    Is there a map for the "peak to peak" ride and if so, where can I get a copy?

    Are you referring to the current ride being discussed?

    Yes I was, but since you brought it up, is there a different "Peak to Peak" route? And thank you for the link

    The only other route I have done that hits the peak to peak highway is the golden canyon,119, coal creak canyon loop.
    There are a few routes that use the peak to peak highway. Routeslip.com and bikely.com have a few.

    The Peak to Peak scenic byway runs from Canon City in the south to Estes Park in the north, and is made of sections of other hightways: 119, 72, 7

    It runs basically along the first ridge of the front range, and there are at least 8 ways to get to it:

    End point at Canon City (several ways to get there by car, ?? by bike)
    Golden Gate Canyon (sweet! short steep bits)
    Coal Creek Canyon (72) (too much traffic, but otherwise very nice)
    Boulder Canyon (119) (way too much traffic)
    Lefthand Canyon (ultra sweet! steep at the top)
    St. Vrain (7) (sweet! smooooth pavement)
    Estes Park (36 from Lyons or 34 from Loveland, both with a bit of traffic)

    So there are a whole bunch of ways to make loops of varying lengths. The high point is Ward (9300 feet) and Meeker (~9000 feet).

    Sorry to say this but are you ever off on your geography Peak-to-Peak starts near Central City/Blackhawk (where CO 119 starts from US6), not Canyon City. Canyon City (proper spelling if you don't have the little ~ over then n) is another 150 miles south. Also it runs through Meeker Park not Meeker. Meeker, CO is over on the west slope.

    Other than that you are good.

    I knew where you meant. Just wanted to make sure someone didn't drive to Canyon City and suddenly realize that they were in for a much longer ride A much, much longer ride! You would ride past lots of peaks however.

    looking for a fast group ride in the 40-70 mile range for tomorrow (sat). Anything? I'm looking around but I'm having a really hard time finding groups. RMCC has something but it's 80 miles from denver. That's a little far for me.

    Thanks,
    B

    There's generally a ride that leaves Amante Coffee in North Boulder at 8:00 on Saturday and Sunday mornings. You might also call Mob Cyclery and see if they have a Saturday ride. I know they usually have a Sunday one.
    Hot's good. Cold is good. Up, down. Those are good, too.

    hey all- i'm looking for a group or another individual who is interested in doing 30-70 mile rides on weekdays- (i am an artist and usually take my rides around 3-5 in the afternnon, but i have some leeway). I keep around a 16 mph avg on the paths- i am a clyde, ride a 62 cm bianchi volpe, and am a pretty good conversationalist and am getting to be a better cyclist...

    i dont ahve a car, and so start my rides usually from the CC bike path. Im looking to do a cetury before spring starts(ive done a metric century already)

    anyways- let me know!

    I came here hoping to find motivation to get out and ride, or spin, or ride the rollers...

    I guess we are all out doing other things. Guess its back to the gym and skiing.

    Just go ride!!!!

    I'm out there every day! Of course, I'm just doing transportational/utility rides right now... but that's anywhere from 5 to 30 miles a day. Most days 15-20 miles.

    Thanks BMC & Snowy. We just moved. Well, are still in the process of moving. Perhaps once life settles back down I'll have a bit more motivation to ride.

    I've only been once so far. I am excited to get out a few more times this year.

    Even decided on my big ride for this year will be the Climb to Kaiser in CA. Should be quite the challenge.
