    Will anything in the Front Range be dry?

    Will anything in the Front Range be dry this weekend? or atleast rideable? I'm gonna run by the shop tomorrow or Friday and pick up the brake adapter/new seatpost that I need for my AC. Otherwise I'm very anxious to get out onto some trails with some folks. Obviously it'll have to be something that doesn't have horrendously difficult climbs because I'm new at the whole trail riding thing and being a shuttle wheenie I'll have to develop the skills and work myself into it.

    If the hogback is dry enough this weekend, I'll be on it. Throwing together a different HT Saturday morning. I'll wanna get out on it.

    Storms a brewin' I think even Green mountain is wet right now (there's snow on the ground). If it gets gnar-warm the next few days, I suspect it'll be dry by weekend.

    Very little snow over here (GM/MW/DR). Already evaporating off the grass and the dirt is mostly clear already. If no further precipitation, it will all be rideable Saturday.

    Sweet. How would I get to those trails from I-25? Also, anybody else up for a ride?

    I-25 to C470, follow roundabout 20-30 miles (Guessing), and get off at the Morrison exit. Go left towards morrison, and take your first right (in front of the conoco) on Rooney road. The road comes to a T, take a left, and then take your next right after the Dinosaur museum (little brown building). Parking lot will be on your left. From the parking lot you can ride dakota ridge (west of lot), or Green mountain (East, opposite side of highway).

    Boulder/Longmont/Loveland will all be a mess when the temps get up. I'd say no chance on any trails in these areas unless you go early before the thaw starts.

    Seems like the forecast is for another storm system (rain) hitting mid-Saturday. It may be too early to say but the GM/MW/DR week-end window may be limited to Saturday morning.

    The GM parking lot is on the right. The dirt bike track lot is on the left.

    Weather.com states:

    Sat High 55 Low 38 Partly cloudy
    Sun High 54 Low 31 Partly cloudy

    But hey, it's Colorado and we know how this can change

    I would be up for a mtb ride on Saturday. Haven't been on that bike in months

    We had more snow in Longmont than there was in Boulder.
    Loveland had more snow than Longmont.
    Therefore by the transitive property, Fort Collins is snowy.

    Yeah, we got 6-8" up this way, not looking good for this weekend except for early morning before things soften up.
