This morning, we worked on new trail construction at a nearby County Open Space called Heil Ranch. It neighbors Lyons, but the closest trailhead is a 20 min drive. There's lots of more fun places within 20 min, so we don't ride there often. Today was the first public workday for a new trail, about 3 miles long that creates a second loop in the park. In another year or so, a connector trail will come off this new loop and roll into Lyons. Can't wait.
Dale from Oskars helped out with the necessary beer and food afterwards. We obliged. Then we rode. We drove up to Miller Rock for a little ride. It was snowing on and off the entire ride. The moisture was great, though - the dirt was about perfect. We stopped to scramble to the top of Miller Rock. The views from up there are sweet, but it was a little cloudy.
then we rode some more.
It was a great day, bikes, trails, beer. good stuff.
