Super James – St. Vrain Canyon
June 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Absolute classic with good riding, mountain views, riverside, and pink granite canyon. Short well maintained hard gravel section on Overland Rd. while you enjoy view of Indian Peaks. From start of Lefthand Canyon Rd. at U.S. 36, ride to Jamestown and continue up canyon on Overland Rd., across the open fields to P2P Highway, N to Riverside Dr., down Riverside until it joins Rt. 7. In Lyons R on Railroad St. until rejoining Rt. 7 by the minimart, then S on broad shoulder of U.S. 36 to cars.
Short option is to turn back at Jamestown, climb Lee Hill, and return via Olde Stage Rd., a good short workout but without the spectacular features of full route.
The easy short gravel section on Overland Rd. seen on a TE ride.
