FRUITA!

Anyone going to be in the Fruita, CO area this weekend? We're heading out for a long weekend of mountain biking and will be camped at 18 Rd or in the BLM lands just west of there in the Bookcliffs area.

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!!! (Yes Jage, I am shouting.)

That road looks too narrow for a Sportsmobile

I've never been there, but would really like to ride that area. We did a family road trip through Utah's national parks in Feb and the scenery is fantastic. Hopefully, I'll do an MTB/camping trip in Utah next year.

I notice we have a lot of MTB riders here, so perhaps we can coordinate a group outing?

Welcome to the area! I feel blessed to be able to ride there before work in the mornings!
I would love to join you for some biking but my wife and I are going to the San Rafael Swell this weekend.
If you need any info on trails or camping let me know.
Have a blast, the weather is supposed to be perfect!
Josh

Hey Josh! Fruita is like a second home for us in the spring and fall. Let's hook up one of these times so I can check out your rig.

Have a good time this weekend! Post some pics!

Adam

Saw a black SMB with the penthouse popped at the 18 Rd trailhead on Saturday. Anyone here?

Great time in Fruita with the SMB. Some pics to follow.

Heading down to Fruita Weds-Sun this week to work the Fat Tire Festival (OK, and ride too).

If anyone is down riding swing by the Rocky Mtn tent to say Hi! and check out a new ride. Will probably be parked out at Mary's and 18rd, just look for the Red Van...

(may even have a frosty beverage or two for post ride enjoyment...)

Cheers,

-derek

Sounds good! I think i'm helping the Hot Tomato Cafe a bit in the evening on the 26th. Come on down to Aspen St (my house, 2 blocks to the east of Fat Tire) the afternoon of the 26th if ya feel like it. Free beer & pizza etc.
