I made this a sticky thread. I would really like to see us all do this ride! :)

bmclaughlin807 02-10-08 01:23 AM

We need to pick a date... once we have a date set, I'll ask around... I know a few people that might be interested...

Also... we should see about organizing the trip back... I'd rather not be stuck in Avon attempting to hitchhike back!

Pwnt 02-10-08 05:41 AM

Yes. Pick a day and then we can go from there.

I nominate the 12th, 19th, or 26th of July.


DataJunkie 02-10-08 02:13 PM

July 12th is the actual triple. I am in for any other day.

Pwnt 02-10-08 02:28 PM

Ok, so not the 12th then.

snowy 02-10-08 08:33 PM

I can't say what day will work for me yet, I've got to double check with a buddy about a race up in Crested Butte. :)

Pwnt 02-10-08 10:04 PM

Ok Snowy is out. I say we move without her.



Wouldnt be the same without you!:love:

Really going to try to be there. July just happens to be a big month. Got in a 35 mile ride yesterday though. It was great :)

The 19th might work for me. Otherwise July's not looking too good for me.

Thanks for the sticky Snowy!

I think it makes good sense to pick a date about 30 days out. June, July and August can have very intimidating monsoon weather. At altitude that spells hypothermia. 30 days is usually enough time to predict a high pressure system with long range weather forecasting. I'm suggesting this because I would really like it if everyone had fun with the ride. We don't need a suffer fest.

Alternatively, I can understand that folks here need to have their schedules dialed in much sooner than that. So, as a compromise - how about we pick three dates. One date each for June, July and August. Just an idea. Any other ideas are most welcome.

snowy 02-13-08 09:27 AM

I think that is a great idea! :)

valygrl 02-14-08 12:32 AM

I can do:
June 14/15
July 13
and weekends after in decreasing probability

colorider 02-14-08 10:32 AM

These weekends work for me

June 14/15 or 28/29
July 19/20 maybe - dependent on child care/babysitting
August 9/10 and 23/24

How do you bump a sticky? :p

telenick 03-08-08 10:55 AM

reapply the glue i reckon

Pwnt 03-08-08 01:00 PM

No one was discussing it anymore so I nudged it a little.

telenick 03-08-08 02:04 PM

I know you know that I know that bumping this thread demonstrates ultimate commitment to this ride. You know?

Maybe Pwnt is going to rent a bus to haul us back. I'm still trying to figure out how we are going to handle the out route. Need a back.

I have a mini van. I suppose I could fit two bikes in the back and pick up a hitch rack for two or three more behind the van. Then I could tail pwnt to avon, drop the van off, and we could drive to evergreen.

At least we have plenty of time to figure that one out.

telenick 03-09-08 02:54 PM

We're going to pedal back to evergreen after we savor a few beers in Avon. I thought you knew that.

snowy 03-09-08 04:47 PM

What this a 240 mile ride?? WHOLLY CRAP. Have fun guys!! :)

DataJunkie 03-09-08 04:59 PM

I wanted to do a 400K someday but we will need to add a few miles to make it 249.
I am not sure if a 400K in the mountains is what I had in mind but I am game.
With my new dinotte taillight y'all can stick me in back. :p
