Damn, glad I saw this I can just make it 1 hour left :D but damn still have to fly to Miami and then Denver so, unfortunately I can't :( Will this be a snow bike ride or normal MTB? Have fun and post pics.

Hope everyone on the FR had a great X-mas.

ft. collins folks,

i am actually thinking of heading up your way tomorrow from Denver, but wondering a) will it be too muddy if we get up into the 50s tmrw? Whats the best combination to ride that is currently rideable? (how would I get there)

Got lazy and just did coyote/bluesky. Most of the trail was dry. Took some video (no audio)...you may want to click into youtube and select high quality.

Fun w/ the stairs...

Rimrock...
You made all that look way easier than it is.

Hey Cytoe, looks like a great ride, where'd all the snow go? Thanks for posting up the vids, nice to see the steps done both ways, next time make it at least look a little challenging ;) Inspires me to give them a try next time I make it up there :thumbsup:

I rode most of the Foothills Trail today, along with the Reservoir Ridge loop at the north end. It was mostly dry. Couple of small areas of frozen mud that could be thawed tomorrow, but just be sure to ride straight through.

Park at the park at the end of Horsetooth Road, or at the parking lot just south of the stadium and follow the signs. You could also park at the Michaud Lane or Reservoir Ridge trail head on the north end and ride south. Click link for map.

Do it as an out and back with some variations that are easy to see, but not on the map.

Thanks! And you would do this route say over Blue Sky down to Coyote (I've done Blue Sky from the DBB direction)?

I have not ridden Blue Sky in a couple of weeks, so could not say what today's conditions are like. In the above videos, Blue Sky and Coyote look OK, with some snow, but I didn't click on the hi-res versions to see if the brown parts were dry dirt or frozen mud. Have fun either way.

What time are you riding, and what kind of bike? I'll keep an eye out for you.

I'll be up at either HTMP or foothills trail around noon - Yeti 575 with a green seat, flat pedals, and skate helmet. Rode too much on the dirt-jumper yesterday and my back and shoulders need the break . . .

Probably be starting at the pineridge end of foothills.

Are there any DJ open in the Fort area? My shoulders and back could need the exercise...

It's good

hi all,

does anyone know the trail conditions for ginny?

thanks,
P"
It was in awesome shape yesterday morning w/ half the trail being dry(more than I expected), and the rest was hard-packed grippy snow, and hardly any ice. I'ld skip it if you're riding when it's above freezing, and hit the reservoir area trails instead, or go do Youngs Gulch as it holds the cold real well.
