Hell, we've gotta do a ride on Shearboy's Birthday. It's hard enough turning 40 as it is!
If you can't get your group together for the 17th, and ya wanna ride, I'm IN.

So... this Saturday, right? I'm IN, if you guys will have me.

Mark, I rode Donner with Helen two weeks ago. Hopefully she can vouch for me that I'm not a noob, since I haven't ridden with any of you guys yet. Just new to Fort Collins...

Mate if this ride was about skill levels and being vouched for then I would be WAY out of the league

This ride is more about perseverance stamina stupidity and being slightly masochistic ! PSSSM

Be great to meet you Helen was both impressed with your riding and team spirit .

Ray is a go for Saturday so just waiting on Tom's doc visit today to get his clearance and hopefully we are good to go.

Pack something good for your lunch as we will eat at the bottom of Killpecker before turning round .

Yes, but that was a "chick ride", eh? Mark, I suggest that you require a formal resume and a list of at least 6 references before allowing noobs to join in.

I need a good excuse to get the 300 out and tear the rest of the knobs off the rear tire. When is the key time? Someone should check with Rustic & verify they will have gas. They ran out the other day.

Holy crap there are more PSSSM folks on this list than I thought

Ray is suggesting a meet at Moody at 7am , he will be riding the extended version as I'm sure he will ride down Storm and then back up the bugger in the dark after we have all finished , he's fuckin nuts though

98 miles was what we put in the last time we did it, probably a good 5 of that was wheel spin up the Rowdy section though.

I haven"t failed getting gas at Rustic yet but if you wanna check Jeff that would be good.

Shit just thought , I haven't ridden Swamp Creek this year , anyone got the goods on it ? Have all the rocks and roots been moved ?
