Yes, but here in Colorado we celebrate Memorial Day a week later than Alberta celebrates Victoria Day.
So my long weekend plans (May 23rd-25th) are to lead a ride I call "gravel roads of Weld County". Weld County is the neighboring county and is a little larger than Delaware + Rhode Island + DC combined. There are ~4000 miles on the county road network, approximately 80% of them unpaved. It is a beautiful area with flowers, nesting birds and peaceful quiet of wide open plains. We'll be cycling out to a B&B where we stay for two nights, so the in-between day we can explore further in the area. Not a particularly tough tour but an area I enjoy riding.
