    Yep, we are gonna ride tomorrow! Somewhere. :unsure::geek: Maybe we'll make it to Elk Meadow for the real black trails (not sandbag blue-blacks).

    It might be okay...

    Whiting-Luge-Whiting with @Danimal Sunday Aug. 13. We are meeting at Wahoos at 7:30... ish.

    As you can see, I am consistent with planning well in advance. Nearly 9 1/2 hours from now!

    UPDATE:
    About one hour from now. Still room on the roster...

    Ahh the Afternoon T- Storms of CO. Unavoidable until September.

    Are there really black trails in Elk Meadow now?

    Tomorrow I ride at high noon until 3pm-ish. First MTB ride in a month, and it feels like I'm planning an epic by virtue of deprivation.

    I joined strava yesterday to chase KOMs on Barrett Stoddard and threw out a few private texts for company, but no dice. I may still attempt it solo, but that wouldn't be an optimal ride. Still, it wouldn't hurt to see where I initially stand. I'll see how I'm feeling after breakfast.

    I may just end up riding Marshall Canyon, but I'm told itchy-scratchy is overgrown. Again, I'll see how I'm feeling after breakfast.

    Yay, Dio! We give you a holler when we top out at the man-eating chipmunk. Have a great one, and no crazy spills! :thumbsup::cool:


    @herzalot, Idunno, really...ratings are kinda a can o' worms. All I know is, nothing at Elk took me many tries to clean, and I can't say that about Three Sisters! :unsure::)


    Have a great ride, riders! Report back at beer:thirty. :cautious::geek:

    Headed over to the JRA-SCV mountain bike ride. Sounds like a mellow Cheeseboro Loop. Yeah right.

    I was thinking about riding Wild horse trail (from hwy 38) but I can't start until 9:00 AM.
    Is a little under 2hr ride. Could add another 90' by going to the top of Sugarloaf

    It took me a good 20 seconds to realize you meant an extra 90 minutes, not 90 feet.

    Thinking Saturday... First big ride on the Chameleon. Trabuco wash, Holy Jim, Main Divide to the peak, "down" to the Motorway, Roadie spin to the Luge, downhill to O'Neill and back to the wash. Might take the upper Joplin cutoff, and might skip the Luge... Pace will be slow.

    23 miles and probably 6000 feet to get to Motorway.

    Might be guiding a friend from out-of-state through Cheese Burrito tomorrow afternoon. That ought to be a good test for my Remedy's new drive train.

    Darn it! I wish I would have seen this ahead of time. I didn't get enough out of yesterday's afternoon ride and I was half way thinking of riding up to the towers myself. I've seen OTB up there before.

    You should have come out. Our hazing ritual consists of having to beat 70+ year old Dale aka Old Fart. Easier said than done because he climbs like a goat :thumbsup:

    Jennifer wants to do a road ride tomorrow. Sounds like she wants to put some time in the saddle. Probably just local from home though. Sunday will be MTB but that is up in the air.

    I know and several friends are doing it. However we are on a time constraint as it is Jennifer's mother's birthday.
