    Any Mountain Bikers here?

    Looking for people to ride with.

    I try to get out once or twice a week when I can , even if for a shorter local ride.

    Yup! Giant Trance. Ride in Golden and Boulder frequently. I usually ride solo mostly because I don't know a lot of other riders. Would love to meet up.

    5 bikes that have been somewhat neglected since buying a dirtbike. Ride DH, DJ and XC. Still try to get out when I have a chance, but I'm in Ned.

    Specialized Rockhopper I ride a few times a week at Pineridge (Ft. Collins). A nice 7-mile loop with lots of rocks, a few fast downhills, and a few quad-burning climbs. Like others, I do it solo, but company would be great! I can ride right from my house, too. Any SW FTC bikers want to join in, let me know.

    You wouldn't know how passionate I am about cycling by how little time I've been spending doing it -- having other peeps to ride with is motivating though. I'm definitely up for doing some pedaling...

    Titus Switchblade - long travel. Doesn't get used as much these days because of the gas powered bike. Conifer/Evergreen area when I do manage to go for a ride. I'm off Friday so I think a fall pedal ride is in order down Buff Creek way.

    Dude. My route is a great, 45-min intense and fun ride away from the city! And, haven't seen you in a while - let's go ride!

    Yeti 575!

    I try to ride Winter Park most weekends, though the weather is starting to turn FAST.

    This is the last weekend Winter Park / Trestle bike park is open. Downhill mountain biking is an absolute blast!

    Anybody interested in an ADVrider downhill mountain bike get-together at WP this weekend? Plenty of outstanding cross country trails as well in WP and Fraser. Can put up 2-3 people if anybody wants to stay overnight...

    Another Yeti 575 here, but I haven't ridden it much recently because I'm still searching for a trail loop that is downhill the whole way... :evil

    I have that same....coffee table!

    I'd be down too if I have time. I ride a GF Marlin hardtail and this is about the time of year I like to get out a MTB. This week isn't good for me since I just had PRK so my vision is on and off.

    I've hit up Red Rocks and Section 16. Also keep it light and fun around GOTG and some other local trails. I finally found Captain Jacks so I'm going to hit that up soon.

    I'm on the west side of Wheat Ridge. I'm a milder rider for now as I get my fat ass back into shape...usually down for sane singletrack or offroad spin rides.

    I ride mountain bikes, but you guys wouldn't want to ride with me.

    I get remarks all the time. "Why aren't you breathing hard at all when I'm dying here?!?!" is the most common. :lol3
