Denver Group Rides??
 
So I know some of us are members of Team Evergreen, but I was wondering if any of you would want to form a bikeforum group rides???

I need to train hard for the Triple By-Pass that I'm going to be doing this summer and I thought this would be a great idea.

So tell me your thoughts and maybe we can get something going??:)

RMCC does rides that are specifically designed to ramp up to TBP, but yes I'm all over BF group rides!

Now how do we get rid of all this snow?

Well I rather ride with you guys!!! :) Plus I would like to get something going here. It seems there are quite of few of us here that we could form a pretty good group.

As for the SNOW. Think real hard and maybe that will melt it off. :D

So I'm just thinking off the top of my head but we could do weekend rides something like twice a month to start???

I'm hoping February will start to warm up here soon. ;)

superdex 01-22-07 10:25 AM

I'm in. Twice a month sounds great -- when we get more daylight, a once-a-week climbfest would be good too....

snowy 01-22-07 10:32 AM

Great and I'm in for a once a week climbfest too. I need that more then the hours on the bike. :)

The bonus is Daylight savings time starts on March 11th!!! YIPPIE :)

I'm going to make this thread a sticky for right now. :)

I'll start pondering the calendar and wait to hear from others :)

Where do I sign up. I'm in!

My bike is up and running, it's on the trainer now. I am really chompin at the bit to get going here. I would also like to do afternoon, evening rides up Lookout Mt. if you guys are up for that as well.

(thinks real hard to melt snow)

I'm in for the lookout mountain rides for sure!!! I live in Lakewood, riding distance from Lookout so thats a good climbing ride for sure. :)

I think starting mid-February I'll start posting weekend rides. Now what I need from you all is to help with the routes. :)

I will do my best on that but no promises. What your schedules like? I work 4am to noon so my evenings are free for the most part. (minus karate nights)

superdex 01-22-07 11:07 AM

well there's the green mtn/dino ridge/red rocks route we've done, that's a gooder. Last summer on the Livestrong training rides we always left outta Sloan's Lake, mostly heading to Golden and beyond. There's also going from Sloan's to Cherry Creek Res (or Chatfield) and back. That should give decent miles too. I also enjoyed the loop starting at Chatfield res, heading up Deer Creek then North Turkey Creek into Evergreen and down into Morrison, then back to Chatfield res via the c470 trail. That was 47mi or so, and some good climbing....

Well you won't be newb for long!! :)

I work 6:30 in the morning to 3:45 or so. Not sure how much longer that will be cause I'm looking for a new job. :)


S.dex, yep I've done most of those rides too. The only one I haven't is that ride to Evergreen you mentioned.
I was also think we could do some rides like Idaho Springs to Loveland Pass, Coppermountain over Fremont Pass, some rides like that. :)

Pwnt 01-22-07 11:22 AM

OMG just to hear you guys talk....I'm a dead man. Can't wait!

superdex 01-22-07 11:26 AM

just cause we ride uphill doesn't mean we do it fast :D you'll be fine....

snowy 01-22-07 11:36 AM

HA HA HA. yeah S.dex will tell you I'm not too fast coming up hill. You'll be fine and hey thats the whole point of riding in groups it makes you stronger!!!:D

You'll be fine I promise. :)

I'm in!

I'm a member of Team Evergreen, RMCC, & Club Hypoxia.

We have a Hypoxia century ride leaving from Broomfield going up near Greely this Sunday. If anyone is interested, let me know & I'll post the details.

I'm going to Glenwood Springs this weekend (taking the road bike) hopefully get some riding in. :)

Zin 01-23-07 09:00 AM

Sounds cool, snowy.

I'm hoping the next storm holds off until after we can get the "C" in. It will be a long slow day. I buddy of ours from Texas is going to be in town too. It'll be fun if the weather holds off.

Here's hoping...

bmclaughlin807 01-23-07 12:06 PM

Ooo... I'm in. That is, if y'all can stand to be seen with a *GASP* commuter! :eek:

snowy 01-23-07 04:45 PM

Commuters!!! :) Aww you ride and thats all that matters. :)

bmclaughlin807 01-23-07 04:55 PM

Approx. 4,700 miles last year. And I didn't start riding till June. :) Now all I have to do is find the money for my cross country ride, I think I'm ready. :) :)

snowy 01-23-07 05:00 PM

Thats great, can't say I did that many miles but this year I'm going to try hard for that goal. :)

We have a friend that did 15,000.00 miles last year. He has no car. :)

bmclaughlin807 01-23-07 09:39 PM

I have a truck. It hasn't moved under it's own power in over a year. Makes a good storage shed for my tools, though. :p

Zin 01-24-07 11:54 PM

So, when are we riding? I just visited Wheat Ridge Cyclery today and spent way to much money on CX tires for my Bianchi San Remo tourer and a new NightRider MiNewt Dual dual LED lighting system. Now, the new tires won't fit in my crummy old fenders, so guess I'll finally have to nice new fenders for that bike.

Once the road conditions dry up a bit, the 5200 is ready to roll too... :)


LETS RIDE!

snowy 01-25-07 08:51 AM

Do you guys want to try for the 10th of February??

bmclaughlin807 01-25-07 03:54 PM

I'll put it on my calendar. I'm good for anything above about -5 degrees. :)

superdex 01-25-07 04:00 PM

I'm a maybe. Have friends in town skiing that weekend. I can definitely do the 11th....
