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.

Staunton - New N Elk Extension & Rusty Buckle (level 4) - 13 Miles - 1,644' gain

Where? Meet at the Staunton SP Upper Parking Lot; navigate using location and direction buttons on map in event description.

The Ride: This is a really nice ride that includes the new N Elk Extension and Rusty Buckle 769 trails (a whole new Staunton!), and you have the option of adding in Mason Creek and Bear Paw for an additional 2 miles and 550' of climbing (which I may do depending on how I feel after Rusty Buckle). We'll go up Staunton Ranch, up N Elk Extension to its end, back on N Elk Extension to Rusty Buckle 769, up/down Rusty Buckle, then take Borderline down to Staunton Ranch down to the parking lot (or the add-on option if you prefer).

When? We'll start riding promptly at the posted start time, so get there early enough to be ready to roll by then. (Really!)

How Hard? Level 4 (intermediate).

How Fast?: This is a no-drop ride (which might mean you'll be waiting on me!), and we will re-group at each intersection. The pace might be a tad slower than some of you FRMB'ers are used to.

What to Bring? Along with your good attitude, bring water, snacks, spare tube, tools, helmet, etc., and a bike in working condition. Also, please bring a beverage and a snack for post-ride calorie replenishment and great conversation in the parking lot with this fun group.
