Beginner ride down the Platte River Trail, 100% paved bike path, hybrid friendly

  • Mar 29, 2013 · 5:45 PM

I'll be riding my mountain bike to keep the pace down. We'll ride South on the trail, go under C470, and head West on the C470 trail for a mile or two. Should be about 12-13 miles round trip.

I'm going to schedule a couple more easy rides, but in a few weeks I'll step up the speed and distance to the 20 mile, intermediate, 15-17mph ride of last season.

I park in the Southeast corner of the parking lot, adjacent to the trail.

    Good ride... Gus ( 7yrs old ) could only hold about 8mph so we couldn't really hang. We did however keep truckin and ended up with a 16.4 mile ride by the time we got home.

    Don and I really enjoyed the ride, meeting new roadies and enjoying the time outdoors!
    Hope to see you all next week and we'll make plans to stay and have a beer and food, if that's the plan!
    Hopefully, we can get you to come to the Springs for some hills and thrills in the future!
    Yes, Gus did a FANTASTIC job riding - 16 miles is a lot for those little legs!!! So cute and so great to bring him along!

    I'm driving from Westminster--no good way to get there in rush hour traffic. Am afraid will miss the group w/ long drive for nothing. Will try again next time.

    Since we are coming from the south end of the ride, Aspen Grove, what road/exit do we take to get to Pedal from the bike trail???

    March 28, 2013

    • David R

      Pedal is in a shopping center about 3 miles from Aspen Grove, located between Prince St and Bellview Ave. here's a short map for you: http://www.gmap-pedom...­

    Don and I are coming from the Springs. We are going to park at Aspen Grove and ride to the meetup spot, ride with you and then spin off when we are on the return trip, at Aspen Grove! If you decide to cancel, please post on Meetup. Thanks!

      Pedal is just a couple miles from my job, so even if the weather is marginal, I swing by the trail after work.

      March 28, 2013

  • Chris S.

    hey chris I will ride there and be happy to offer to help you with the group in any way you see fit if neded.

    March 28, 2013

    Chris, great to see you organizing these rides again. I have the day off Friday so I will probably ride earlier but it depends on when they get done painting my house. If my ride ends up by Pedal at the time you start I will join in for part of it.
