    Riding Partner Wanted!

    Hey Guy and Gals, I've been riding by myself a lot lately and would like to ride with someone else for a change. I'm an advanced intermediate level rider(or so I think) and I ride a Specialized S-works FSR.

    Recent rides are:

    Poison spider mesa on 11-24-12, 3hrs round trip w/ lunch.

    Eagles Wing, today 11-28-12, 1hr total. I rode up Pet-E-Kes to Eagles Wing. I had to walk the crazy down hill section on Eagles Wing.

    If you are interested in riding let me know. It doesn't matter what your gender or skill level is as long as you're willing to put up with me walking a few obsticles every now and then.

    I don't know if it makes a difference, but I'm a 33 yr old single male from Rifle, CO. HaHa! sounds like a personal add but whatever

    I'll be headed out to Fruita tomorrow 11-29-12 to ride Horsetheif Bench and maybe something on 18 rd too! Hit me up if you wanna ride!

    Thanks,

    Clint

    I hear ya man, sometimes it is good to have some company. With my weird work schedule it is hard to coordinate. If you are ever riding through Durango, holler at me.

    Check out the Endoholics group on Facebook. They ride every Thursday night at different spots in the valley and usually hang around for beers and food after. The Bike Shop has group rides on Wednesdays at the lunchloops leaving the lot at 6:30. We have a trail building day on 18rd this Saturday, come out and meet some new people.

    Sounds like at least a few of us are in the same boat. That's why I believe in trail comradory.
    JW- I'll check it out but I can't make the trail building session.

    Clint- I'm in Rifle too. Sounds like we may be similar levels. Let's ride sometimes. I'm down with Moab, Fruita, or hitting the single track here in Rifle. Hit me up sometime.

    Heckled- Thanks, I'll check out Endoholics too. Still trying to get more into the mtb community out here!

    I'm another Rifle rider, there is way more to ride here than you probably know about

    My schedule is pretty open for winter, so get ahold of me if you want to ride some local Rifle singletrack.

    Hey Clint and ColoSean, I'm here in Rifle as well. I've sent you a pm with my cell phone so feel free to text me and we can try to get in a ride sometime - as the weather and daylight permits.

    As Hank says there is some good stuff nearby... and potential for more good stuff if you are the creative type. There are a few riders in the area so we should all get together sometime for a group ride.

    Wow, there are a few of us out here. Plus, there are more that aren't on the board. Sweet. We may even need to set up a ride that ends at Sammy's (you know, to re-hydrate) or something?

    Yeah I tried to reply to your PM but it wouldn't let me, but took down your number. I work 7days on and 7off so I'll shoot you a txt next week. Looks like the weather has rolled in today.

    I almost stopped in there last night for an amber after my road ride. Also if anyone likes pounding pavement after work I ride nearly every night. Nothin' crazy but like 8-10 miles around Rifle.
