    It was a great day to be out there. I stayed in town to get some climbing in, and ended up breaking my chain. Fourth chain I've broken on this Salsa this past year.

    Was going to ride today. Aired the tires, gathered the backpack/water, got the helmet on, opened the garage door, and :yikes. Thunder and lightening rolled in. Put it all away and went and did some errands. Read tonight a lady and her horse were killed in Sedalia about the same time I was headed out to ride. :(:

    Yep, it is BLM but they have "Day Use Only" signs out there.

    I don't have exact locations but we ventured in there last fall and saw a couple of them. There is also a signboard back there as well. No worries. One could get way back in there and stealth camp and be gone the next day without getting busted is my guess. Not that I would do anything like that...

    I got to try out my new Silky hand saw. I'm sure I burned more calories sawing downed timber than I did riding.

    Anyone interested in riding up Pikes Peak to watch the hill climb on the 25th?

    I've done it in years past, up Barr Trail, then across to Glen Cove. Thinking about maybe heading up from Cascade to the lower reservoirs this time. It's been several years, and I'm guessing they've tightened up security since then. Anyone know if there's somebody checking armbands or anything like that around the course? Do we actually need tickets? Is there going to be any parking available in Cascade or Green Mtn Falls?

    Griz? :ear You've been up to spectate in recent years, right?

    Big Red Camero is running this year, and I'd really like to see it out on the course.

    EDIT: I just spoke with the Pikes Peak Ranger's office, and they said there's no trail restrictions or closures aside from the hwy itself and the trail from Glen Cove to the peak, and it's perfectly legal to hike/bike in via Barr trail, etc. without a ticket.

    well after the installation of a child seat on my Trek / Gary Fisher Marlin 29'r it wasnt very practical on the trail; nor was it an amazing bike from the get-go. I finally came across a friend deal on a new-to-me bike and am stoked to get out on the Boulder / front range trails again! Giant Reign....

    I got my boy on the bike about a month ago. Now at 7 months, he likes to go for longer rides around town.

    I got to go for an overnight ride from Silverton to Lake City and back about a week ago.

    my daughter absolutely loves riding on the Trek. I started riding with her at about 9 months; she's 20 months now.

    The monarch crest and greens were cleared on Sunday by a bunch of moto folks. The wifey and I rode the crest today. That snow bank was quite a bit bigger just 2 days ago. [​IMG]

    Any word on Fooses, Agate & Starvation? Planning on heading up there this weekend to do some camping and "Colorado point-to-point" riding with a buddy (I hesitate to call it shuttling, since that'd imply it's all downhill).
