Details

This is a road bike trip on very quiet paved back roads. The terrain involves a lot of climbing and steep hills but has fantastic views of the Sangre de Cristos and Pikes Peak. We will bike to the tiny mountain town of Guffey and have lunch at Rita's Cafe. From there we will make a 700 foot climb of Gold Hill in 2 miles but will reap the rewards of an 18 mile, mostly downhill, descent to the cars. 

Notes

Participants must be in good biking shape for this ride. Approximate ride time in the saddle is 5-51/2 hours.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
