    Question End of summer/leaf peeping ride 10/1 *updated time and meeting point*

    It would be cool to see some old faces and even some new ones. It won't be a driving Ms Daisy pace but won't be a balls out ride or anything like that at least from my end, if you decide to take that chance and be a canyon Marquez, I will suggest you not to show up and go do your own thing, my days of hauling ass in the canyons are long over. Just want to have a good, mellow and fun ride, do some sight seeing, hang with some people, get some food and end the year on a good note. Everyone and anyone welcome, all types of bikes welcome, gear highly encouraged (it will be cold in the morning as well heading up the canyon) but you're all grown ups so that's on your best judgement whether to gear up or not granted I don't endorse not wearing proper gear. Ride your own ride as usual.

    UPDATE: So let's shoot for Sunday, 9 am at MoCo with KSU at 9:30 for right now, I will update when I come home tomorrow after running the route. Route will be Morrison to Squaw pass to Blackhawk to p2p to Nederland to Lyons for lunch at Oskar Blues. Meet up information for southies below:

    Should have said end of summer haha, yeah riding season never ends for some of us granted I don't ride as much as I'd like anymore but hard to go ride with all these idiots behind the wheel here, just takes most of my want to go ride out and go back to bed lol

    I am definitely interested but I will only be able to go if some tentative plans for Sunday fall through. Saturdays are always out due to work

    Re: End of summer/leaf peeping ride

    For those of you coming from the springs, what would be a good time to meet up? Thinking about hitting up squaw pass to Idaho springs and peak to peak and ending in Lyons, maybe even do the full loop back and go all the way to Deckers lol... it's going to be a nice day, might as well enjoy it lol. Thinking more on Sunday.

    Re: End of summer/leaf peeping ride

    I have to run up north tomorrow after work and will drive through Lyons, Nederland, P2P and such back home tomorrow to scope the route out and see how the roads are looking after this past week since it was so cold. Stay tuned

    Re: End of summer/leaf peeping ride

    Watching this thread; I would also be riding to MoCo from the Springs.
    …possibly an early meet up somewhere in the Springs for the ride to Morrison?

    Ride is on Sunday.

    I'm good with that. Let's do the Shell gas station, northwest corner of Woodmen and I25. We will be KSU from there at 8am sharp, so try and be there 0745 ish. The pace from Springs to MoCo will be courteous and with traffic, too much CSP presence to do stupid shit.

    I'll probably bail on Coal Creek. Not to be unsocial, working nights so can't play with the cool kids too late.

    We're not even really expecting you'll show up at all to be honest. In fact I think most of us hope you bail on the way to MoCo.






    Love you Nolan!
