    I can usually see GM out of my window in office da la casa, however the snow at the moment has cut visibility! Should be a fun one for ya! Expectin them pics though!

    And if they are, I recommend the Southern Sun for wings and beers.

    After riding there on Sunday I'd love to make it out for this. That trail is perfect for night/snow riding, especially the new loop. Unfortunately the Slayer is in the shop with a dead pivot bearing.

    I'm still planning on being there at this point, and I'm sure MGE is too - (he's hard core)!

    As wet as the snow was at my house this morning, I decided to call it "muddy" and not bring my bike to work to make it. Next week for me... or still yet this week for an "Aloha Friday Ride" on GM or BC...

    In case anyone else is still going - MGE and I just decided we'll still be at Marshall Mesa main trailhead at 6pm.

    Agreed. I'll get his @ss up on some real terrain and we'll see how that thing holds up! Heck, I might even make his chase my skier friends down Palli!

    Gentlemen, give a guy a break...Echo was only my 3rd time out ever and I learned Loveland was a fluke...Went to hard Pack Echo and got my @ss handed to me...I need a wider board eventually...Found my rear foot catching on linking my turns on the toeside if I wasn't careful...Bought some Burton Elevators for $30 at Sports Auth until I can afford another board.

    MMAD was a good time to be had...I think all those pansies who claimed mud, didn't want to get out for a real night's workout...

    Riding through 6 + inches of pow pow is a work out so we had to start the ride with some post ride carbs from Nature's beer garden...

    Then there were three...a mysterious light pierced the darkness as Andy and I reached Community Ditch...WKD...RDR made it after all...suffering on the SS

    go ahead and buy your $200 + dollar winter shoes...hike a biking through snowdrifts up to my knees down to 8 degrees F these booties along with a pair of snowboard socks and my summer riding shoes have proved their worth

    After going uphill both ways in the snow, the final leg made it all worth while.



    Hands - frozen
    Feet - frozen
    BB5's - frozen
    Camelback tube - frozen

    Grampa's cough syrup - NOT frozen, and mighty tastey.

    Anyone going tonight? If we don't get above freezing today, the trails will probably be OK (i.e., frozen). I'm gonna wuss out and hit the gym, though.

    I just got back from my first ride on Spring Brook. There have been a decent number of hikers, but I think I had first bike tracks west of Hwy 93. I had to hike a couple of the sections where the trail side-hills, though maybe it's just because my tires aren't particularly aggressive. The rest of the trail was quite fun, even if a bit of work.

    The only bit I did east of Hwy 93 was Coal Seam, which was ridable.

    Have fun out there!

    A couple phone photos:

    I'm not going to be able to make it tonight, but I might be riding tomorrow night (Weds). The trails were decent this past weekend, so I'm guessing (read: hoping) they'll be even better on Wednesday.
