Colorado Lift Access Riding - Lets get together
Looks like rafting season is damn near over after this weekend, so lets ride some bikes.
Usually go on Mondays and Tuesdays, anyone want to hook up on those or any other days?
Anywhere but Crusty Butt is within range. . . .
Down to shuttle anything either

Trestle has a pretty sweet twilight deal on Fridays - 4pm-7:30pm and I don't remember the exact price, but I seem to think it was like $20.
I went up there on Saturday and it was super quiet - no lines and lots of fun.
Needless to say I was having a really good time.

I plan on riding Trestle most Sundays. I rode yesterday from 9:30-1, and traffic wasn't all that bad on the way home. That's really the only times I can ride as I have a new kiddo at home and don't want to spend the day out. This is my first time on a downhill bike, and I had an absolute blast. I've just been riding my Nomad previously.All I want is to be hardcore.

Cool cool, i usually try to avoid weekends or end up at Sol Vista for those, but since I havent ridden colorado at all yet this season im down whenever. Starting next monday feel free to get at me here if you ever want to meet up, carpool or whatever.

That was my first day of DH and it was really fun - I was on my 2011 StumpJumper and it was actually plenty of bike for me almost all of the time. I've got to work on airs - that's clearly my weakest point of confidence, but the whole experience was great.

This is something I've not done yet but would love to. If I can work the scheduling, I'd be game.

I'm interested. Definitely not Steamboat. They've put in some nice groomers so far... Haven't ridden Trestle or Sol Vista.

i will be starting next week, preferably not too xc'ish
i want to do 2 elk in vail and the montezuma trail at a-basin within the next 2 weeks if that interests anyone
07-03-2012, 10:28 AM #10
Sure, both of those look very cool.

I could be sold on 2 elk. I'm in breck. Pretty fit, just waiting on a dislocated finger to heal up right now, so off the bike for a bit.

If anybody wants to do a little riding (maybe a section of the CT?) tomorrow - drop me a PM and we can coordinate. Family is out of town and I'm free!

I've been trying to get up to trestle at least once a week, usually sundays it seems like, but sometimes on weekdays

Wouldn't mind getting out for some lift served. Next time will be my first time; I just don't have the wheels to reliably get me up there consistently so I don't want to fall in love with it. I can always pay for gas though.The best things in life aren't things.

Poop, I may be up for something like the Copper section of the CT I will let you know later this evening.
Brannen I would be in for either of those so let me know..
Edgnar, I am looking for people to ride with, just moved into the valley and all the Fraserites don't like to admit the trails are better "different" here. My only buddy up here just had a a kid and has a two year so he doesn't get out much.

Just moved back to the front range and also down to carpool for some lift served most weekends. I've been tooling around the apex/chimney/white ranch digs most afternoons/evenings lately after work if anyone wants to roll up after work sometime.No, the real point is, I don't give a damn

If anyone wants to ride Trestle this weekend (7/7 or 7/8) send me a pm. Looking to go but my buddy bailed on me. And I'll be coming down from Laramie, so if anyone wants to carpool I'm down with that too.

Want to get my first lift served day in next week. This week is full of golf and more doctor appointments or I would head up in the next few days.
I can drive up but only have a two-bike trunk rack. I'm thinking next Monday or Tues @ Trestle or Key.The best things in life aren't things.
