Description: How about some road biking without the fossil fueled vehicles (or Teslas) for company? While the pavement remains closed, we, the Self-Propelled, can do an out-and-back on the S approach to Highwood Pass on Hwy. 40. The goal will be enjoyment of the ride & the scenery. Enjoyment can include personal challenge such as seeing how far you can go or trying to reach a certain average pace. All the enjoyment, whatever form it takes, needs to be limited to 2 hours, the total time we’ll take for riding. All participants will be expected to be back at the starting point 2 hours after they leave because we carpool to Hard Knox Brewery in Black Diamond for refreshment after our ride.
Notice of Cancellation: The trip leader(s) will contact registered participants if the trip is cancelled or postponed. Registrants are asked to change their RSVP if they have a change of plan.
