Couldn't scrounge up a riding buddy for Saturday, but rallied (two weeks off the bike definitely helps in the motivation department) for the 6am start anyway.
Saddled up and rode a figure-eight that was recommended by Yann. Something along the lines of Sourdough ---> Wapati ----> Little Raven ---> South Saint Vrain.
Stellar stuff there for sure. Pretty much unrelentingly technical and physical for 16+ miles.
Damage tally included loose bolt on the rear shock, shedding a tire and flatting, broken shoe and an exploding tube.
Couldn't resist heading down to Lyons afterward for a delicious burger and Dale's Pale Ale.
