hello from the Mile High City

Just discovered this forum and posted to the Mountain Bike section. Would love to blab on and on about what a badass I am on the trail and how long I've been riding... but none of you want to hear that, and honestly I'm not that vain.

Besides... it is REALLY NICE OUT today, so I'm leaving to get in a road ride (still too much snow and mud on the trails).

Check out my post in the MOUNTAIN BIKING forum, por favor!

Cheers!
--------- ROB K

Green Mountain.... trail report

Follow up on what the birdy said...

Been riding on the road for weeks due to the snow still on the trails-- but yesterday I decided to give GM a try (since it's practically in my back yard). My first hand report: Mostly good trail with occasional patches of snow, mud and tire-sucking muck. South facing sides are better than the north, but that's to be expected, eh?

Finished the ride with an extra pound of mud on me/bike. So be prepared for bath time!

Yo Superdex. Thanks for saying hello. I looked at your profile... where do you play hockey? I've played off and on with RMHL here in Denver. MTB and Hockey -- them's my two favorite sports.

I posted it in Foo the first day I saw it! If you can't get the Foosters to view in overwhelming numbers, then no body can .

They are a highly trained, highly mobile viewing force.

Very Cool

Thanks a lot for re-posting it. You rule the school!!

It's a simple little film, that I made a long time ago. I've had several other people help "spread the love" and am quite grateful for all the views it's been getting and all the kind words!! Very cool.

You know, that very well could be a slogan for the Foo forum...but they're nice people down there.

Thanks for viewing and forwarding!!

I live very close to 6th & Simms. Looks like the weather is awesome, so I'll be riding around 2pm.
If you're interested... shoot me an email.
