    I can smell the fresh air. It has been too wet for me.

    Looks like a hell of a day. Even though I've got a snow bike, I'm itching to head out on the dirt roads again.
    I'm covered in beer.

    Oooohh....that's a fun overnighter I like to do in the spring from Woodland Park. Down 24 to Santa Fe (with a slight detour to the AFA for some singletrack) and then on to Monument and whatever that mexican restaurant is for food and drinks. Then up to the end of the trail to stealth camp. Back to Monument and the Waffle House for breakfast and then up and over whatever road that is that connects to Rampart Range and back home.

    Nice, I did something similar last summer but was a day trip. From my house in the Springs rode the Sante fe up to Monument, thru town to Mt Herman rd(the one you mentioned), did some singletrack at Mt Herman then climbed MH rd west to Rampart range rd. Then south around the reservoir on RR rd with a detour for a section of singletrack at the res. loop, then down to Garden of the gods and some road to the casa.

    BTW, love to ride AFA too on the La cruz

    Great bike in some great terrain! I wish we had more dirt roads where I live.

    I did the loop last Sunday with a friend but we went to Woodland Park down through Green Mtn Falls to cut off some of the highway.
    Lots of shooters up on Rampart, it was like a battle ground from Mt Herman to the turn off to Woodland Park.
    Last year I did this ride solo during the week and there was very few shooters and a nice quite ride.
