    We can meet at the Paradise Hills Park-n-Ride (Address: 22222 US Hwy 40, Golden Location: I-70 @ exit 256) , head north to Lookout, up Lookout, down Hwy 40 (Mt Vernon Canyon Rd, alongside I70), then head south towards Red Rocks and come back north via the C470 trail. It'd be a great figure 8 with some significant climbing....

    what do you kids think?
    Sounds good to me. Although I think I'll have to break out the triple this time. Starting between 11am-Noon will give us the best chance at decent temps, but just about any start time on Sundays is OK with me.

    So... Superdex is out, want me to prepare a route? I can even print up some route slips. I've got a couple route maps, just have to customize them for our start/end. Is that Park 'n Ride good for everyone?

    I know the area like the back of my hand. Only lived in Colorado hmmmm like 32 years.

    I'm cool if you want to make a route though. Include Lookout mountain. The boyfriend is going to ride up Lookout with us on his singlespeed mtb.

    I'm also cool with the park and ride if it works for everyone else.

    Yes, but maybe everyone else doesn't. Especially when we get broken up into two groups. I was towards the front and knew where we were going for the most part, but a route slip would have been nice. Add the fact that we didn't actually follow the route as it was drawn, and it added a little more confusion.

    Also, regroup points? Some set points to regroup would probably be good. I figure at a minimum the base of Lookout Mountain, The top (Buffalo Bill Museum or whatever it is?) and Red Rocks Park.

    Lemme know what you want, and I'll have a route set up, maps, route slips, whatever. It's easy, and like I told Kyle the other night, if I'm not on my bike I'm at the computer.

    That all sound great. I agree I like the route slips and the meeting points. I think I'll be pulling the caboose up lookout anyhoo.

    I'm going to be leaving work in like 10 minutes and headed to the dreadful gym. I'll get on later tonight.

    BM, do your magic and anyone else feel free to chime in

    This one is this Sunday. I'm up for scheduling another one for the 25th (Weather Permitting). I'm ALWAYS up for a ride on the weekends!

    Count me in for the 25th. That would give me enough time to find a sitter.
    This weekend is a no go due to on call work. Need cash for a new bike.

    I should be good for either, but may have to bow out of any hard climbing sections --- I've got a bundle of nerves in my lower back that feel like they're going to explode when I'm out of the saddle.

    Ok, check it out: http://www.routeslip.com/routes/21834 (Ok, it's not loading for me, either at the moment, but hopefully they'll get things fixed soon.)

    31.6 miles, 3,963 ft of climbing (I know, it seems like a lot, but that's the route that was suggested...)

    Comments? Lemme know... This is for the ride on Feb. 18th!

    Hey Dex, you working on bringing us Covered Bridge riders out there this season. Don't know if I'd actually be able to make it, but I do have a Niece living in Golden, so accomodations wouldn't be difficult.
    Might be doing some skiing this weekend. We're finally getting some serious snowfall here in S.W. PA. Not the 4 - 5 feet variety you get, more like 8 - 10 inches, but still fun to go play around in.

    Yeah, what Snowy said. Spin it out in your granny gear, you'll last longer that way! We're not racing (Despite what Kyle says!)

    OK, if you & Snowy say so .

    Thanks for planning that route. Is it for the 18th or 25th? It looks like the big climb (~mile 4-8.5) is about 4.5 miles and 1550' of gain --- that's a semi-formidable avg. grade of 6.5%. I'll be spinning.

    Oh yeah --- you're going to be a rocket ship when you get on bike that's around 20 lbs!

    This is for the 18th. We'll look at something else for the 25th!
