This is a good trail with lots of flow, fun, and a few technical sections mixed in on some of the trails. Just like most of the other front range trails this one starts out climbing and keeps on going until we reach the top of Evergreen Mtn. There are some breaks in the grade along the way that will allow recovery as you ride but then its back up. The way back to the car is mostly a fast downhill until we reach the golf course and then there are a few short climbs. We will determine the route based who shows up the night of the ride.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend this ride.

This one can be hard to find for those that have not been to the park before. Dedisse Park is 27 miles (43 km) west of Denver just west of Evergreen on Colorado State Highway 74. The park entrance is just after the merge from two lanes into one near the bottom of the hill on 74. If you get to a big sweeping corner with Evergreen lake in front of you, turn around because you missed the turn.
RULES: 1. Don't be late - we strictly enforce a 10 minute rule. We wait for No One (including myself) for more than 10 minutes. If you are late it's YOUR responsibility to catch up. We are all racing the sunset.
2. No whining. This is a VOLUNTARY ride. If we are too slow, too fast, it's too hot, too cold, or too windy...please stay home and eat Cheetos instead
3. Show up even if the weather looks bad, most times it looks way worse than it really is. If we can't ride due to weather we will end up heading to a local pub for Happy Hour so your efforts won't be wasted.
