    You know I'd love to go, but going to study for my tests the whole weekend...

    If you end up going, post a creative report on the board. Make stuff up if you need to.

    Maybe, but since the forecast is showing below-freezing morning local temps, the foothills should be rideable. I'm definitely going to ride tomorrow morning (unless it snows), but I'm leaning strongly towards a local ride, rather than making the 2 hour round trip to the Owyhees. (Cue the posts about my "tight scheduling requirements" here.)

    Normally I'd be game. Loved it last time, but wife n I have a weekend alone without the kids, so I'm hoping to spend more time indoors...
    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    D - If you're not headed to 20, are you interested in a local ride instead?

    I'm interested in a later local ride. I'll head out after noon (try to hit the heat of the day). Either local trails or road bike depending on the weather.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Nice, g-roadie time...I gotta get me one dangit.

    When my wife is wealthy I'll quit my job and ride with you 10x a week since your boss still hasn't figured out what a slacker you are and still keeps you on the payroll.

    Hey bro good job on the studying. I apologize to Nels and everyone for posting this ride since planning ahead I ended up needing time just like you, to study for a goal, my iNET+ cert. I'm in the mode of wanting as much marketable credentials and app SW skills as I can learn and retain! Buckle down and get that RE License

    I sent an email to GB since he was riding local. Nels and I rode local - up the freeway to connector up Bucktail then the Mil Res fireroad (what is the name of that somebody), then up 5 (nice climb) down part of 4 and Sidewinder. Some muddy and mucky spots but most of it was clean or "loamy". May ride again today local......

    Twisted and I had a 4hr discussion about spackle, urban sprawl, 2crankheads, the return of 70s style autos, turrets syndrome, sarcasmk and our favorite color H2 while touring scenic Ada, Gem, and Canyon County. Of course, we drove my H2 the whole time.

    Did you know there is an unlocked porta-pottie on Purple Sage Rd?

    Short ride yesterday (Sat.) AM with the Lost River crew, and an hour and a half solo effort on the singlespeed this morning. Parked at the end of the pavement on Mtn. Cove road, and started with the Reserve - Central Ridge - Bucktail - Ridgecrest - Mtn Cove loop, followed by a Connector - Freeway - Red Sands - Hulls Gulch - Freeway - Sidewinder - Freeway - Connector - Mtn. Cove "ultra-Fred" extended loop. Things seemed to stay a bit firmer for longer this AM than yesterday. By 9 AM yesterday, it was getting soft and squooshy, but today the trails were still really nice when I finished up at 9:45. The best part about today - I rode pretty much every trail between Rocky Canyon Road and 8th Street (except Shanes, 5, and Devils Slide) and saw NOT ONE other rider. Heaven...
