Cool. I'll put it down for me. It will be good to get those legs moving on my bike. I rode the trainer lastnight and I wasn't liking the part of not going anywhere

I have a few ideas of some rides, I'm very open to suggestions though and would apperciate any imput

11th works fine with me too.

Depending on what time you go I might be able to swing the 11th. Let me know so that I might be schooled in the ways of roadbiking.

As long as it's above 45 degrees and the roads aren't a mess, I should be able to make it on the 11th. Starting late morning/ early afternoon will give us the best chance for sun & warm temps.

I've yet to take any rides in the Denver area, but I'm open to just about any route.

Since everyone is good with the 11th its a go. Pray for no new snow around that time.

I just got back from Glenwood Springs, we took our mountain bikes up there in hopes of getting to ride. The plan was to ride the bike trail along the canyon. We got to ride about 5miles before we came across this hugh gate "Bike path closed for season". We would have ridden thru but there was a CDOT guy watching us.
Anyhoo, it was snow packed. We went on to the hot springs.
You'll quickly learn that all of Colorado is under some sort of snow.

As for ride route. I'm up for anything. I'll put out some ideas this week.

Weather looks good all week except they're calling for snow on Friday (Wouldn't wanna break our 7 week streak, now, would you? )

Saturday and Sunday are looking to be mid-40's... just gotta see what that little disturbance Friday does to us.

Does anyone know how much snow this Friday. I checked Saturday on Denverchannel.com and it says snow Friday and Saturday. If that is the case maybe we should push back the ride for the next week??

Any suggestions??

as for a route, I'll see if I can drive some options this week. Off the top of my head there's Sloan's Lake to Golden and back --it's not terribly long, but the roads should be pretty clean. Here's a quick routeslip fo Sloan's to the Judicial Center and back. ~28mi http://www.routeslip.com/routes/20884

There is a parking lot at W 21st Ave and Stuart St; looking at the google map it's the parking lot north east of the island (switch the view to "Hybrid" to see the island)
