September 28 Ride

Hello Summit Bikers,


It is that time again when our biking season draws to a close.  For what will probably be our last ride we are doing something a little different.  We will meet in Silverthorne between Chipolte and Old Navy, near the bike path away from the stores, this Monday September 28.  Everyone should be ready to ride by 10 am   Chipolte is located on the north side of route 9 from I 70.  Take the right next to Wendys and the first left into the shopping center. 


There are several options for rides starting at this location.  Option 1, is to ride up the dam path and on to Keystone and Montezuma. Option 2 is around the lake and return option 3 (which I will be leading) is one that winds through Silverthorne, Willowbrook and Three Peaks returning to the starting point.  After the ride we plan to enjoy lunch at Chipolte.  Since Chipolte is one of the largest donors to the Swan Mountain Rec path this year we felt it would be nice to hold the end of the season party there. 


Bike shirts will be available for pick up during lunch.


Hope to see everyone there!

Monday September 21st Ride

This Monday, 9/21 (weather permitting) we will go back to our usual Dillon start and head to Montezuma with shorter rides around the Lake or to Frisco.

The weather forecast for Monday is a high of 46 with possible rain/snow showers, so be sure to check our blog or your e-mail Monday morning to see if this ride gets canceled.

Bonnie will bring the BBQ stuff, so you can bring something to grill and a dish to pass.

We'll let it warm up a bit, so be ready to ride at 10.00am. Lunch will be closer to noon.

The following week, 9/28, will be the last "official" ride of the season.

September 14 Ride

Hello Summit Bikers,


This Monday we are going back to visit Green Mountain Reservoir.  Meet at 10 am ready to ride.  For those that do not know this is about 10 miles North of Silverthorne on route 9.  Meet at the intersection of route 9 and Heeney Road.  Afterwards the picnic will be held at 1512 Legend Lake Circle (come to the back yard).  Please park on the same side of the street as the house, to comply with the parking permit, otherwise you risk a $40 ticket.  Please plan to bring something to share, cook (we will have a grill) and drink as well as lawn chairs.  This will give people a chance to talk to Margaret and see how the recovery is progressing.


Directions to Legend Lake Circle from Green Mountain Reservoir:  Drive south on route 9 past Three Peaks Golf Course.  Drive past the Golden Eagle / Bald Eagle Intersection and turn left at the next turn onto Blue River Run Circle.  Take the first left and go over a small bridge.  This puts you on Legend Lake Circle.  Take the first right and go around the circle to 1512 Legend Lake Circle, parking on the same side as the house.  If all else fails our number is 970 513-0610.


We hope to get in a few more rides but as everyone knows things can end fast this time of year.   Hope to see you there.

To all,


Brad at County Open Space and Trails informs me that the section of bike path from Officer's Gulch to the top parking lot (east of the Cooper Conoco) will be closed starting a week from tomorrow - Monday, Sept. 14th - for re-paving.


Once closed, bikers will need exit and enter at Officer's Gulch and ride I-70 to and from Copper.
