Click on the link and walk away. I've got a good connection at work, but it still took exactly a minute to load (which seems like 15 mins when you're staring at the screen the whole time).

It's a little picky and slow. Try it again later? It worked for me.

Yeah, they're having the same kind of growing pains as BikeForums.

OK, if someone would please post the ride info. All this talk has made it a little confusing.

Talked to Kyle at Westside Cycle and he's in for Sunday. (Wimped out on riding tonight, though... Funny how a little snow does that to people)

Bah. I messed up the route... Paradise Hills Park 'n Ride is at Exit 256... that's where we're starting/ending. I'll re-do the route and post it.

Everyone eat well before ride and bring snacks

BM thanks for putting the route together.

Hrmm... I don't like that the route goes over the same stretch of highway 3 times between the park 'n ride and 26...

Anybody ever ride Grapevine through Genessee to Bear Creek? We could drop down on that and into Red Rocks...

Or, rather than make a figure-8 we could go through Redrocks first then Lookout Mtn ( Like this ), but people would probably be more tired. Bah... I've decided I hate planning routes.

And I've come to the decision that both RouteSlip.com AND bikely.com suck.

I cannot get routeslip to work at all. Doesn't matter what computer I am on. It is a blank window (no map, I see everything else). I even created a log in thinking that might be the problem. What program runs it, Java?

I'm basically up for whatever route is planned, as long as it's not full of stoplights. But yeah, planning routes can be a pain as all the route planning sites suck in way way or another -- but at least they're free.

Have you ever used http://www.toporoute.com/routePlanner.html ? It doesn't give step by step directions when you're done, but it's fairly simple to use. When you're done mapping the route, click the "Link to Route" button and it creates a url for your route.

Ok, for Snowy and Pwnt:

Be at Paradise Hills Park 'n Ride(Location: I-70 @ exit 256) at Noon on the 18th. Follow the other bikes.

*ducks and runs*

Sorry, not trying to confuse people. We'll stick to the figure-8 that Superdex suggested, ok? I'll post up the route map and route slip at lunchtime.

I routed this ride today from a book ("Road Biking Colorado, a great book) and hope to scout it out in the next week or so.

http://www.toporoute.com/cgi-bin/get...WHJKFFXQKFQEHI

I'm thinking I'll be ready to try this one in mid/ late March. Do I hear group ride?

B you rock; I didn't think I had the start location right (there is a park-n-ride there, but it's not Paradise Hills). I'm still out (mostly, small outside chance), so have fun!

There are two locations that LOOK like Park 'n Rides on satellite views, but they're not claimed as such on RTD's site... I didn't want to take a chance with parking in what might be a private lot (Or rather, chance that one of YOU would park in a private lot ) and get ticketed and/or towed.

Last time I was over Grapevine (2004 or so), it was dirt from I70 to Bear Creek. Probably not very good riding for skinnys. And it tends to be shaded so it's gonna be messy...muddy, icy, etc.

If we do the Red Rocks / Morrison Loop afterwards, it'll total about 4,000 ft of climbing. Is that enough for you?

Or, hell... do the reverse Lookout Mountain loop ... The climb is supposed to be steeper than Lookout Mtn itself... Lookout Mtn Rd was built to MINIMIZE the grade.
