Anyone leaving from Denver? I'm thinking of maybe going if I can get off work. I'm kind of a newbie but can ride the intermediate stuff at Rampart (which is probably easy) and some of the black labeled trails(the new single track there killed me :) ) on a plated KTM 525exc. Hoping to do the B loop but I'd even do the C so I wouldn't hold people up. It would be nice to car pool though so hit me up.

You should have no issues with that bike on the B-loop. I've removed some of the B-loop sections used last year, and labeled them optional "B+" loops.

My rating system is much more conservative than an enduro. B-loop will only have ~15 miles of single track.

If you are fairly good at navigation, you can even start on the A-loop, and switch to the B-loop if you find it too difficult.

Should have asked this earlier, but is the C loop okay on a big pig with reasonable rider competence ... on streetish tires?

Knobbies and even Tourances not available for my odd size. I've been up jeep roads like Bunce School and Pole Hill, limitation is always traction. Figured I'd better ask before I beach it somewhere and block the trail.

You should be fine. The C-loop is designed for big bikes and consists of pavement and graded dirt roads.

Look at the this link Front Range Riders for loop descriptions.

We pre-rode the "C" routes on Friday. Both the Sat and Sun routes are well maintained county or FS gravel roads. I rode the Sat route and only found one short section that was a bit sketchy. It was signed as "End Of Winter Maintenance" and "May Be Impassable When Wet". That section north of Stmbt along with about 1-2 miles of rocky road on the west side of Buffalo Pass were the only places that required some special attention. It is an awesome route .

Yeahbut..... Somebody is going to have to revisit the C loop this Friday to post the 10mph speed limit on the section with endangered plants.

Seeing as registration doesn't start till 3:00 pm on Friday, I'm guessing there are no rides scheduled for Friday, right?

That's correct. The scheduled A, B, and C loops are for Saturday and Sunday. Sunday's loops are of a length to get you back to the fairgrounds in time to pack up to meet our 4 p.m. deadline to vacate the premises.

Thanks.

One more question; how strict is the street legal rule? Specifically, do I need to fix my horn before I get there?

I think you need to be plated.

Get my PM? Having any luck with the GIS data or maps? I'm sure you're just sitting around with you feet up looking for things to do before this ride.
