This ride is an excursion into the animal named canyons south of the Golden area. We will meet at the Phillips 66 station in Morrison with KSU (Kick Stands UP) at 9:30 a.m. Our route will take us up and over LOOKout Mountain, where we pass along CLEAR Creek Canyon. We will merge onto I-70 West to the Evergreen area and follow the BEAR Creeks to a rest stop at Evergreen Lake. From this point we will venture into North Turkey and Turkey Creek canyons to our lunch stop in Aspen Park at DW's 285 Diner. After lunch, our route will take us to Conifer and onto Pleasant Park and High Grade Roads as we follow Deer Creek back east to our ride ending at Wadsworth and C-470.
This route will entail many curvy roads, slower speeds and beautiful scenery. This will be a good opportunity to get ready for high county riding as the season progresses. Total route miles equal about 75, with travel time, including lunch and rest break, of about 4 hours ( or-).
