Ride Category: Black, Drop Ride, No Sweep
Reminder - This is a "drop" ride with groups splitting up based on pace and abilities.

Brief Description - I haven't done the Fountain to Hanover loop in a long time so let's go this week. This is a flat and fast ride, especially if we get a north wind. We will ride it clockwise so you can fly on the Peyton Highway segment. Weather looks to be excellent. Leaving at 9:00 sharp so please be sure to be ready.

Pace - 16-20 mph (riders always split up into groups of similar pace)

Distance -40 miles

Elevation gain - 1,200' (crazy flat)

Difficulty - Moderate for the long ride

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.
