Dan's "American Freezers" (Not!) Early Road Ride"

Join Dan and Nancy Ford(?) Thursday READY TO RIDE AND ON YOUR BIKE AT 7:00 A.M. (!) at the Fruita & I-70 Colorado Welcome Center to do the CNM Classic Loop the right way ... clockwise.  We will ride through the Redlands to the east kiosk and regroup at the Devil's Kitchen Picnic Tables just uphill and to the right after going through the pay kiosk.  We hope to be at the picnic tables by about 8:00.  If those meeting us at the 8:00 picnic area get there early, consider backtracking our route on South Camp to join us enroute.  Bring a required headlight and taillight for the tunnel (and to avoid a stiff $75 per light federal fine) and $5 for entry pass or your annual pass, and try to ride single file especially if cars are nearby. Also bring a spare tube, pump and mini-tool and possibly foul weather gear on your bike. Also bring plenty of water and snacks. If you are not ready to ride at 7:00 (or 8:00 East Kiosk or 7:15 West Kiosk parking lot) 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.  NOTE: Ride name has been slightly modified from "Dan's American Fryers" to "Dan's American FREEZERS" in honor of Dave's epic knee knocking non-descent or the west side during our recent Tour of the Valley Century ride:)

    Since there are only 3 of us I might show up at your place just B4 7 AM so we do the whole ride together.

    Everyone please note the important route change for the Thursday ride. This ride is a test to see if we want to do complete CNM loop on an ongoing basis as a change of pace from the Tuesday ride and to help riders who might more easily participate with a route that can pick them up on the GJ side.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
