Yes, it looks like the forecast was right, so I'm in. I'll be on an Orange Lemond. See you there.

Hey,

I just wanted to say that toay's ride was pretty great. Seeing sun, snow and moutains all during the same ride was a blast. Hats off to the 2 Bills for riding so strong on those fully loaded commuter bikes/ tanks. And to pwnt and Superdex's gf for doing such a good job on just their 2nd road ride. I look forward to more group riding with y'all.

FWIW, I have an excellent book called, "Road Biking Colorado" that has a bunch of scenic rides of varying difficulty. Some of the rides are in the Front Range area and there are many more scattered throughout the state. I volunteer myself to organize a group ride before June.

It was a great ride! Me AND my tank had a great time! :p Look forward to the next ride.

I have that book, too! Looks like some great rides in it. :)

Edit: Wait, I don't have that one... mine is 'Road Biking Colorado's Front Range' and all the roads are in the Front Range. :) It's still a good book!

Man did I have a good time. Even the crash was a fun (Fallover). Glad to get it outta the way. I couldn't have wished for a better group to ride with. All the different strengths and abilities was really a pleasure as well. I would ride with anyone of you anytime. Just give me a holla! :D

Thanks Snowy for organizing it! You rock!

Let's get the next one going!!!!

OK Snowy - got pics?

Thanks for the ride folks. We have to do that again soon. Next time I will eat more than a brownie for breakfast and actually pack some food. Completely bonked at the end. My head still hurts. It was great riding with everyone. Sorry about my noisy bike, I can only plead laziness for not working on it lately. And it wasn't my first fall of the season (thanks icy bike path) but it was pretty embarassing.

Here are the pix I took (warning they are very big):

These group rides are great to see (and read about). Keep them going, guys!

DataJunkie 02-12-07 08:33 AM

Dang you people for having fun without me! :p
How were the temps? Thornton was around 55-60F yesterday when I took my son on a ride. The further west we rode the colder it seemed to get.

Count me in next time. :)

snowy 02-12-07 08:54 AM

Data,
The temps were great. We finished about 3:30 or so. It was nice the whole way!!

Please join us next time. :)

Snowy

No way! There wasn't a single flat, and we LIKED it that way! :p

J/k... look forward to seeing you next time! :) :)

snowy 02-12-07 09:45 AM

Hey you guys, I took the pics on boyfriend's camera. He was going to bring it to work but forgot. I will post them up tomorrow.

Sorry. :)

LOL

If you keep cutting your hair before group rides it's going to end up looking like mine. he he

bvfrompc 02-12-07 10:17 AM

BTW, I had to get back to the family, we had a sick 2.5 year old all weekend so while I would have loved to finish the ride with you guys, after riding 2.5 hours on Saturday, I needed to get back home and give momma a break, so having the ride go by so close to my house worked out perfectly, thanks again,

superdex 02-12-07 10:41 AM

C. and I had a great time, can't wait to do it again! :D --it felt so NICE to ride outside!

Pheard 02-12-07 12:24 PM

Who's that cute girl in the red/white/black jersey? The one with the killer calves?

superdex 02-12-07 12:50 PM

I know, but I ain't tellin!

snowy 02-12-07 01:02 PM

Yeah who is that girl??? :)

Pheard 02-12-07 01:08 PM

Is she single? :D

superdex 02-12-07 01:08 PM

I can answer with complete confidence that neither of the women pictured are single. You're too young anyway.

snowy 02-12-07 01:13 PM

Yep not single :) I have a feeling a mountain biker guy would put a good fight for me :)

Pheard 02-12-07 01:15 PM

Ahhh bummer.

Well looks like you all had fun. Maybe next time it'll be a group MTB ride. :)

I wanna see that mystery girl's mtb skills.

snowy 02-12-07 01:15 PM
