We need to pick a date... once we have a date set, I'll ask around... I know a few people that might be interested...

Also... we should see about organizing the trip back... I'd rather not be stuck in Avon attempting to hitchhike back!

Yes. Pick a day and then we can go from there.

I nominate the 12th, 19th, or 26th of July.

Discuss.

I can't say what day will work for me yet, I've got to double check with a buddy about a race up in Crested Butte.

Really going to try to be there. July just happens to be a big month. Got in a 35 mile ride yesterday though. It was great

The 19th might work for me. Otherwise July's not looking too good for me.

Thanks for the sticky Snowy!

I think it makes good sense to pick a date about 30 days out. June, July and August can have very intimidating monsoon weather. At altitude that spells hypothermia. 30 days is usually enough time to predict a high pressure system with long range weather forecasting. I'm suggesting this because I would really like it if everyone had fun with the ride. We don't need a suffer fest.

Alternatively, I can understand that folks here need to have their schedules dialed in much sooner than that. So, as a compromise - how about we pick three dates. One date each for June, July and August. Just an idea. Any other ideas are most welcome.

Maybe Pwnt is going to rent a bus to haul us back. I'm still trying to figure out how we are going to handle the out route. Need a back.

I have a mini van. I suppose I could fit two bikes in the back and pick up a hitch rack for two or three more behind the van. Then I could tail pwnt to avon, drop the van off, and we could drive to evergreen.
hmmm.....

At least we have plenty of time to figure that one out.

We're going to pedal back to evergreen after we savor a few beers in Avon. I thought you knew that.

Hmmm
I wanted to do a 400K someday but we will need to add a few miles to make it 249.
I am not sure if a 400K in the mountains is what I had in mind but I am game.
With my new dinotte taillight y'all can stick me in back.
