Cheyenne Mtn. State Park - Casual Ride

This will be an casual more mellow ride than the Saturday ride – I still need to shed some pounds and much slower than most of these guys!

We will ride from the main parking lot and ride the Sundance then Blackmer trails.

Sundance Loop:
Technical: Easy
Aerobic: Easy+
Distance: 5.5 miles
Elevation: 550 ft
Time: About an hour

Blackmer Loop:
Technical: Moderate - some rocky sections
Aerobic: Moderate
Distance: 5 miles
Elevation: 750 ft
Time: About an hour

Again, I will be taking it easy – I am not out to kill myself – just have some fun! You can ride one or both loops.

Here is a map for directions to the trailhead: http://binged.it/wIN7vb

There is a $7 charge per car to enter the park.

    Having back spasms am going to have to cancel. Was really looking forward to this. Story late notice thought would be better by now.

    Must have been a rough Sunday for everyone. I apologize for missing the ride as well, had some family medical issues. Nothing like spending the day in the waiting room.

    This turned out to be an awesome ride. When we got there we had about twenty minutes of rain/drizzle, so we hung in the car until it passed - but once it broke it was awesome sun the rest of the day.

    There was no one on the mountain, we just played, explored, and rode!

    I tried to do "plus one" on the RSVP but didn't work.
    My son would like to attend.
