    Where did you ride this weekend?

    We hit Hall again on Saturday afternoon, right as the wind died down WKD-RDR had a shock malfunction (stuck down) . We stopped to try this line at the beginning of the rock garden:

    thump:

    up


    down


    me

    up


    down

    Our dog was with us and riding. We just gave her water from camelbaks. You end near the cars easily so we just dropped back there occasionally as well.

    she did freak out on the wooden bridges on the freeride trail.

    Freeride is the name of the trail, not so much the style. It was fun with techie sections but nothing mandatory that will hurt you.

    This weekend, for the first time, met some other MTBR members at Hall! Awesome ride today, little muddy, but the rock garden being dry made up for it. Also, GREAT first ride for my freshly build Norco Six!

    The Beach. 64 degrees made the shade feel nice. It's been awhile since I've looked for shade while resting.
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    Saturday - Hall Ranch with the shock malf(x). It really hurt not being able to bomb the rock garden with gravitys' wonderful assistance.
    Today - Hiked Berthoud Pass over and over, and found mucho fluff.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    I rode my fixed gear on some mostly dry roads. 30 miles Saturday, 38 today (Sunday). Nice... not thrilling... but nice. I tend to get my adrenline on a snowboard during the winter and use my bikes to build fitness when I can, but I've got to say I'm jealous of all the Hall/Pueblo pics.

    Hall on Sunday....parking lot through the rock garden was snow and mud free but the rest wasn't.


    Top loop was snow covered and still pretty much unrideable.

    Hall & DBB/BS

    I hit the rock garden at Hall on Saturday. Since I typically go OTB about once per season I decided to get it out of the way early this year. Man, it was waaay windier than I liked, though the wind subsided once I reached the bench. Good times.

    On Sunday I went to Devil's Backbone and hit a little bit of Blue Sky. I'm always amazed at how full the parking lot can be and how desolate the DBB loops are. It was a great afternoon ride with just a little wind and lots of sun.
    I've got nothing witty to say....

    Ridin' and Makin' Turns

    I rode Devil's Backbone on Saturday (worked myself over good on the SS) and tele skied at A-Basin Sunday (worked myself over again!) Super duper fun both days! It was nice being in temps that weren't bitter cold.

    Uh, let's just say that Dakota Ridge will not be ready until we've a had a good full week of warm weather - or a full day of freezing weather.
    Now with more vitriol!

    I think we talked to you while you were sitting on the bench....we were trying to knock mud off our tires.

    California

    Pretty much alternated between shovelling and skiing. That house has an itty bitty driveway but lots of deck space.

    Sierra Nevada at 5,000 ft....

    Friday afternoon after an "OMG, Great!" day. Loads of new and hardly anyone else out there. Still freshies at 2:30 in the afternoon.

    cali3.jpg
    Finally, some sun on Saturday! Nice.

    This had to have been the cloudiest and wettest 6 days period I have ever spent in California. It was nice to see some green down in the central valley and bay area....
