This Friday, July 12th, we will head into the mountains and ride along Clear Creek from Idaho Springs to Georgetown and return for a distance of about 25 miles. This ride is on the old paved highway with an elevation gain of about 1000 feet and some STEEP inclines. The fun part is the downhill on the way back.
This is a STRENUOUS ride that is uphill for a long distance.

There is a Terrapin ride, but it is a separate sign up and does not start in Idaho Springs
