Let's get above treeline shall we?! We'll meet at the T-rex lot and consolidate vehicles before driving up to the base of Copper Mountain. Once on the mountain we'll begin our epic ascent to the summit, breathtaking views and beaver dams galore mark our path to the top of this historic section of the Colorado Trail. Once home to the famous 10th mountain division, this area offers amazing scenery and a variety of riding conditions. High alpine conditions require you come to this ride prepared, bring a waterproof jacket and extra food and water. The experience will be well worth it!

Colorado’s riding is about as good as it gets … good climbing, fast downhills, rocky terrain and plenty of great scenery. The Saturday rides are a great way to end your week or start the weekend. Most rides will be at least 2 hrs in length and will start at 10 am. Each Tuesday we will post the upcoming Saturday ride and its description.
If you’re looking for daily rides or want to organize one go to the discussion tab and the rider board file.
Local Saturday rides will meet at the trailhead. Rides where driving time is required we will try and car pool. All car pooling will require pitching in for gas.
If you RSVP and change your mind please let us know. The trips requiring car pooling are of particular importance.
