July 4th celebration in the mountains!!!

  • This location is shown only to members

Meetup members Julie and Knute have graciously offered their home in the mountains for this very special gathering.

Hosts: Julie and Knute

 Please join us at our mountain hideaway only 22 minutes west from downtown Boulder for a 4 th of July hike followed by a potluck dinner.  We have 20 acres to explore and lots of fun activities: bocce, trampoline, ping pong, pool table, a tipi, a hot tub and lots of good bouldering rocks to explore.

Knute and I will provide three of our Holiday favorite’s corn on the cob, cold watermelon and cold beer. Please bring a dish to pass (that serves at least 8), your favorite veggie item to grill if you like, other beverages of choice, plates and utensils, and blanket or chairs for picnicking.

We will lead a hike to the top of Twin Sisters that has terrific views of the Continental Divide and Boulder Valley starting at 3:00 p.m. (hike time aprox. 1 ½ hours –moderately strenuous).  Folks can bring mountain bikes too as there are lots of road and trail options to explore in the area.

Dinner will be approximately 5:00 – 5:30.

Lisa will send directions to those that RSVP as the date gets closer.

 

 For those not familiar with Magnolia Road you are in for a treat– it is the steepest paved road in Colorado!  Just take your time on the hairpin curves and enjoy the scenery!  Your car will make it – you don’t need a 4-wheel drive vehicle.  Just remember when you’re driving it that Knute rides his bike up all the time. Folks could car pool at the library lot or further up the Canyon in the lot where you turn left for Magnolia.

 

This will be a fantastic day in the mountains and with so much to play with(;

We will arrange carpools so when you RSVP please indicate if you can drive or need a ride.

I am really looking forward to this event, and thank our hosts for opening their home to our community!

    My family & I thoroughly enjoyed the 4th of July Boulder & Beyond Vegan Meetup at Knute & Julie's home in Nederland. The environment, the PERFECT hosts, the food & the amazing people combined to create the BEST 4th of July that we've experienced. Thanks to all that helped make it so wonderful (esp Lisa who provides us with so many awesome experiences).

    i'll write a more thorough email on Sunday but we all need to carpool bc the parking is so limited. if you are coming from out of town i suggest you look on this list and see who can give a ride and email them directly to be certain you can come. thanks ted and others that have said they can give rides. we have room for 20 cars and over 80 people so please try to fill your cars as much as feasible! this is going to be so much fun!!

    Hey Danielle and Laura - Thanks for asking about your dogs.
    Knute and I both love dogs but we are a little reluctant to encourage everyone to bring their dogs since it will be quite a big group and it could get quickly overwhelming. We hope folks will understand. (Plus we have a cat who is not particularly dog friendly). We look forward to hosting everyone. Thanks. J&K

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
