Blackhawk to Nederland with option to Eldora

September 30, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Another nice Fall ride that may still give us some Fall foliage color. It is pretty even if the leaves are gone so let’s do it before the higher elevations become too cold.  This has a good amount of climbing involved especially if you ride to the Eldora ski area.  Short option either skips Eldora OR you can ride west in the valley to the old town of Eldora.  The valley route is the same distance but saves 500 vertical. We meet just north of Blackhawk on Hwy 119. Park in the gravel lot on the East side of the road about 0.4 miles beyond the Post Office / Pastry and Coffee shop where we have met previously.  The ride map shows us meeting at the coffee shop but lets move out of the businesses area.

Speaking of pastry etc. there is a nice place in Nederland (The New Moon Bakery) to get a yummy snack if you so desire.  See photo.
