    Sunday morning It's warm enough to ride

    Where locally is it dry enough to ride?
    Who's in charge, the thinker or the thought?

    I'm trying to figure out the same thing. Since I live way south, I hope I don't drive to GM or South Table Mtn and find out there are muddy sections. The south-facing sections of exposed trails should be dry. I'm tempted to try one of the two I mentioned above. I think Marshal Mesa will be dry-ish as well.

    I think Green Mountain should be fine along with Dakota and Red Rocks....I am sure there will be some wet spots, but nothing major. I am planning on heading over that way shortly.

    Lots of snow has melted up here, but I haven't been out. I'd suspect front side of Hall to be acceptable. A friend of mine rode partway up Picture Rock. Said there was still lots of snow but no mud. Wish I could be more help...

    I think we're heading to MM area. I drove through those parts last night and there was minimal patches of snow and crazy wind. It should be mostly dry.

    West side of Green Mountain bone dry

    I parked in Morrison, rode the bike path (!) on my vee brake townie (that used to have discs and was my main ride, 10 times to Moab) up to Green Mountain, Rooney Rd. side. I figured I'd turn around when I encountered mud but there was none.

    It was like a miraculous mid-March ride when there'd been an extended dry spell and things had finally dried out, at least on Green Mtn. I hadn't been there since last Spring and it sure was nice. Oh yeah, I caught someone in the act of "yielding". I have proof!

    Anybody know what the rest of Green Mtn was like?

    Chimney Gulch was amazingly dry with 3-4 puddles and 2 patches of snow in the trees. We dropped down Apex and the top was definitely quite snow covered but melting quick.

    Great ride!!

    It was positively hot at Peublo today, likely over 80.

    I was dirt jumping all day in the Springs and it was perfect- couldn't ask for better weather, especially in December.

    All I did was was ride around corn fields and wells today.

    It was an energizing ride.

    Marshall Mesa was fine....

    Rode Coalseam, Greenbelt Plateau, High Plains out and back, over to Pararie Vista, Flatirons Vista, Doudy Draw, Spingbrook, back to Doudy Draw, Community Ditch back to Coalseam.

    About 50 feet of Springbrook was muddy and unstable. Otherwise, just a wet spot or three over the entire system.

    We chose wisely.

    Pueblo was warm! Really cool riding out there. It was definitely good to ride something different. My wife and my friend Mikey.
