    New question here. This weeks where to night ride in the springs thread.......

    Any of you fellas have any interest in riding on Wed.? The weather guessers are saying cold and snowy leading up to it and the night of. So the question is, if you want to ride where? Or should we push it a day to the right and see if the weather is better on Thur. Thoughts?

    I would like to suffer on Wed. I can not ride Thur and will understand if others are not interested in a suffer-fest. If we do ride Wed and receive moisture I recommend the canyon again, I am still dreaming of grusmosis.

    With ya 100% except for one small detail early Thursday morning which pretty much is going to keep me home Wed night. : (

    So probably won't see you guys on this one. Weekend and next week - good to go.

    Hey Jack,

    Keep in touch with me depending on the road conditions--it might not be worth your time driving down on I-25 if we get some weather since it tends to turn into a parking lot. You will enjoy having the Enduro for this ride.

    If you're able to make, it, exit I-25 at Cimarron (hwy 24) and take a left at the ramp. Drive to 21st Street (the second stop light) and take a left. Go up the hill and take a right on Lower Gold Camp Rd (at the top of the hill). Drive about a mile to to 4way stop at Bear Creek Rd. and take a left. Drive about another mile and you will see a water tower on the right hand side of the street--we'll meet at the parking area across the street from that water tower. BTW, cell reception at the water tower isn't very good so you'll have a hard time reaching us after about 5:45.

    I hope you can make it!

    Yes, you seem to come on all of the gnarly weather rides . I don't remember if we've ever ridden Section 16 with you, but it should be in epic shape tomorrow if we get the precip they are calling for. Just allow a little extra time to surf through the morons on the Interstate on your way down.

    In honor of Jack making the trek down from Denver I would like to suggest climbing High Drive to the saddle and play Black Jack before Palmer/Section 16. I will bring the cards everyone bring a buck.

    Depending on the temps I'd probably be down for this. Hopefully it will not be as cold as last week!...

    Freezing rain already? The weather forcasters are saying that it's going to be nasty this evening. They're saying that we'll be having wind gust up to 45mph with snow mixed in. I'm thinking, no thank you...
    I know that some of you will still want to ride but if anyone wants to meet for a beer and some food instead let me know.

    I wussed out because of the wind on Sunday so I'm extra energized to ride tonight. Let's make the call later this afternoon when we can see what things look like.

    How do you know when a weather man is lying?

    When his lips are moving!!!

    I had to cut the lunch ride short. It was fun riding in the snow, but Ute is a mud pit right now. I wish I could have hit Section 16 on my lunch....that would have been fun.

    I am still up for it - the weather report I am looking at just shows snow, 31 deg and windy - light spring blizzard. It just lightly snowing up here. If it's that bad down there call it. Nick? K? If you are still riding let me know. I was planning on bailing on work at 3 so I could be on the road by 4.

    Velominati ? The Rules

    #5 and #9... i'll come drink but if people are riding i'll join!

    "Fair-weather riding is a luxury reserved for Sunday afternoons and wide boulevards. Those who ride in foul weather – be it cold, wet, or inordinately hot – are members of a special club of riders who, on the morning of a big ride, pull back the curtain to check the weather and, upon seeing rain falling from the skies, allow a wry smile to spread across their face. This is a rider who loves the work."

    Ya know, the best rides I've had all year have started out in questionable weather (and frequently stay in questionable weather). I'm in for riding, and I'm really stoked for some hero traction!
