We're trucking up our plated dirt bikes this time around. Mailny so we don't get suckered into Tellydoug's easy big bike ride up Tin Cup again. :-)

See everyone Thurs.

Telly what

Yes, that exact one. Beware the Tellydoug rides, beware.

Usually JD gets it very close; close enough that you won't need any additional jjetting on hand. Most of the Taylor Park singletrack is 9000-12000 ft.

I am IN for the single track rides regardless. The more challenging the better.

Riding over Cottonwood Pass on the 2T would be a bit annoying, but once you got to the singletrack the 2T would be a lot easier. Bring them both. Take the 2T on your first ride and if you decide you can handle the ST on a bigger bike, take the 525 on subsequent rides.

Here's a 525 heading up Granite Mtn, maybe the most difficult section of Taylor Park singletrack:

I'll be leading a scouting ride to check out some singletrack I've never done. I'll probably leave around 9:00 and be gone all day. A plated bike will be required for my ride.

Is anyone riding in to Buena Vista from the Denver area on Thursday? It would be fun to have some other folks to ride with. I'm planning on leaving around noonish, but that's flexible.

Friday start

I am planning on a Friday morning start to BV from Longmont. I'm considering some DS on the way there rather than just slabbing it. Anyone else going that way Friday?

We're going to have a Rally Point at The Fort in Morrison.

Address is 19192 Colorado 8, Morrison, CO 80465.

Plan is to meet up there at 2:30PM on Thursday.

Drop me a PM if you're going to meet me at my house in Littleton (S. Holly & County Line) a bit before 2PM, or if you plan on meeting us at The Fort at 2:30 PM...

I ride a BMW Dakar with the Motorsport Flag graphics...

I thought someone was leaving from Ft. Collins Friday and had a real good route planned out to get down there. I cant find the post now but maybe it was Clang?


Ill be down there by 2-3 tomorrow, saying in space #1. I am hoping it will be perfect conditions with the rain today as long as its only scattered T-strom through the weekend.



You guys have a safe ride.

Trail Map?

Can anyone recommend a decent trail map for the Taylor Park area? Ideally something in color that shows topographic lines. I was thinking something like this but I'm not sure if it shows singletrack that motorcycles can ride?
