I finally listened to the wife and put down the bike and picked up the boots. It was a recon mission of sorts, where there's no bikes allowed, for now. I decided its time to start giving back a bit, and now I'm working with the BoulderMountainbike Alliance to try and convince the city to 1. Open existing trails in this area 2. Create more trail loops in this area. There's huge potential, and if we get half of what we're planning to ask for, I'll have twice as much dirt available for mountain bike tires an easy ride from home.
