The second loop will be at Palmer Lake which is where you can make a decision of either going north to Larkspur (42 miles) or heading back through Monument to the start ( 28 miles). Weather is looking good so lets gets some miles in!

Going to be yet another enjoyable ride, hope you can join in.

Things to Bring - Each rider should be self-sufficient, which means carrying water, food, and a tire repair kit. Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable, so make sure you dress for the day’s weather. Everyone needs to be wearing a bike helmet to join in so don't forget yours.

Sweep - NONE - This is “drop” ride.
