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.
