UPCOMING RIDES!!! 



Friday, May 27th:

9:30 LEISURE H1–17 SE Meet Dave Noble (home 303-694-2008, cell 303-906-3163) at the Wheatlands Community Park (S. Wheatlands Parkway) to ride a couple times around Aurora Reservoir.  (Directions: From S. Parker and E. Arapahoe Rd., go east past E470 to S. Tallyn's Reach Pkwy, go north across Smoky Hill Rd on S. Ider St to Wheatlands Pkwy, then right to the community park.)  Note that this starting point is MUCH easier than riding from Southlands Shopping Ctr.  Afterwards we'll have lunch in Southlands Shopping Center.


Saturday, May 28th:

9:00 AM FUN PLUS-H3-21 NW (1541 ft of elevation gain) HIDDEN GEMS OF GOLDEN!!! Meet Jeff Krinsky (720-373-9107) for this fairly new Hidden Gems adventure around beautiful Golden. We will meet at the Lions Park parking lot which is on the left at 10th and Maple by the softball field restrooms in Golden. We will then ride the Golden Circle, Tucker Gulch, and beyond to Heritage Park and other unexplored areas.  This ride has been improved each time that I lead it so I can now promise you a rose garden!!! (UPDATE: Now includes the brand new HWY 6 trail into the foothills!) 


Sunday, May 29th:

NEW RIDE

9 am- Fun Plus/INT- H3 (elev 1150’)22-SE Meet on the SE side of King Soopers Marketplace between King Soopers & 3 Margaritas restaurant (25701 E. Smoky Hill Rd. Aurora, CO 80016).  We will take Powhaton Rd and go around Aurora Reservoir, then take Powhaton Rd/Harvest Rd through a neighborhood bike path to High Plains Trail/HPT from Quincy to Smoky Hill Rd and across, to Red Tailed Hawk Park and Irish Dr/Sampson Gulch to Powhaton Rd back to our starting point.  We will regroup at the top of each climb.  Bring $$ for lunch at Dion’s Pizza after the ride.


NEW RIDE

10:30 AM, MTB NW Make your fun plans for the dirt trail tribe gathering. The annual ride is ON again. This is the mountain bike ride leading into summer season. Join tribe members at the trail head, before they break into clans.

Route is following Marshall Mesa to Community Ditch, back to the Marshall Mesa climb southward. Cross Hwy 93 at the southwest corner of the Greenbelt area, then go southwest to Doudy Draw. Explore the Vista trails before descending the rocky gulch dropping into Spring Brook loop. Ride the circle counter-clockwise while thinking about your summer adventures. Return via Community Ditch and the Hwy 93 underpass.

As usual, compare notes at Southern Sun Brewpub. Southern Sun is about 3 miles north of the trailhead, in the Table Mesa Shopping Center. Order and sandwich and get a refreshing drink.

Please keenly NOTE: Southern Sun is CASH only!

Fine print NOTE: about 1 out of 3 or 4 years, this ride has been re-scheduled due to rain. Perhaps that would be nice this very dry year. In any case, a weather and trail condition check will be made about 2 days in advance. Please watch for comments whether this will happen or will need to be re-scheduled.


Monday, May 30th:  Memorial Day

9:00AM FUN/FUN PLUS-H2-24-NW Meet Merri Bruntz (303-517-9781) at Anderson Park (44th & Field St) for a ride west on the Clear Creek Trail to Easley Rd, which we will take north to the Blunn Trail and the west side of the Westwoods Golf Course along the Ralston Creek Trail.  After a break we will return via Virgil Way and Easley Rd leading us to the Clear Creek Trail and back to the park.  Bring a sack lunch for a picnic afterwards.
