Location

This Monday April 8th, we will meet at Memorial Park & Johnny Roberts Disk Golf Golf Course ,8001 W 59th Ave in Arvada.  The park is located at the intersection of W 59th Ave and Allison St (the first street west of Old Wadsworth Blvd).  In the parking lot on the north side of W 59th Ave, please do not park in the spaces reserved for city vehicles marked with a "CV" on the pavement.

The ride is a 17.4-mile loop starting westbound on the Ralston Creek Trail and returning from West Woods Ranch using some roads (4.3 miles) but mostly paved bike paths including the Van Bibbler Creek Trail.  There is a total elevation gain of 509 feet, so the ride is not flat.  Most of the elavation gain is a gentle climb up the Ralston Creek Trail, but there are two short, steep sections, the largest of which climbs 50'.  Please do not be intimidated by the climbs.  Becuase this is the first ride of the season, we will ride at a very slow and sociable pace.
