    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!

    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.

    Curt Gowdy Thursday, Friday & Saturday. I learned a few things this weekend.

    Wyoming residents really hate Coloradans. They call us 'green taggers'.
    The Park Rangers have a similar attitude, although they're a bit more professional about it.

    Bagged a few fun rides.

    When I lived up there in the 80s we just called the Coloradans Greenies.

    I had my first e-room visit in several years Saturday. Slightly gory pictures on a separate page so that the squeamish can skip them:

    Interesting, I over heard that too. The campers next to us (let's just say there were a lot of city-hicks with bone to pick) had a lot of hatred toward the 'greenies'. I heard that name too. They were complaining about the fact that Curt Gowdy used to be their play ground until the biking trails went in and brought in all the 'liberal' **** #### @@@'s. They played a few practical jokes on us even though we tried to be as nice as possible.

    As my neighbor put it "They have a worse hatred toward us as we do Texans'. HAA HAA HAA.

    I've met a lot of locals on bikes up there and never had a problem but I see how the campgrounds might be a different crowd... to bad... I'm still planning a long weekend up there next month. Hopefully we don't get to much "greenie" hate.

    Thats a rough way to end your day!

    My wife rode Frontier-Cottonwood creek on Sat - we were wondering if there was a formal/informal ride going on - lots of carbon 29ers and peeps not breathing hard enough.

    It's like people anywhere, there are lots of different ones. Some multi-generation natives will give you the shirt off their backs, some relative new-comers will spread the negativity.

    Among the hook-and-bullet crowd it seems pretty universal. They usually won't give anyone good advice about where to hunt or fish or what fly to use or whatever, but with greenies it's imperative. They'll go out of their way to send the greenies to fish in irrigation ditches.

    One thing that tends to be true up there though--if you're broken down by the side of the road people will stop. Even if they give you a bunch of crap they'll stop and help you. Everything is too far away up there. They look out for each other. If you're a broken down greenie, somebody will be telling stories about what a clueless dweeb you are in the local tavern that night, but you'll be helped.

    Aside from the yokels, how were the conditions? Lots of smoke? Thinking of heading there this weekend.

    Interesting - last time we were there, neighbor campers were getting all upset about our kids riding their bikes up and down the roads next to the campsites. Didn't occur to me it might be greenie hate!
