    The Denver/parker Ride

    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?
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    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!

    That looks like you guys had a great time. Makes me I wish I lived closer to Denver.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

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

    Looks like you satisfied the "smiles per mile" rule. Makes me wish we were closer -- I <3 Colorado.

    Thanks for sharing the ride & pics!
