    A little too far for regular rides but I would love to check out your area sometime. What's Robinson like?

    Hey, I live in Westfield. I usually don't ride in Westfield other than on the ridge. Are there trails at Stanley?

    I live in Westfield too, I help out with TM at Robinson and may have run into you there. I also ride Granville Gorge, Batchelor Street and CT riding spots a lot.

    I am not a speed demon by any means, take my time on thr climbs, have fun going down hill and if I come across a cool tail feature I have no qualms about stopping and hitting it multiple times. My goal is to have fun on the trail, could care less about times and average speed. If you want to hook up for a ride shoot me a PM.

    FYI - Robinson needs at least one more week to dry, please stay off the trail until then

    Do you live near the ridge? Provin Mt Is pretty much my backyard. Trail head is a 5 minute bike ride out my door. I use to ride there a lot, but not so much the past couple of years.

    The ridge is right off my neighborhood, so it's an easy ride out my door. Ride at Bachelor often? I'm more into descents than pedaling.

    After this snow goes away and the trails dry a bit, I'll be down for some local riding.

    Nah, we might be thinking of different ridges. I live near the ridges to the east of Barnes.

    I'm planning to be out in your area on 4/22 was hoping to hook up with some locals to check out a few of the awesome places I've seen and read about on here and other forums. Any regular Saturday rides happening at B Street or other places? Techy with fun descents=
