Mother's Day Ride - Lair o' the Bear - Level 4

Here's something to do for all you guys and gals who don't have mothers to celebrate with (at least not during the day). Or bring your mother along!

 

Always a fun ride. There's some mileage (13 miles), but not too much. There's some technical, but not too much. There's some climbing (2000 ft total), but not too much. There's some speed (24+ mph), but never enough ;)

 

This is all dependent on there not being too much rain during the week. If that's the case, I'll move the ride to something more exposed and drains better.

Also, I don't allow non-members to ride with us (it's a liability thing). If you have a friend who wants to ride (even if it's your mom today), have them sign up - it's free!

    So great to finally experience everyone's favorite trail. It was a busy Sunday but totally worth the crowd. Nice group of people! I look forward to more rides soon. I'll make sure I'm early next time!

    Thanks for organizing, Kris! Lair remains my FAVORITE ride, but good thing I turned back when I did or I wouldn't missed my tee time. :-O Hope to get to meet more of you next time.

    Very enjoyable ride. So much so that I found myself riding a 2nd time, out and back, since the conditions were so nice. :)

    There was a posting on Mtbr saying that the trail was in good condition yesterday afternoon with no mud.

    Not sure how the RSVP limit got out of hand, I can swear I only allowed 15 but either way, I will need a hand controlling this many riders. Any takers? Anyone have walkie talkies to help out?

    • Jovan F.

      Kris, I have not ridden much with you all but I can help if you still need it

      Kris, don't have any radios, but I can help out with the ride.

    I'm probably more of a level 3
    but I'd at least like to meet at the beginning...and pretend I'm better than I am.

    Thank you.

    I'm going to try and get to Lair early - just need to stop by a shop and get another spare tube - and check out the conditions 1st hand. If it's too wet down at the bottom and on the way up the 1st hill, we can ride Mathew Winters instead.

    Hey ther. Is anyone heading out from around the cherry creek part of town that I might be able to catch a ride to the trailhead with? If not, no worries - ill hop on the light rail. Looking forward to meeting you all!

    I might be the only mom on the ride, so I think everyone should bring me gifts :)
