Anybody doing this? Want to do it? Want to donate to a good cause? I'll be DFL in the 69 mile loop if I finish but its not a race! They get the donations even if you fail to finish, or even start, . I haven't gone more than 50 miles in 20 years so, hmmm...... I'm "training" though. I can also ride bike slow.

My rider name is Jong Lafitte and the team is 'change 4 a nickel'

Join up, or, any support is appreciated.

B Strong Ride

Thanks!

That's a great loop. I've ridden up St Vrain once, and up and down Left Hand about half a dozen times but it's been about five or six years since my last journey up that way. Would be fun to do the direction as this event has it laid out, but unfortunately have to work that day. Good luck to you.

Thanks for the well wishes!!

LOL, yeah, I've ridden up it twice now the past couple of weeks. I just ordered up a mtb derailleur and 11-34T cassette. Woof i'm outta shape and the motor's not going to get that much better in 2 weeks.

It is a great ride in that direction, then you get a 25 mile downhill to Lyons.Longer but not as steep. obviously.
