Golden, Lookout, Genesee, US 40.
May 29 @ 9:00 am
This is a bit of a shorter route as mapped but additional miles can readily be added as desired. We start out at the Parfet Park restrooms in Golden. Parking is either about 1 block east or 4 blocks west of this spot. We basically do Lookout Mtn, the Nature Center, and Mt. Vernon which takes us to the high point of the ride at Genesee. The route shows us then going down US 40, taking Heritage over to the ‘Taj Mahal’ area and back to the start via S. Golden Road. One popular addition is to cross I-70 at Genesee and go up the Genesee Mtn road to the end of the pavement, or even all the way to the top if the gravel is firm enough. This out and back (to end of paving) adds about 3 miles. Other variations are possible depending upon the wishes of the group and the leader.
