    Anybody want to do a dirt type DS ride Sunday ? Dirtbike stuff with some roads inbetween.

    Meet near Sedalia and ride Rampart Trails to Rainbow Falls and then to the Divide trail system. Might even get some color still. Dirt oriented fast single track type stuff. Little history, all fast riding fun, chasing each other through the trees. The traction should be perfect with the recent precip.

    Senor Verde,

    Just got off the phone w/309. We'd love to go. :thumb

    Send the time when you've got it, we'll probably throw the bikes in the truck and haul to Sedalia.

    Come on out folks, it could snow on Tuesday and put an end to offroad for the season and then you'll regret not going. This is all close stuff. You'll never be more than 50 or 60 miles from Denver or the Springs. Lots of bail out points if you want to go home early. Nothing difficult, but lots of "single" and 1.5 track to zip through the woods on. Really fun stuff. These two areas are unique and large all things considered.

    CU there.

    Hey all,

    I road Rampart Range Rd. to Mt. Herman Rd. this afternoon. I thought you might like a little description of the conditions there.

    In a word

    SNOW!!!


    There's about 3" of the shit on the shady trails and a good amount on the road.

    Have fun! Dress warm!

    If you guys decided to bail out due to the white stuff (yeah right, I'm ludicrous-it's the meds) swing by my house around 9am for WeeChiff's big surprise
    Have a blast!
    Dave, Thanks again for the mirror!!!

    I gonna ride up so that at the end of the day I can just come home via woodland park/hwy24

    I'll go up to palmer lake via I-70 then take 105 to sedalia. I've got the KLX geared low so it will only do 60-65 on the road. I'll probably leave CS around 645 am

    Natalie, hopefully it will not be too much longer before you are back out riding again but it does appear that you are making excellent use of your time. That is really cool take pictures.
