Elephant Rock - Hints

Any suggestions on what time we should try and arrive for the Elephant Rock Ride? A group from work is going and most of us are doing the 32 and 62 mile rides, one doing the century, iirc (my boss, she's a powerhouse). I've heard it gets pretty congested on the roads leading to the fairgounds.

It is terrible. Either arrive early or camp.
One of the members of my club parked in a school parking lot a few miles away and rode to the fairgrounds. Worked splendidly.

Great to know. Thanks! I don't think we're going to camp so I'm going to look for some places a mile or two out to park.

The Denver Post today said advance signups for Erock to date are 2 times last years.
... that they expect to hit or get close to their max of 7000 so expect crowds
