    9:30 bike ride at Redstone in Lyons

    Sorry for the late notice. If anyone is up for tromping around in the snow, a few of us locals are meeting at the shop at 9:30 this morning. Maybe Hall or maybe Picture Rock? Both are good to go if you don't mind punching thru snow here and there

    Too late,

    Dave,
    If you would have said something when I was in the shop yesterday I would have come up. I didn't see this until too late.
    Rob.

    Had I known that far in advance, Rob, I would've let you know. Plans were hatched last night over beers and finalized over bacon and eggs this morning.

    Conditions were winter perfect. Stay away when it warms up, though - Hall Ranch will be a soupy, muddy mess. Here's a few pics. The el cheapo espresso machine at the bike shop has been a great addition so far, too

    Note the pic with the gray, narrow singletrack where it looks like someone has shovelled snow. The county has resurfaced the tread with a limestone like crusher fine composition, just like on Wild Turkey and the bottom of Picture Rock. Should be a good addition, as this section near the top bench is always muddy in the winter and spring after moisture.

    Thanks for the update. I think I'll head out there in an hour or so, when the kids are napping. At least it's sunny, but I gotta remember how to dress for this.

    Nice! The trails looked to be in decent riding shape- not even icy.

    Tough wknd to get away or I would have made the drive up. Since my fitness level is falling like my 401K did, I better hit the gym at least.

    The pain cave is a whopping 2 blocks away and I still can't figure out how to get motivated to go.
