What we're about

If you like good dirt and good people, this is the group for you. We're about having fun while riding mountain bikes. We love to ride, and we love getting others out riding. That's why many of our rides are geared towards beginner and intermediate riders. Don't let that fool you though, we have rides for all skill levels. What this group brings to the table more than anything is a laid back vibe with a no drop attitude. This is very much a social riding group. If you're into tracking your cadence and getting in hot laps on the local trails, then you'll probably want to look elsewhere. In addition to our after work rides on nearby Front Range trails in Jefferson, Boulder, Clear Creek and Douglas Counties, we frequent trails a bit further out on the weekend such as; Buffalo Creek, Kenosha, Staunton State Park and others. We'll also take a few big multi-day trips per year to other riding hot spots in and out of state.

We offer multiple levels of rides to accommodate riders of all physical and technical ability levels. All of our rides will have a level designation to help you find a ride that's right for you. Please take a minute to read our rules and difficulty descriptions before signing up for a ride. These can be found in our discussion forums here (https://www.meetup.com/Front-Range-Mountain-Bikers/boards/thread/7876749/0/). Welcome to Front Range Mountain Bikers! I look forward to seeing you out on the trails. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Outerbike 2019 Moab Utah

Moab

Going on a trip to Moab in October to attend Outerbike. I've been before and it's a lot of fun. Thought I'd see who'd like to come along. This is not an official Front Range Mountain Biker Meetup. There is no set plan, we'll just meetup when and where we can. https://www.outerbike.com/ Description from their site, "Test ride all of the latest and greatest bikes and gear on the world-class trails of Sun Valley ID, Crested Butte, CO, Moab, UT, and Bentonville, AR. For three to four days, the world’s premier bike and gear manufacturers set up at the Outerbike expo site. You can browse the latest innovations, pick a bike you’d like to try and take it for a ride. Repeat as needed." You need to buy a ticket, $240 + Fees and Tax. A rep told me they won't sell out, so you can wait a month or so. I'm currently planning on heading out October 3rd, demoing bikes for 3 days, while taking advantage of the shuttles when I can. You can find lodging at hotels but I'd suggest finding something at the RV parks, especially if you don't mind tenting it. I grabbed a cabin. Hope to see you there.
