Jeffco Bicycle Plan

Jefferson County cyclists are weighing in on what improvements they would like to see with their cycling infrastructure. No funding has been approved yet, but at least the conversation is started. Keep up the good fight. I’m especially liking the expansion of canyon roads. Also look forward to improvements along US 36 to Boulder. According to 303cycling.com, there will be a new bike lane adjacent to the highway.

Dirty Century Ride

This Sunday is the Dirty Century. The route starts and ends in Elizabeth, CO. Looks like the entry fee is pretty minimal. Check their website for more details. About a week ago, I really dropped the ball on another gravel century ride. It’s called the Gold Belt Century. Looks like a really fun route up in the mountains West of Colorado Springs, with a small group. It happened June 10th, so will have to put that on the calender for next year. Check out their site for other rides and info.

Saturday Ride – The House on the Hill

Followed Bear Creek from the Platte up to Evergreen, CO. Had intended to check out the ride up to Mt. Squaw, but went South rather than North, in Evergreen. Oh well, looked like I just missed the rodeo parade in town. Had legs for a little more climbing, so went up over Grapevine Rd and looped back to Morrison for a Dale’s Pale Ale.
