The Trail (link to map)
From Cherry Creek Mall southeast on the Cherry Creek bike path, around Cherry Creek State Park and back down the Cherry Creek bike path to the Cherry Creek Mall. This is 24 miles (RT) with 450 ft total gain. I expect it will take 2:30. There are four big climbs as we pass the golf course and go over the dam and then back over the dam and pass the golf course again.
The Cherry Cricket
Level - Intermediate
While, this is not the most difficult ride, it is not really for beginners or cruisers. We will keep a pace of between 12-15 mph on average with two short stops to regroup. I'm guessing it's a about a 1500 calorie burn.
Where to Meet
We will meet on the bike path on the south side Cherry Creek Mall just outside of Johnny Rockets. We will roll out at 10:00 and be back at the Cherry Cricket at 12:30.
Please be very sure that you really can make this event before claiming an RSVP. It is important to get an accurate head count. Take a moment to review the Trails and Ales 'No Show' and 'Last Minute Cancelation' policies. Also, I have my own policy against RSVP squatting.
I would love to get some help from someone who can ride sweep. Message me if you can help. Thanks.
