    Snow was actually melting today. I went up to Moab Rim and it's almost rideable, snow on the two ledge sections though. Should be good to go by the 19th, we can do 25 laps on it.


    I would only go watch reggae if the band from the hillz played some funk too.

    We were supposed to go out to Green River next weekend for a ride, but I think we will head to New Mexico the weekend of the 24th instead and ride for a few days.

    For you thump I'm willing to go out and shovel off 23 miles of ST for the 2 hours it takes to ride that trail.:wink:

    Hold the phone, good melting today. The Rim might be possible (just the first part up to the rim). I'll go check it out tomorrow. Otherwise, I might go to Sedona to mtn. bike with a buddy.
