Join Dan and Nancy Ford every Tues and Thurs READY TO RIDE AND ON YOUR BIKE AT 6:30 A.M. (!) at the Fruita & I-70 Colorado Welcome Center and ride at least to the CNM Visitor's Center or as far as The Half Tunnel, Black Ridge, High Point, or Cold Shivers and then return by the same route. By going up the Fruita side of the Monument we avoid the Glade Park commuter traffic as well as enjoy a gentler climbing and descending grade. Bring a required headlight and taillight for the tunnel (and to avoid a stiff federal fine) and $5 for entry pass or your annual pass, and try to ride single file especially if cars are nearby. Please bring a spare tube, pump and mini-tool on your bike. Also bring plenty of water and snacks. If you are running late or wish to cut off 200' and 2 miles, we will pass by the West Kiosk parking area at about 6:45. If you are not ready to ride at 6:30 (or 6:45 West Kiosk) we will assume that you are faster than us and want to give us a head start:) We hope to continue this ride on a regular basis every Tue. and Thur.
