Group of outdoors enthusiast who like to ride more difficult terrain more quickly. Riders are in shape and can handle 10-20+ mile rides and 1000-2000+ feet of vert in a ride.
We aren't trying to set speed records but we like to ride hard and have fun(and set Strava PRs on occasion). If you wonder if you are on the cutoff for this go ahead and join and see for yourself how good of shape you are in. Everyone starts somewhere.
Riders are aged 21+(adults only please). Age doesn't matter, sex doesn't matter; how good of shape you are in matters. Can you keep up? Do you want to push yourself? Are you ok with being outside your comfort zone?
We ride Green Mountain, North Table, Marshall Mesa, White Ranch, Elk Meadow, Hall Ranch, Buff Creek, Centennial Cone, GGCSP, etc. New adventures will be planned as well.
Not all riders have 9-5 jobs, some are divorced with children, some own businesses or have unique corporate schedules; so rides may be days, nights, weekends, holidays. This time of year night riding is excellent.
Most rides will be on Monday, Wednesday, Friday (after 6pm), Saturday, Sunday(early mornings).
Might include happy hour or pre/post ride festivities.
All participants must wear a helmet, you won't be able to ride with us without one. Please come prepared for tough climbs and fast descents. Please ensure you are hydrated and fueled. Please ensure your bike is operating safely. Gloves, glasses, water, toolkits, air, kneepads(?)...please come prepared!
If you join a night ride please have 700+ lumen headlights for your handlebars and your helmet. A simple low lumen headlamp will not suffice.
During rides this group may plan other fun events like hikes, 14ers, backpacking trips, ski adventures. They will be less of a focus but are still sought after by some of this groups participants.
