Yep. The weather has been easy this winter.
Plus, I added a mountain bike to my garage and if it snows less than a foot it comes out. Snow riding is a blast.

I stink at setting things up. As Bill knows I tend to pick a direction and ride towards it.

However, Pwnt and I may be riding this weekend.
We need to wait for you to get well.
Thoughts anyone?

I don't have a sitter on Sundays and can never find one. Hopefully that will change for Sunday events this coming up season. *crosses fingers*

Saturday my wife is off so I ride that day. Sundays are filled riding with my son or other father\son activities.
That and my kid likes to stop every mile to examine something. 3 hrs to go 5 miles usually. lol

I say get well first. I am pretty much riding every Saturday.

I have improved a tad. For my century last Saturday I made a nice queue sheet and followed it the first half.
The return trip I decided Hover St through longmont stunk and then improvised most of the remaining miles.
Of course I was short 5 miles at the end and had to ride around thornton to add mileage. d'oh!

You know that really annoying thing that people do, when they post why they can't make it?

Sorry, can't make it, I'm flying to Tucson, for a week of 75* riding.

If we are riding on Saturday I will be on my fixed gear. My tarmac is getting a tune up. I can flip it to SS if we are climbing something fun for the downhills.
I wonder if I can climb lookout on a 42\16 gear? hmmm

It looks like the temps should be nice Saturday.

I could grab my mountain bike if we wanted to ride something like an easy singletrack. I am a wee bit pathetic at actual mountain biking.

Depends what type of gear you have!

I'd argue that the mountains are safe ALL year!

October 8, 2007 - The Mount Evans Road is Closed for the Season!!!

The Mount Evans Scenic Byway (road) was closed today for the 2008 season. The road will open on Friday, May 23, 2008. It may open earlier weather permitting.

I am unsure if anyone is interested but I figure why not post just in case.

I am riding my March century this coming up Saturday. Anyone is welcome to join me.

So far it looks something like this (I am willing to change it as needed):
1) Leave my house at 115th and CO blvd. Head west to Wadsworth.
2) Take 120th from Wads west to 93.
3) 93 south into golden to ford st.
4) Go up lookout and down colfax.
5) Leave golden via 93 back to 120th.
6) Ride north on mccaslin through superior to cheryvale.
7) Head north on cherryvale to baseline in Boulder.
8) Take baseline and follow it as it turns into 168th \ highway 7.
9) Head south on york to finish back up at the starting location.

Like I said, I can change where I start or the route if anyone wants to join poor little old lonely me.
