COLORADO CLYDE RIDES, Lets do this

It was brought up in another post ( http://www.bikeforums.net//showthrea...317&highlight= ) and I think it is a great idea, I would really like to meet more people and get out on the bike more. Right now I have 2 rides in the "PLANS" for next summer.

1. My first century: Colorado Springs to Buena Vista


My wife said she would be a sag wagon/safety vehicle to follow us up and carry tube/tires etc. Starting location TBD ( I was gonna start at my house.. but if more come I will change that) and ending at the Ice Cream Parlor in BV.

2. Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek Loop


This will be a mountain bike route. I am planning on going from Gold Camp to Old Stage. I am still looking at what I want to do for a return trip, I thought about Hwy 24 but I am really interested in returning on the Ring the Peak trails. Still working on this. Here is a link for the Ring The Peak -> http://www.fotp.com/ringthepeak/index.html





I am all ears and am up for suggestions. I can put people up at my house if you need to come down the day before. I also have a camper to sleep a couple if enough decide to do so.

I want to do it. I think that the routes should end back where they start, so that people driving from out-of-town will have an easy way home. It is a little over 1.5 hours of driving from here to the springs.
