    Are you looking for current conditions? Or just general info?

    Putting together what I know from what others have said, the latest info is probably close to this.

    Deer Creek/Waterton/Rox/Mt. Falcon = snow/ice/mud due to their location in valleys
    Apex is supposedly rideable, but only in parts, and with some black ice (I believe). Chimney gulch is supposedly similar condition to Apex (there is another thread on that).
    Green Mtn/Dakota/MW Loop seems to be everyone's best bet as Green Mountain has been fantastic lately, although it apparently rained a bit last night so conditions might be poor right now?
    White Ranch I believe is OK, or at least someone said that previously
    Hall Ranch is/was rideable last weekend too.

    Of course, I can only vouch personally for MW/DR/GM loop was outstanding on Tuesday.

    I did the GM -> Zorro -> DK etc. loop on Sunday and yeah it was in great shape.
    I'm looking for something else to ride also and was hoping someone had some ideas/info.

    Hey, we are riding saturday at about 10:00am locally here in the Golden/JeffCo area, we got a little rain here last night after I rode the hogback/Red Rocks yesterday, and at lunch here I can see it's drying out good, wasn't enough rain to really mess things up.

    So we will check trail condition in several places, if I can personally, or hear, I will post here, but worst case, the hogback won't be any worse that it was yesterday, and yesterday it was in good shape, Red Rocks trail too. So we will ride that if nothing else.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    That's cool, anytime around then is good, just call me when he get's there. I can get to anywhere in about fifteen minutes (...except Hell, that's a lifelong project).

    Dan, you riding too?

    Anyone else?

    Cheers,

    Thinking about showing. I am wanting to hook up with coolhandluchs to see about getting his trainer and I think he is going on this ride.

    I'm fat, slow, and just barely removed from being a flatlander so I'd be bringing up the rear but I always like to ride new trails and with new people.

    Excuse the newbie, but is the location Dakota Ridge/MW/Red Rocks?

    Yeah, that's the default location.

    Come on over and ride tomorrow, Dan can bring that trainer here and you can check it out. I'll call him later.

    I'd like to get in on that ride but my main focus is just getting my bike built. If I find a front shifter solution and get my brake issues dealt with by Sat I'll be happy. I'm also planning a late night of poker so 10am is probably a little unrealistic If it looks like the weather is going to hold maybe I'll get the fat pig on the mountain Sunday.

    If you get over here tomorrow morning before 9:30 or so, I can fix it for you, got plenty of washers for going the shim route. And this left X-7 trigger shifter is still here if you can't find anything else.

    Dave,

    Thanks A LOT for the offer, I really appreciate you offer to help. I'm sure I can get the rotor/caliper shimmed tonight but the gripshift thing is turning out to be a PITA. I also think even if I get the bike finished and tuned tonight it would be difficult for me to get out of Boulder ready to ride at 9am (the wife's out of town so I'm going to be out late tonight).

    Thanks again for the offer and I'll definitely hook up with you soon for a ride.

    Cheers,
    Mason

    I can tell the condition of Green Mountain by the sogginess of my front lawn. Very little bit of rain yesterday - sog reading of zero...

    Sick today (probably s1ngltrack's fault - I blame him for making all the Front Range technical sections that I struggle with look easy so I am blaming him for being sick too ) no-go for me - enjoy yourselves.
