finding the legs

Hit up a little piece of rocky fun down south near my job in castle rock. The hidden mesa open space park. Not a destination ride or anything big but definately some fun riding! Alot of trail damage from horses and bikes. Located near alot of horse property their local trail is easily accessible, but it really needed more time to dry out! The day i rode everything was dry and anything muddy was frozen enough not to cause any further damage.

This is some of the fun rock riding down south. short but fun.

Next up was the t.i.t.s. ride on GM with some of the crew. Nabbed a photo from Jeremy here notice that is my Amoeba set up in that shot.
It was a little bit frosty this evening but temps were very mild. Even hot on the climbs. Jeremy has been on his 5 day a week training schedule for his upcoming tour of local races. Which means i just let him go i'll be up there when i get there. And in a month or so i'll be on his wheel again at least on the climbs!

Saturday brought even warmer temps (which meant job can wait till monday to finish! sorry Klaus!) and dry trail a phrase that has not been used around these parts much this winter. Sure there has been rideable shit you just have to go do it. which as of late i have slacked on!
My legs started coming around today as lubes and i kind of retraced our route from the other night in hopes of finding a couple lost items from the other night. I think sunlight and blue sky are huge motivators, for me at least. Below is the section of box o rox that has really needed work for a long time and some sort of reroute and bridge construction. I have the ball rolling to adopt this section of trail and get out and do some trail maintenance. Gonna be recruiting some of you to join in as well!

May have found my legs but my technical ability has gone to shit! Confidence is lacking and just the natural ability to let go of the brakes and roll stuff. It will come back just need to let it happen. Resist the urge to grab a handful of brake!
Just enjoying riding with good folks and meeting a few new ones.
