Wednesday “Roses” Group

Due to last year’s “Wednesday jinx” weather-wise, let’s try something different. You will have to join the Yahoo group to find out where/when we will ride. Melba will try to pick a day with good weather and post a ride on the Yahoo group a couple of days ahead. We may also vary the ride location. Leaders: Please volunteer your choice of day/place, email or phone me early in the week, and I will post it on the Yahoo group. To sign up for the Yahoo Group, send an email to:

Questions: Contact Melba Bouquet, or 720-493-0564.

Weekday Skiing with DBTC

Lin Hark and Sue Frakes are leading weekday ski trips to Loveland this season. If you would like to join these trips you will want to be on the Yahoo Group list. Loveland also has the Ski Hooky Days which are the second Thursday of the month, December – March.

Watch for updates and more info in the Yahoo Group emails. There may be some snowshoe and cross country ski days too, so watch for these too.

To join the Colorado Bicyclist Yahoo Group send blank email to If you would like to get a group together to go to another area simply put it on Yahoo and/or MeetUp.

Alpine skiing with your DBTC friends is offered as a gathering of friends and is NOT a sanctioned activity of Denver Bicycle Touring Club. Participating in skiing with DBTC friends means you will accept full responsibility for your own safety.

EARLIER START TIME – Daylight Savings Time starting

FUN/INT-2/3-20/30-NESW-10:00 AM Start Time. Unless there is a leader named, WINTER rides will be Show-N-Go. The riders who show up on these days will decide among themselves the route, the mileage, the pace and the after-ride restaurant. The starting locations will be places where many rides have begun in the past and thus several riders will have an idea of possible routes to be taken. You can go to and hit the Start Locations button for more detailed directions to most of the starting points or possibly maps of rides from that location.
