First Ride of the Season! Golden to Chatfield
March 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
First Ride of the Season!
Time to brush off the saddle, lube the chain, pump up the tires and ride! Launch Espresso will be our starting point (located in the new commercial area in the NW quadrant of I-70 and Hwy 93 – near the Harley dealership). Get there a little early and enjoy a coffee or a snack. Meet at 9:45, ride leaves at 10:00am. The temps will be chilly but not bad. Dress appropriately.
Once we go through the early season introductions etc. we head south through Red Rocks, Morrison, on through Bear Creek Park then on the C-470 bike path to where we enter the Ken Caryl neighborhood. Then we hit Deer Creek and go west a bit and turn south on Grizzly for about a 2 mile loop. (Short option is to just head east on Deer Creek.) Once back on Deer Creek we head east to nearly Wadsworth but turn back and get on the bike path again at Kipling. Then it’s back to Bear Creek Park and then on Rooney Rd., over Dinosaur Ridge and back to the start via Hwy 93.
Our friends from Bicycle Colorado will be joining us to start the season with a bang. Keep it together, rules of the road, people. 🙂 After the ride, the first round at launch is on TE! Join us to meet your new favorite riding partners over a beer (or two). Don’t forget to sign the online waiver! Do it once and you are good for the whole season!
Update! Show up early and get a free bike safety check from Velofix. Look for the van in the parking lot and have them look over your ride before the season begins.
