A new restaurant in the northwest quadrant of the I-70 and Hwy 93 intersection. It is near the Origin Hotel and Kum and Go. A good place to start and end rides. Parking right near the restaurant or we can always use the ‘overflow’ parking in the old commuter lots closer to I-70.

Let's start out the 2020 season with a big group to shake off the winter rust together.  We'll start off from Launch Espresso again as we did last year and head south through Red Rocks then through Morrison to the C470 path where we continue south. We go through Ken Caryl and at Deer Creek we head west a bit then go up Grizzly and down Cougar back to Deer Creek. Then it's east toward Wadsworth but before we get…

Time to start adding some vertical to our rides!  We start at Launch again and go to Golden, up Lookout Mtn., take a quick break at the Nature Center then head up Mt Vernon to Genesee. Once across the I-70 overpass we can do the 3.8 mile (round trip) spur up to the end of pavement on Genesee Mountain and back. (Skipping this is a good way to shorten the route if desired). Then we head east and do the…

So Wednesday's ride was long with not much vertical. Today's ride is not too long but has substantial vertical. HOWEVER, there are a couple of short cuts that would reduce the climbing by quite a bit. The full route leaves Launch and heads directly to Golden and then up LO Mtn. Then we head through the nature center and Mt. Vernon Country Club area to Genesee. The main route goes up the road to Genesee Mtn and back which involves…

Okay, another longer route that doesn't involve a whole lot of climbing. We leave Launch and head south to the Fort and then down Turkey Creek, south on C-470 bike trail, and through Ken Caryl, taking Deer Creek, Wadsworth, Waterton Rd, Rampart Range, to the Roxborough gate. Then heading back on a bit of gravel (Roxborough Park Rd) then into Chatfield and back via the C-470 bike trail. The gravel section is hard packed and very rideable but it can…
