We had a great time. One of us had 3 flats! We did about 20 miles and then had a nice lunch at the Lighthouse Cafe in Parker, right off of the trail. Hwy 40 Blue, DnvrFox, NoraFox, Sandwarrior and bentnail along with two friends, Nancy and Beth. Here are some pics. I'll let others post their thoughts.

Glad to see that the priorities were right but couldn't see any pie.
Sounds like a great day for a ride and with such a select crew- can see why the Fuel replenishment was necessary.
Now who had the 3 flats?
Hwy 40 Blue

One of our, ahem, guests. Not a Bike Forum member! Dnvr Fox was an excellent ride leader, guiding us fearlessly down (and back up) the Cherry Creek Regional Trail. Bravo!

No pie. But I see some pickles.

Guy & Nora looking bike-snazzy. Nora is wearing the original BFN Jersey from several years back.
Bent Nail, AKA Guy, with his bent
Bill is either praying or, more likely stretching those 50+ leg
muscles before the Big Ride. Dig the bent!
Hwy 40 Blue and her trusty Bike Friday
The full regalia. Ready to roll.
Our fearless leader, Denver C Fox. In socks and sandals, no less.
L to R, Bent Nail bends to his task while Sand Warrior, Nancy &
DnvrFox supervise. Little did we know this was just the bgeinning ...
The 50+ ers, L to R: Nancy, Hwy 40 Blue, Beth, DnvrFox, Bent Nail &
Dnvr Fox & Sand Warrior doing what you do a lot on a group bike
ride: Hang out at the Porta Pottie.

Looks and sounds like you guys had a great ride. Great report and pics.

That looks like you guys had a great time. Makes me I wish I lived closer to Denver.

I don't get it. Everyone in those pics looks WAY too young to be in the 50+ Forum! :)

Thanks for the pics. Sounds like a great ride and the food looks delicious.

Looks like you satisfied the "smiles per mile" rule. Makes me wish we were closer -- I <3 Colorado.
Thanks for sharing the ride & pics!
