Fixed gear rides

Thanks. I rode with them last year.
Same concept just closer to town for people that hate to drive 45 minutes to Earie.
What do you think?

I'm planning on showing up this winter after I fix my FG's BB. First I want a new crankset.

I'm in Thornton so Earie isn't very far for me. However, neither is Denver. I'm all up for mixing things up.

I have not been on a fixed gear in many many years. Not sure I would know what to do on one of those.

I am thinking we can meet up early either Saturdays or Sundays at the REI downtown and go from there.

Yesterday, I would have said ASAP, but I woke up sick today and now will probably be off the bike this weekend.

I know this thread is old but I'm bumping it to see if there is interest in this.
