    Anyone want to come ride in Indianapolis? I got an apartment in the city and there's some pretty good urban stuff to ride. There's just no one around here who rides....

    I live in Warsaw about 2 or 2.5 hours north.
    We've got some okay stuff to ride.
    theres me and 2 or so other guys that ride seriously around here. then theres like 5 uni trials guys, there okay to ride with, 2 of them are super good.
    I work at trial house bike shop in winona lake, we've also got a awesome mtb trial over 10 miles of single track as well, that is if you ride xc.

    We got some nice riding in Purdue as well. I could come up to Indy as well though.

    Isaac, I've actually ridden with you before at Sam's House. I am the mototrials rider who has the Brisa. anyway, anyone is welcome to come to Indy to ride and stay with me anytime. The Purdue riding sounds good too, let's try to arrange a weekend within the next month or so.

    If you come this weekend, I'm may be out of town on sunday day, but we could ride friday or saturday. I don't have any classes friday if that works for you. You're welcome to stay at my apartment fri. or saturday night. Let me know OR....I may be able to go to Purdue on Sunday but that's a very slim chance...

    ahhh, sorry about this, but the only day I'll be able to ride this weekend is tomorrow- friday. I bought a new truck and need to pick that up on saturday, then I have to work on sunday. So unless someone's game for riding friday- it doesn't look like it'll happen this weekend. How about the weekend of Nov. 12th? I'm open on friday or saturday of that weekend. let me know.

    Looks like rain for tomorrow- the stuff to ride here is all urban. Mostly big limestone square chunks. There are some big natural rocks too, plenty of railings (I'm not that good yet though). If you want to come feel free to just give me a call. My cell is 317-213-9836. If you can't make it tomorrow, don't worry, I'll definitely be up for riding more in the future.

    ohhh, sorry- this next weekend won't work for me- I have a mototrials event. If you want to come to that you can- but I wouldn't suggest it b/c there's really nothing to ride a bike on there. The next weekend however, Nov. 12 and 13th would be a great time to come. I'll be open all day both of those days and there's alot of people staying at my apartment already for a get-together. If you're interested, let me know.

    I'd love to try to get a ride together somewhere.
    I didn't get to ride trials much this summer, I broke my arm in may and didn't get my cast off till aug. but lately I've been riding a lot. all racing over now so it's only trials!
    I cracked the deslavo a few weeks ago, right infront of the brake boss. I think he's going to make me a new frame. I'm riding a PX right now.
    let me know if you want to ride in chicago some time

    I want to hit up badlands before it gets too cold. Let me know if that intersts you. I will consider the Chicago ride as well after the Thanksgiving week. Indy has a decent amount of stuff to ride, too bad my cassette explosion ended the ride prematurely.
