    Bob, can be at the Stone Cup before 9am. Is there a place to park where I won't get a ticket or towed? I know Lyons is tough on speeding offenders.

    Hi Guys. Just wondering if anyone will have room for me in your car pool. I'm coming from Denver/west minster and could drive to any car pool location. :)

      You are welcome to ride with me from Longmont or Lyons but I'd bet you can find a ride from the 88th & Sheridan P&R.

    I just moved to dwntn Denver and work here as well, so getting a car is not in my plans for the near future. I would like to join you guys in the upcoming meetup, but I would need a ride. Tell me where we could meet, I will "google map it" and get there by bus.
    Thanks!

      I'm trying to confirm the planned route from 88th & Sheridan to Ouzel Falls to see if you can meet the 88th & Sheridan group in Lyons.
