Denver Group Ride 09'

Hopefully we are done with the snow filled weekends. So I say it time we get a group ride in!
So, what weekend works best forever one? Also be thinking of a good route we could be taking. Let's hear your thoughts.

I am interested, but wondering if you mean to ride in Denver, or the surrounding hills? As the weather gets better, I stick to the foothills and mountains. My weekend riding schedule is pretty aggressive to make up for a lot of missed riding and overeating this last month, so I try to ride 5 hours each day with a good amount of climbing.

I am game. The more climbing the merrier. However, if this is a social thing I will understand if you keep that minimal.
I believe I have the buena vista century the 16th of May and the Club Hypoxia downhill Century the 30th of may. That and this weekend is a no go being that I will have just returned from driving to vegas and back.

I'm game! No weekend is really good for me (ha, i'm a busy bee!) but whichever you pick I'll do my best to make it happen! Sooner is better than later, if I end up moving back to the frigid, flat midwest.

I will also HTFU if its hilly, I promise.

anyone regularly ride from DTC on workdays? I need to squeeze a few more rides into my training regime, and its always better if I have to be accountable. lol.

artifice, why would you do such a thing?

Golden might be a good choice since Lookout is a moderate climb with many variations to make it longer. That way, we could break into shorter and longer ride groups, if there is demand for each. There is always the beer garden at Golden City Brewery for post-ride socializing too.

I was thinking a weekend and we would go bases on the talent at the time. Start throwing out dates that you are available and we'll see what seems the most popular. Maybe we'll throw up a poll err something.

Ready? GO!

Between 5/18-6/30 is ideal for me. Can do either mountain or road...more of a mountain fan, but have less of a chance getting dropped on road. Or if you really want a laugh at my expense, BMX/DJ works for me too. So yeah...really whatever is fine.

how long of a lunch do you take? In an hour, I feel like I could barely get a ride in, and cleaned up to be back @ the cube.

However, I wouldn't be opposed to catching a ride on occasion!

so I'm back in town after Mother's Day, but my weekends are booked solid until June 28th (MS150 ride, and I have no idea how I'm going to train on the weekends). After June I'm wide open. Well until August, when I'm on baby-watch....

I book a two hour meeting every Wednesday, and it's mostly respected, such that I can get a lap around the Res and showered in a couple hours. You game?

I'm game! Don't know that I'll have that luxury every week, but I'll try to join in on a couple!

Would love to get in some group rides, my schedule is for the most part open. Lookout mountain with beer gardens at the end wins my vote. I live in the Capital Hill area so if anybody is in that area and wants to ride, let me know.

+1 I'd be game for that as well. I've got kid duty every other weekend but otherwise my schedule is fairly open.

Well, I will pretty much be riding either Golden or Deer Creek every weekend in May, as long as the weather isn't horrible. The forecast for this weekend is questionable.

I am traveling on Sunday the 10th and the next Saturday may require sleeping in after 4 cities in one week, but otherwise looks good for May.

Ok, sounds like we'll be riding Lookout. Next question: Starting point? Are we starting and finishing in Golden? Not much time to get the climbing legs going. IMO.
Next is pinning down a date. Seems like we're all over the board. Not sure of the best way to handle this one. Any suggestions?

Denver group ride

A group of Colorado roadies on Road Bike Review formed a similar group ride last month ... but the only way it actually came together was by the proposing party (that's you, Pwnt) picking a date/time/route and posting it ....

If we're doing lookout, I'd suggest starting in Morrison...
