Cool. I'll put it down for me. It will be good to get those legs moving on my bike. :) I rode the trainer lastnight and I wasn't liking the part of not going anywhere :)

I have a few ideas of some rides, I'm very open to suggestions though and would apperciate any imput :)

11th works fine with me too. :)

Pwnt 01-25-07 06:11 PM

Depending on what time you go I might be able to swing the 11th. Let me know so that I might be schooled in the ways of roadbiking.

Zin 01-26-07 05:55 PM

I'm in for the 11th. Any idea of starting point/time?

Zin 01-26-07 06:02 PM

Since its going to snow AGAIN this weekend...

Anyone interested in joining me on a little snowshoe adventure on Green Mtn?

As long as it's above 45 degrees and the roads aren't a mess, I should be able to make it on the 11th. Starting late morning/ early afternoon will give us the best chance for sun & warm temps.

I've yet to take any rides in the Denver area, but I'm open to just about any route.

snowy 01-28-07 03:48 PM

Since everyone is good with the 11th its a go. :) Pray for no new snow around that time. :)

I just got back from Glenwood Springs, we took our mountain bikes up there in hopes of getting to ride. The plan was to ride the bike trail along the canyon. We got to ride about 5miles before we came across this hugh gate "Bike path closed for season". We would have ridden thru but there was a CDOT guy watching us. :(
Anyhoo, it was snow packed. We went on to the hot springs.
You'll quickly learn that all of Colorado is under some sort of snow.

As for ride route. I'm up for anything. :) I'll put out some ideas this week. :)

Pwnt 01-28-07 06:03 PM

Are we talking mountain bikes, OR are we still thinking road bikes?

snowy 01-29-07 08:34 AM

Road bikes :)

bmclaughlin807 01-31-07 12:58 PM

Touring / commuting bikes! *ducks*

I'll probably be the only one there with fenders, rack, panniers, lights.... But that's ok, I don't mind people thinkin' I'm a little off! :)

snowy 01-31-07 02:31 PM

I'm hoping for some nice weather that weekend. They are saying the nexts weather is looking good??

Lets just keep our fingers crossed!!:)

bmclaughlin807 02-04-07 03:33 PM

Weather looks good all week except they're calling for snow on Friday (Wouldn't wanna break our 7 week streak, now, would you? :p )

Saturday and Sunday are looking to be mid-40's... just gotta see what that little disturbance Friday does to us.

snowy 02-05-07 11:52 AM

Does anyone know how much snow this Friday. I checked Saturday on Denverchannel.com and it says snow Friday and Saturday. If that is the case maybe we should push back the ride for the next week??

Any suggestions??

superdex 02-05-07 12:20 PM

from weather.com, looks clear all week--

snowy 02-05-07 12:24 PM

That looks promising :)

superdex 02-05-07 12:30 PM

as for a route, I'll see if I can drive some options this week. Off the top of my head there's Sloan's Lake to Golden and back --it's not terribly long, but the roads should be pretty clean. Here's a quick routeslip fo Sloan's to the Judicial Center and back. ~28mi http://www.routeslip.com/routes/20884

That sounds good for me. I can't get the map to come up but I'm open. :)

Pwnt 02-05-07 01:30 PM

It no workie. Do we have a time pinned down yet?

snowy 02-05-07 01:38 PM

No time yet.
How early are people wanting to start. Like 9am, 10am??

superdex 02-05-07 01:55 PM

10 or 11 works for me, catch the heat of the day as much as we can....

snowy 02-05-07 02:33 PM

Lets go for 11am then. I'm down with that. :)

Everyone in??

snowy 02-05-07 02:34 PM

S.dex just give us meeting point. (Sloans Lake) and we will shoot for 11 AM Sunday the 11th!!

superdex 02-05-07 05:37 PM

There is a parking lot at W 21st Ave and Stuart St; looking at the google map it's the parking lot north east of the island (switch the view to "Hybrid" to see the island)

--I'll be in a very dirty silver Nissan Pathfinder with a hitch rack and an orange bike....

bmclaughlin807 02-05-07 08:27 PM

I'll be on my bike. You'll know me when you see me... I'll be the only one there with lights, rack, fenders, panniers.... :p
