    weekday a.m. rides - Boulder / Lyons / JeffCo

    Who's game for weekday a.m. rides in the 60 minutes from Boulder range?

    I love a good technical ride, like the rock garden at Hall, Apex, and some other trails that will remain anonymous.

    I've ridden with Lidarman, Kitchenmare, DaveM, etc. Give me a shout.

    i'm game. i have many weekdays off. how early/how long? i tend to go higher up on my weekdays, to get the the cooler temps, and avoid the lower down OS parks once things turn hot.

    edit: i'm actually off and free to ride this thursday and friday. oh, and next monday.

    though i might thinking of heading up for a weekday keystone session that day, if i can find any other takers.....
    made a promise to ms. scrub to not hit lift assist riding while solo, and that i'd wear all the armour.

    I've also got some weekdays free somewhat sporadically, post up here before you go and I'd be game for some cooler AM rides. I'm heading to check out Blue Sky tomorrow at 0800...

    It's me dude. When are you ready to hook up? Saturday?

    The 575 is awesome - the Chris King hub and Talas are best new components, and the lighter frame has really improved my uphill technical.

    Let's hook up.

    I'm interested in these weekday AM rides.

    I'm up for driving to local and/or high country rides, and maybe even the occasional lift-assisted ride...

    I live in Boulder, if that matters.

    Thursday? Sourdough area stuff ~9-10am? Anyone?

    Or even earlier to head up and ride something up in Summit? (i'm more inclined to do that if it's more than just me, to split some gas cost ;0)

    I'm inclined that way too since Sourdough is about all I've ridden lately.

    thursday? up high? how early are you willing to get going? i can be leaving my place about 6am. 5 if i really wanted to push early. we'd be up in there nice and early, and avoid morning traffic.......

    i don't know a ton of riding up there, but the stuff i have done has been pretty good. exploratory day around the CT/tiger run/keystone area?

    6?... GASP. 5? What are you thinking man? It's not like First Tracks, or anything.

    pffft. gets me up there nice and early, for a nice long day of riding. meaning, you can finish earlier, and get home without dealing with crappy traffic. remember, i have more of that to deal with to get home than you do! and it's about 40 minutes minimum for me to even get down to the on ramp to 70. thus, the early start times.

    hard to believe, i know. hey, i was up at 6 last saturday, and i was already up in breck!
    i sleep less and less as i get older, it seems.

    disclaimer: i'm not up that early all the time. just when i need to be out and up 70 early to beat traffic/get a long day in the saddle.

    coming from longmont, i either have to leave before 7 or after 830 or so. otherwise 119 and 93 (easiest ways for me to get to the 70 ramp) suck ass traffic wise, and add much more time to the drive. so it's just easier to get up early. especially once the afternoon t-storms start happening in earnest.

    FYI, mr scrubs. Mtn traffic is minimal on a thurs...so avoiding said traffic is a non-issue...5am...freaking nurse hours.

    it isn't the mtn traffic, it's the traffic from longmont down to the 70 ramp that gets me. 119/93 is the easiest way for me to get there, and if i hit commute traffic on them, it takes twice as long. so it's just eassier to leave earlier or after morning commute hours. earlier is better; then i can get a long ride without as much worry about afternoon storms while riding up high.

    If this heat doesn't let up soon, I'm up for a high county ride

    I haven't even gone out on my usual after work rides in 2 weeks now

    I'm dying to ride Blue Sky, but in this heat ??

    High country is sounding really good. I'm thinking Kenosha should be good to go REAL soon.

    Well it's all pretty simple really. Just move your ass on down to 80401. Then we have depart at a sociable hour, and return on one too. Win-win.

    ah, but the catch is: i actually like living north of the metro. most of the time.
    if jen and i stick around, we probably would. but the likely hood of that is pretty slim in the long run. boston bound, we still are.

    got to take the rear wheel of the hardtail in tomorrow for some lovin'. broke two spokes the other day on a not so smooth landing. i'll have a nice true job done on it, better than i can do at least.

    i'll swipe the big bike rear wheel if needed for thursday; i don't want or need to ride 7x7" of bike on all the smooth tiger run stuff.

    You're not going to Boston. Says me and three mafiosi, Guido, TomTom, and Hector. It's best not to argue with them.
