what the fuck, that seems excessive.

may or may not come up with a few people.

can we BYOCR?


#122

Yeah, that was for two officers in cars plus signs or something.

We lose out the official cinnamon roll stop at The Forks, BYO is certainly an option. It is quite possible that some good samaritan could appear on the side of the road with cinnamon roll handups - there have been bacon handups in the past.


#123

Were you compelled by some third party to make the ride “official”, or was this out of good faith?


#124

I don’t think there was an official request to go legit. The ride got big enough to get noticed, and the word got out that officials knew about it and weren’t happy, so this year they went and got the permits and insurance. I also think the founders were getting nervous about personal liability. When you have 100+ riders and random people coming up from other areas the odds of accidents and misunderstandings go up.


#125

Does anybody know anybody at Yeti (bikes not coolers)? Applying for an engineering job there and it would be cool to have a contact.


#126

Also does anybody know anybody at Moots or Big Agnes. Really trying to move to CO this summer.


#127

Can’t help you with contacts at those three, but you may want to look at Oakes Manufacturing in Fort Collins - they do all the CNC work for Moots and some other bike companies. I know someone over there.


#128

No contacts but I was told that Moots only advertises jobs locally (Maybe worth checking the Steamboat Pilot newspaper)
