Anyone want to come out for a big summer ride. I'm thinking big as in "would be good quasi training for Laramie" big.
Here's some thoughts -
(a - not too big)a 30-40 miler in Johnny Park/Lions Gulch (Also known as the CSB ride from the 1st Fat Tire fest in '01)
(b - medium big)a Nederland to Allenspark ride. Also 40ish miles, but way more technical with significantly more singletrack. That'd be an all dayer for sure. Start in Ned, hit Jeep roads up thru Caribou, then over to Sourdough, up Sourdough to Peacefull Valley, then N on more Jeep roads to Allenspark
(c - way too big)How about Winter Park to Allenspark. Same ride as (b) but we'd have to ride from Winter Park, up and over Rollins Pass and down Jenny Creek before we'd even get to Ned. Like (b)but with an extra 2500' of climbing and probably an extra 20 miles.
Would any of you guys be interested in any of these? I'm asking now because something like this, I've got to plan ahead. I was thinking option (b) myself, but I'm game for any kind of suffering.
