    Friday Night T.I.T.S. round 2?

    Twas. Itchin. To. Ski .(or Snowboard)

    Tires. In. The. Snow.
    (sorry its kinda late and been a long day, all i could come up with)

    After last weeks ride which was way fun! (better gloves next time )(would have been better off with those Dora the Explorer mittens i saw at the trailhead)

    Not sure what weather or trails will look like so I'll ask for some reports and or input. Was thinking this could be a MMAD T.I.T.S. combined ride on Friday night again this week. If you all are willing to drive a bit up north, or just start at IW and do a Pint to Pint parking lot version Even if it is snowing that was pretty fun!

    Whatch guys think?

    Just got back for a FIFO ride at Matthew Winters. North facing stuff was icy (climb up to plateau) and the south facing stuff is dry as a bone. Gonna be pretty muddy this afternoon. Not too windy at all.

    Going to have to see about Friday night. With a fulltime job and a family, the weekend evenings is the only time I get to get out in the garage and build lights. Going to have to wait till a little later in the week to see how many lights I need to build before I commit.

    Try to when the weather allows. Dan had a goal to get a ride in every month of the year this year, he accomplished it today. Not all were FIFO rides. Winter time is "play it by ear". I thought about PM'ing you but I saw that you were riding tonight.

    Yup - I play racquetball Tues mornings, and have been riding Tues nights.
    Would be up for a FIFO though - keep me posted.
    I think my friend Troy contact you about an Amoeba - he's a really good guy.

    Sorry Ladies and Gents,

    I'm out for Friday, Giving my Woman the night out with the girls. I'll still be riding Thursday night though if anyone wants in...Leaving Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood at 5:30 and headed up Green Mtn or can met at Ironworks if that works better. Expect Jeremy's Traverse to be a finisher and Secret Ridge as the Starter.

    Ohhh, all good questions. I forgot there were options and it might be a MMAD + TITS ride. What's going on? Where we riding? I'm confused, I must confess, it's happening easily today since I believe I am suffering from a mild concussion

    As soon as I get some lights I'll be down for these rides. They sound like a blast. I'll hopefully have some next week depending on how long they take to ship. My dad back in Cleveland hooked me up on a good deal through his bike shop and is sending me some.

    I'm pretty sure I lost my helmet, forgot my pants, put crappy tyres on my bike, puked on too much turkey dinner, and basically said EFF it and went snowboarding instead on Friday.




    Now where's that "nanny nanny boo boo" smiley face when you need it? EDIT: Ah sweet... found it!

    The older I get, the faster I was.

    For the truly commited!

    or confused, I was planning on starting my ride at IW, was waiting to see what snow was going to do tomorrow, don't want to go ridiing on muddy trails ya know For sure i understand whatever night works for y'all!! Just happens to be fri. night this week for me

    So lets plan on IW at 6:00 friday:

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vCJ55u8kOIw&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vCJ55u8kOIw&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    I rode yesterday, saw someone leaving the alameda lot just before 6:30. Looks like I'm out for Friday, but 80% go for tomorrow. Anyone else up for meeting at IW? Just like Tuesday, I'll be there between 6 and 6:30, ready to roll at 6:30.

    We rode up to the the Green Mtn Trailhead...went around and up Hayden, crossed straight over Green Mtn Rd and took a left on Summit Trail...Then took a right down what we thought was Jeremy's Traverse...Ended up, it was one valley to the North...in our own round about bushwacking way we found it about half way down...Then we took the Greenbelt Trail back to the College and rode Van Gorden back over to the Ironworks area.

    I'm never one to turn down anything to do with the cold. Honestly, you CO folks are wimps. Want cold? Try northern WI in January

    I've been working 10 hour days this week, so I won't be out of work until 530. And next week is my wife's graduation so my parents will be in town starting Thursday (not hers though, weird huh?).

    If FT doesn't find me a ride to the mountains after work I'm in at least for a tasty cold refreshment. I don't know if I can handle the cold for some reason it's so much colder on a bike than on skis!

    As we were rolling back one of Lakewoods finest decided we looked suspicious so he followed us around a bit and we decided to not go back to our vehicles, just yet. And after we dead ended in a parking lot he shined his spot on us, then all of the sudden took off down alameda, two old farts on mtbs not too threatening! Till next Friday.................

    Thanks mang! We started last spring with it, and it is a good time.
    I also participated in a few of the mini crew days.
    Both are very rewarding.

    Definitely come join us some night. Tues (MMAD) and Thurs/Fri (T.I.T.S.) night
    group rides have been in order quite a bit lately!

    Nice, I like the stairs shot and my rider shots at night never turn out!

    Aloha friday next week!! Bra!
    MMAD Tuesdays, T.I.T.S. on Thursdays, Aloha Friday rides... I love it! I hear the weather is gonna be good this week, you should 'spect me to show up for something one of these nights. Thanks for the call post-ride on Friday, gave me quite the grin!
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.
