Friend in from England, wants to do some mountain biking, are there any groups that need extra folks?

I need to find a place to rent her a bike as well.  Can anybody help?  She'll be here housesitting for us, so I won't be much help to her.  Thanks all, Pete

Friend in from England, wants to climb, anybody need a partner?

She has her harness, chalk bag, shoes, and belay device...now all she needs is a partner.  She'll be her until the 19th of August.  Can somebody point her in the direction of a good partner or group?

"I'll probably go with GotG to start as it is predictable, but I will definitely look into Cheyenne Mountain State Park.  Any ideas on how to get around the $7 parking fee?"

"Tim,   Thanks for the info.  I have run on the greenway several times, but I was hoping for a little more terrain variation.  Any ideas?   Thanks again, Pete"

"Hi folks, new to the group.  I'm looking for a good (preferably trail) run to do with a double jogging stroller.  I get more time to run if I push the kids.  Thanks all, Pete"

Another thought, is Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Some trails there are doable with a stroller ... but I don't know how many miles you'll get. If you find something, please share your info!

Hey Pete,

One of the best places for strollers is the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail, Colorado Springs' most popular urban trail. This is a wide, flat gravel path with some hard-surface stretches. It's popular with runners and cyclists and you'll see lots of moms and dads pushing running strollers there. You can go for miles on the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail, which connects Palmer Lake and Fountain Creek Regional Park. Here is a link to the City of Colorado Springs map ... http://www.springsgov.com/units/parksrec/maps/mppgrnwya.htm.

This is the link to the city's Urban Trails page http://www.springsgov.com/Page.aspx?NavID=1881

Have fun!
