    Tuesday Springs Ride on Thursday?!?

    It doesn't look like Tuesday is going to be very good, unless we ride in the canyon. What do you think: Canyon on Tuesday or wait until Thursday when we have more options?

    I'm down with the canyon tomm, I think it's more fun to mix it up every week personally. We got around 8" snow here over the weekend so not sure how the canyon will be but I imagine it's the best option, do you think anything else will be ridable by Thurs??

    Nothing like coming home from 85 degree Austin, TX and just dying to ride and driving right into a snowstorm.

    Thursday may be optimistic, based on NOAA forcast. Unless of course you are talking about that place where you ride up that one trail, then the dirt road and up that other trail, and down the way you came ride. Or you could just ride Pwaylo.

    I'm just sayin...

    What's wrong with a bit of optimism. Thursday is the first day of spring after all.

    Two votes for Thursday, one vote for Tuesday, one doubter that even Thursday is ok and one guy who just wants to know which bike to bring--hardly a consensus....

    Tomorrow should be properly snowy in the canyon and Thursday might be half-assed snow in the canyon but no where else ridable. Tomorrow might be a better option if you look at it like that.

    However, this is hardly a quorum. Kurt? Joe? Paul? Rich? Jesse? Bueller?

    I'll really confuse things and say I can do Tuesday too. In fact, I'd be fine riding both days.

    Huh? I didn't think you folks rode anywhere but Palmer, on Tuesday's at 4:30:00:0000.

    (that's PM)



    (sharp)




    (don't be late)





    (don't even think of riding some other time)






    (or some other place)
    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    OK, command descision (which I always hate to do since I wouldn't want to appear inflexable): Let's ride tomorrow in the canyon and Thursday where ever works. I don't think we have time for the whole thing so we might have to do loops of stroodle.

    OK, it's settled. Thursday we meet up, catch the shuttle to either Porc or we meet up at Bartletts. The usual spot, by the toilets?

    I can make it, but it's going to be close, K. I didn't bring a bike because I wasn't sure if we were riding. That means I have to get out of work a bit early, drive home, grab a bike, and head your way. 1630 might be pushing it for me. Today might be a trials bike day.

    Side note: I ground the rear rim on the Echo. I figured that it would make a difference. I didn't think it would make THAT big of a difference! I can actually hope to objects without the fear of my rear brake slipping. Woo-hoo!

    Rick = fire starter

    No, I just didn't know if we were riding today over Thursday so I didn't bring a bike. The canyon sounds delicious, IMO. I just don't know that I can make it down in time.

    Yeah, it was a killer day wasn't it! I'm going to send you a Private Message. Look for it in the upper right hand part of the screen under the "Welcome Mojo Maestro" (in case you haven't used the PM function before).

    After you just harassed peeps for not showing up. Homers these days, I tell ya.

    Regardless of where the ride is, I'm on the pedals today. If that means the trials bike alone, fine. If that means hauling butt to get home and to the trail in time, fine.

    Rick and I just talked on the phone and decided that there will be something with the right amount of snow in the canyon to ride. Nicholas is probably coming, and I'm assuming that's it right?

    MH is probably not an option, eh Kurt? I'd be happy doing the canyon again, PP, or anything really.

    I would be amazed if PP is rideable by tomorrow (and strongly suggest we not consider it). I'd be up for the canyon again.
