    Where are you riding this weekend?

    Trying to figure out where to go ride on Sunday. Where is everyone else headed?

    Man, I'll have to add SBFL next year! Looks awesome. I'm hitting up Heil on Saturday but thinking of something around Breck or Vail for Sunday.

    Love me some White Ranch. Had to do a double take on the tandem comment but your profile says it all... I've seen tandem mountain bikes and didn't think anyone actually took them to the mountains... so kudos.

    I hit Young's Gulch (outside Fort Collins) the other day and it was so nice I'm thinking I'll do it again.

    Somewhere above 10,000' that's free of Sunday ****** bag traffic, weekend warriors, and knights that say nee.

    Did one today, and I'll do another tomorrow.

    Kenosha pass to Georgia pass was great today. All was good and dry, except for a little snow drift up high and a few downed trees in the way.

    I won't lie, there are some trails that we avoid due to the amount of walking required (i.e. switchbacks and really techy). So yes, we do ride on trails. There are a handful of people on this board that have ridden with us and confirm that our tandem does in fact get used for its intended purpose.

    Yesterday the route ended up being White Ranch Belcher over to Golden Gate Canyon to Blue Grouse>Mule Deer>Elk>Raccoon>Mule Deer and then back to White Ranch. We only rode Belcher b/c the goal was to get in some good climbing and be back before noon.

    We ended up with over 6,000 ft of climbing with about 5200 of that in the first 20 miles. Nice part is that the 2nd half of the miles were realatively easy.

    Someone said post pics.

    Looks refreshing right about now


    Went uphill for days...


    It's all downhill from here...


    ...but what's this? I've seen this crap far too many times!
    I need double-ply tires on everything. (Patched this w/ClifBar wrapper: folded & duct taped for support over top a radial tire patch glued over the tear.)



    Mine #1


    I didn't sign up for this.


    Mine #2


    Mine #3

    Patch = successful.
    Made it back w/out a flat!
    Les grimpées, je m'en fou!

    I call that the "White Tennie Zone". A nice place to avoid on weekends.

    Great stuff in this thread.

    Fixed bikes all day Saturday, rode Sol Vista today. No pictures, but I did ride on flats today for the first time in about 5 years and managed to not annihilate my shins and have fun. Lots of Silky and Tron laps.
