Old, fat, and slow....yeah, that sounds like me. I need to get in some rides before the weather completely changes too. Wednesday is about the only night after work that I can't ever do. Thing is, it's hard for me to leave work before 4pm.....and I don't have lights!

Can't ride Jeff Co trails an hour after Sunset anyway, so lights are moot.

Friday afternoons at 4:00 or 4:30PM??

Green Mountain is a great late fall/winter alternative because it is close, stays light longer and prety fun singletrack.

If you're on a bike, do you have to pay to get into Bear Creek Lake Park? I would like to try a Friday afternoon ride, but unfortunately I can't this week, and I'd probably only be able to make every-other week anyway if I can even make it work out. I hate working on the east side of town...

I did Chimney Gulch last night. On trail by 3:45, off trail by 5PM. Lighting was just enough to finish.

Maybe we can do a Green Mountain ride one of these days??

I wish I could get out of work early enough to get all the way across town before it gets dark.

Where you night riding Dave? Green Mountain? That could be fun... Kind if getting burned out riding solo these days.

Last Sunday on a ride with some friends I lowered my saddle and made an attempt at riding down "the Wall." It actually wasn't that bad with the saddle down, even on a hardtail. I think I'm finally getting used to my moto-style brakes too, which helps with tricky stuff like that.

I'm hoping this year will be better than last for mtb for me...

Anyone ridden the Indian Creek area near Rampart? I was there this past Sunday and it was pretty good, I got lost and had to find my way back out . If you don't like crowds it seems like the place to be. Right now it's the start of the Colorado Trail since Waterton Canyon is closed.
