-150)
    Rain gear

    Call Paul and see what he's up to. There should be room for you too Joe--we can cram as necessary. 10 is the max though I think unless we get another vehicle (don't you own a truck?)

    So are we talking Mt Baldy too or start at Jones dh?

    If were doing Jones down then we could park off Gold camp at the jeep rd and ride up, then any veh could be used to retrieve shuttle veh's(I volunteer for this if so). If we drive up to Jones trailhead or Mt baldy I don't have a veh for that.

    I haven't been up there this season but Pipeline was pretty chewed up last season. If some want to do pipeline and the stunts then we could do 2 groups and meet at Jones park. I don't have the bike for that stuff tho.

    Take i-25 north till monument exit, hang a left and follow that straight all the way threw the "old down town" of monument and then hang a left when the road comes to a dead end "T" follow that down a short bit and take a left on mt herman road (acrossed the street from a park) then follow that up and you will see a mt herman trail head sign on you left hand side at the corner of nursery and mt herman road. Im in a silver subaru and the other rider will be in a xttera . Hope to see ya there.
