    I was late putting this year’s ride together so I thought I would have a smaller group because of it, but at the starting line we had 25 attendees (a new record). The route changes slightly from year to year and this year’s route was the hardest, but it was a route I've been trying to do for years. I really liked the route, but the attrition rate was a little high, so we’ll modify the route accordingly this year.

    25 riders started, 8 finished.

    Obviously I am in Paul, need a sweep again?

    I'll be testing the GasGas as a Brecktrek bike so will I be the first 2 Stroke?

    I'm in for sure. Where does everyone meet? Time? Date? What do we plan on breaking? Where is the route going from Woodland Park to get to Breck?
    Sounds to me like I'll need at least 5 beers when I'm done with this ride!:dutch

    We meet at a crazy early hour in Woodland Park at the Hungry Bear. We ride dirt trails for the most part from WP to Breck...its a crazy route and a crazy day. Expect anything.

    Very likely In. I'll be driving back from a trip on Friday, re-pack, and fly south to sleep in someones back yard if I can. Barring no mechanical issues on the way back. Looking forward to it.

    Awesome! I'd say you could join me on the BreckTrek gimp squad, but I'm sure you're already in better riding shape than me.

    In October I went on one ride... it was a little too soon ... felt like someone kicked me in the gut!!

    I waited a month... and tried it again... didn't feel too bad. But that's it... just two rides since... Needless to say I'm gonna have to put on some miles between now and then. Looking forward to it!!

    Oh and Bobby... by the looks of you ice racing... and all the other rides you've been doing... I'd say I've got some catching up to do!! It will be double time for me!!!

    Now we just gotta wait for this snow to melt...

    What are you talking about? We're all outfitted for ice racing. We'll tear up those snow packed trails!!!
