    Ride Saturday

    Anyone up for a ride??? Ride will be as follows:

    Bogus Basin, Corrals, Hard Guy, Ridge Road, 8th, #4, Ridge Road, #2, 3 Bears, Curlew, #6, #4, Sidewinder, and more if I finish earlier than 3:30pm.

    I should be rolling up BB road around 9:30am and the pace will be slow. be prepared for mud on Eagleson.

    Sounds like a good first lap.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    If I end up with 5 hours at Sidewinder, I'll head back up 8th and hit Eagleson again. All depends on how much food and electrolytes I carry. After 4 hours, it is nice to see people.

    Could also do Rocky Canyon, Ridge, Hard Guy, 8th, 4, 6, 4, Sidewinder..

    Hey Al & Dirk & others ----

    When y'all do these epic rides in the Footies....how much water are you hauling around? I'm assuming at least 100oz? Are you pretty good at making your water last 5+ hours of riding? Or do you head back down to refill your hydration bladder before heading out again?

    the ridge road near bogus

    just as it drops behind the ridge might have some long snow streches. I ran into snow streches between hardguy and shingle creek last weekend. And in years past around this time of year have run into snow on the ridge road just as it goes behind the ridge.
    Live to ride!

    Chris, it is clear enough. Just slushy and muddy in some spots. The snow isn't that bad this year.

    Baaaaaa....

    Nick - Water consumption is dependent on temps for me. I usually carry around 100oz + 1 water bottle...which usually last me about 6 hours if the temperatures stay below 90F.

    Lamb Chop

    Nick,

    That's one good looking lamb. Did you trade in the teddy for that blue eyed wonder? I bet if it can keep up with Visi's hounds, he'd like to borrow it for those marathon rides - you know just for the trail raisins.

    100oz Mule plus 22oz(?) bottle. In the summer, if you get up to Bogus Basin, you can refill there. Riding during the coolest part of the day too (start ~6am in the summer, finish before noon). This time of year is nice, as you can sleep in.

    Ridge Road from Hardguy to 4 is clear. There are a few patches of snow on the side of road, and some puddles.

    Next week's Saturday ride will be from Rocky Canyon to Bogus Basin Rd and then down Dry Creek or part Stack.
