Wanted: MTB Partner! Need motivation!!! lol I am a west sider and live in Ivywild. I do both road and trail but I am mainly looking to ride from 4:15-5:15 on Tue/Thurs in Stratton Open Space near Cheyenne Mtn HS. I'm slower right now cause I've been slacking so. I just want to ride for fun, not training. Women preferably or a group of people would be cool too!

I'm leading winter indoor cycling group rides and elevation training for Mountain Top Cycling Club in Woodland Park. We are riding Thursday nights from 7:00 to 8:15 at Woodland Park Middle School auditorium. Bring your own bike and indoor trainer. Set up from 6:30 to 6:55 pm. We are using Seek Out Cycling movies (www.seekoutcycling.com) on a 200" screen. The first six weeks are the six stages of Ride the Rockies 2011 edition. Come on up to 8500 feet this winter and ride with us. For insurance reasons, you must join Mountain Top Cycling Club to participate in this 14 week indoor cycling training project - it's only $25. See www.mountaintopcycling.com. Join us for indoor cycling adventures.

How would you like to see 12 miles of singletrack right downtown? It can happen...

Awesome Hot Lap ride last night. The hard rain missed CMSP, just enough to give the corners a little extra speed. We upgraded from 1 person to 3 people. At this rate we will have all of COS out there by next summer. Next week 5:30 CMSP, a little different course but same idea. Hope to see a few more of you next week.

Hey Dave! Thanks for the info on Crested Butte. Wish I was there right now.

For all interested, Crested Butte was fantastic. We rode Snodgrass first, the opening climb really makes you work for the downhill to follow. Gorgeous views no matter where you are on the ride. The climb from Gothic was through field of wild flowers (and some plant I've never seen before.) The opening of the single track on the downhill side was very green, making the trail disappear beyond the straight you were on. Flowing, soft and fast through the pine and aspen groves with welcome shade in the 80+ temps. The final drop back to Washington Gulch Road was a blast! Fast open field with a bridge over the one stream crossing. The 3000 extra feet of altitude certainly made me work for it. The following day we rode parts of Upper Loop and Upper Upper Loop. Great fun as well. The rocky trail certainly kept my focus. When we were lucky enough to be in the woods we got wonderful single track with some good tight turns followed by some technical downhills. The relaxing ride back to town for a pint or two was a great cool down. If you happen to stay on Mt Crested Butte, the shuttle will haul you and your bike up the hill for free if you need the rest after your day on the trails. I can recommend this town very highly. And don't hesitate to take the roadie if you prefer!

Need a hammer session? Tonight at CMST. Be there 5:30, ready to ride just after.

does anyone want to ride buffalo creek on the 4th?
Comment by CODave on June 29, 2011 at 11:33am

Thanks Cameron, someone online said 401 was closed on the 6/4, but I'll check in when I get there. I appreciate the guidance. Singletracks rates it a black diamond which will scare the wife, but sounds like fun to me! Snodgrass sounds like a great ride too based on my search.
