    Trails In Thursday's Snow (T.I.T.S. Thursday night ride)

    Just doing what we do:

    a) hydrate
    b) confirm hydration level
    c) ride bikes!
    d) regroup on trail to ensure hydration levels are optimal
    e) ride bikes!
    f) recover at Ironworks by rehydrating

    The Importants:
    - Roll out of Ironworks parking at 6:30 MST, be there early to prep (if you know what I'm saying)
    - Head to Green Mountain for some MTB-ing fun
    - Return to Ironworks and request tots

    I like your focus on hydration. It's important for optimal performance.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    This seems worthy of my re-hydration time

    This hydration of which you speak sounds intriguing... and the bike thing too!

    This is likely worthy of my time.

    Looks like I might have 1-2 takers from work joining. One guy brought lights with him to town, and I have a light for the other. Anyone have spare lights in case some other want to join us?

    Most likely in!

    Full Trucker, I can give up my bar light if needed. They'll need thick bars as my light is the Magic Shine rubber mount style.

    I want to come north and hydrate but waiting for dirt. Last week I spent more time on my knees and back than Monica Lewinsky. I'd love a RED epic, but would settle for the Canon MK5d that I really want. Heck I'd settle for the D70.

    ^^That is awesome.

    But I'm still hoping for a high bike to hike ratio. I suppose the hydration may help if that is not the case.

    I bet we do pretty good. You can always fall in behind the fatbikers and let them blaze the trail.

    Re: Trails In Thursday's Snow (T.I.T.S. Thursday night ride)

    Despite the horrible news before roll out & down a good man, we still pedaled.
    He wanted us to pedal. So we rode one for him.

    Magic Tron light show made for an illuminating ride!
