Reminder - This is a "drop" ride with groups splitting up based on pace and abilities.
Brief Description - This week, let's start in Palmer Lake and head north to Perry Park and loop around the golf course. This is always a nice ride and with the early start, we should be out of the way of the Renascence Festival traffic as they will be coming in on Perry Park Road at 9:00 on. It is going to be a hot one, but there are many ways to shorten the route based on how you are feeling. Plus, there is the small store in Larkspur where we can get something to drink.
We will be leaving the lot at 8:00 prompt.
Pace - 15-19 mph (riders always split up into groups of similar pace)
Distance -40 (entire route) with many options
Elevation gain - 3,000'
Difficulty - Moderate for the long ride

Sweep - NONE - This is “drop” ride.
