1466 Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO
We'll start at Trinity Brewing (please park in the lot behind the west end of the building, rather than in front), go through Garden of the Gods, then head south to climb North Cheyenne Canyon. Then it's back down the Canyon, so folks can choose how far up the climb they want to go. We'll then head back toward the Garden and climb Ridge Road, just in case anyone hasn't had enough climbing. Then its back to Trinity.
There will be no sweep, and no formal regrouping (although I'm sure I'll be stopping to catch my breath at the top of the canyon). Be prepared to be self sufficient, with a bike in good working order, and the ability to fix your own flats. Know the route, bring a map, or be prepared to find your own way.
