    Anyone want to do a fairly short Big Pig Bad Tires ride Sunday 1/27/2013? I am being goaded into riding by another inmate and the weather.:lol3

    I was thinking about something like up to Gold Hill from Boulder and then back down lower Magnolia? Maybe lunch in Ned? BTW I have ridden these roads on my RT in the summer. If we head this way remember there will be dirt roads.

    I have no idea what the snow situation is so as usual on a Lomax ride we will probably get lost. :evil

    Thinking about 10:30 meetup some where in Boulder, Spruce Confections at 767 Pearl St.

    Let me know what you think.

    If you guys have a better meet up spot let me know.

    If I can't stir up anything in the NoCo area, I might zip down & join in. I need to get out & meeting new folks would be cool.

    Sunday the 27th, right?

    Everyone can bring what they want. I am going to ride my GS and turn around if we run into icky stuff. (technical term:lol3)

    So this is for big pigs and that is where I am headed. Smaller bikes are welcome but I am not planning on doing Switz or anything like that.

    My plan is nice dirt roads and lunch. But i guess we shall see what the nice dirt roads are like when we get there. If to bad I will be taking another route.

    So don't scare off the n00b that is coming with us.

    So there. :lol3

    So far here is my count.
