Looks like Sunday is going to be sunny and warmer than this past few days so lets take advantage of it and get out for a nice long ride linking a few areas together.

Arrive a few minutes before so you can sign the waiver, we will roll out at 10AM.

We will go into the Bear Creek park and do a loop (10-11) miles and then head up the road to the Lair of the Bear trail and ride to Pence Park taking a left out of the trail to go up the road to Mt Falcon and then come down the front side to the Highway back to Morrison and the parking lot.

Mileage will be about 30-35 (not sure as I have not done it without the loop I take on Green Mountain) The riding time will be about 3-4 hours. The pace will be consistent so be sure you have plenty of water, food and definitely bring layers of clothes because we will be in the canyon and it might be cooler.

If you don't want to do the whole ride you can certainly pull out after the Bear Creek Portion or take the road down from Pence Park back to Morrion instead of doing Mt Falcon.

I have posted this at Level 5 because the pace will be consistent a few stops but they will be quick. My back gets too stiff if I stop too long so I need to keep rolling. The pace will be about 10-12 miles per hour, granted slower up the hills and faster down. If we are climbing and you get to the top of the hill and don't want to wait, come back down towards me and pick me up, I will be ready to roll upon cresting the hill if you are waiting.

If you want to go to eat afterwards we can head into Morrison to a local establishment.

Make sure your bike is in a good working order. Wearing a helmet is required. Bring plenty of water, extra tube, rain jacket, sun block and bug spray. Few other highly recommended items to have in your bag on any mtb ride are: pump/CO2, multi-tool, chain-tool, power-link. http://www.meetup.com/Lakewood-Mountain-Biking/messages/boards/thread/7876647?thread=7876647

I do not allow guests on my rides as they have not read the appropriate forms. If you have someone that wants to join us have them sign up for the group. They will then learn about all the fun rides that are put on.
