The CO RBR ride never happened. Rather than trying to organize another ride, I'll just post up that BJII and I are planning on riding up Lefthand on July 5th. This isn't final yet but we're planning on doing this ride on this day. If anyone else would like to join us, I'll post more details as the day arrives.

I'm new to the forum and to biking... will you be riding to Ward or Jamestown? Will you ride up and down or make a loop somehow?

I finally rode up Lefthand Canyon to Jamestown and really loved the ride - it was beautiful!

Dunno, but probably Ward. Haven't been up there this year yet. Could do Super Jamestown to Peak to Peak also, but that's a pretty steep climb once you pass Jamestown.

The more climbing, the better for me. I need to get in shape for the Mt Evans HC.

You're probably gonna kill me in the climb. Since I didn't do Ride the Rockies this year I haven't been riding near as much as I did last year.

I'm in...I always have Mondays off. Let me know what time and I can meet you anywhere in Boulder or at 36 and lefthand.
I'll let BJII decide where to meet. I'd like to start before lunch but not too early. I have to drive up from Highlands Ranch.

Whattya think..10am or so? A logical start spot is the Bustop--plenty of parking.

I rode LHC this last Saturday. I'm old fat and slow. 2:06 from the Greenbriar to Peak to Peak at Ward.

I'm not sure what the weekend plans are. I need to check with my events coordiantor. I"m sure she has something planned. Usually I end up starting between 6 and 6:30, so if I go, look for a lounge Jersey on the way down when you are on the way up.

Most likely.

My wife and I went for a tandem ride up in Estes over Fathers day. We were heading from the North Entrance of RMNP back down to town doing about 35mph. The steering got loose.... front flat tire. That was a bit scary.

I'm preparing for the ride this week by eating and drinking too much and lounging in a boat. :D
