Fwd: [summitbiking] Monday Bike Ride - August 31

Our Monday 8/31 scheduled ride will start at the parking lot on the west end of Main Street in Frisco. The parking lot is across the street from the Kayak store. Be ready to ride at 9:30 AM. The primary ride option will be to go around the Lake in a clockwise direction with the option on the return leg of passing the parking lot and continuing up Ten Mile  Canyon to Officer's Gulch or beyond. We will have lunch at my house, 102 A Riverside Place, just behind the  post office in Frisco - I will supply more detailed directions as to how to get to my house and where to park on the morning of the ride. There will be a grill. Bring something to eat and something to share. Our goal will be to back at my house by 12noon.

Monday (8/24) Ride - Georgetown (10am) to Loveland Ski Area (NO POTLUCK)

Monday’s ride leaves Georgetown at 10am and heads UP the bike path to Silver Plume, then UP the service road to Bakerville, then UP the bike path to Loveland Ski area.  With all that UP this means the ride back to Georgetown must be a screaming easy DOWNHILL.  This weekend I will drive the road up to Guanella Pass to see if is rideable.

  If you don’t want all that uphill then you can always head down to Idaho Springs and ride back.


Park along the road just past the visitors center in Georgetown (right off the freeway exit).  There are restrooms at the visitor center but they don’t want us parking in their lot.  I’m giving Bonnie the day off so there won’t be a grill.  I hear that there are picnic tables at the visitors center so bring a lunch if you have time to chat with your fellow bikers.  Another option is to enjoy one of the many restaurants in Georgetown if you feel like dropping some spendolas in this tourist town.


Winter is just around the corner, hope to see many of you there.


Call or email me if you have questions.

August 17 Ride

Hello Summit Bikers,

It is that time of year when Bob Gilson asks if we would like to do an ice cream picnic at his place.  I noticed last year that we made a serious dent in his ice cream supplies so I said yes before Bob could change his mind.

The ride August 17 is to Ute Pass. There will be two starting points; North Pond in Silverthorne starting at 8:30 am (A group of riders -- faster group perhaps with pace line) or from the bottom of Ute Pass road at 9:30 am (where Ute Pass intersects Route 9).  I plan to leave from Silverthorne, so if I am not at the bottom of Ute Pass at that start go without me.
The reward for the trip will be home made ice cream made by Bob and Jay Gilson. They will have a propane grill available for those who want to cook. As usual, bring something to eat and something to share with your friends as well as your drink. As a special treat, Bob intends to make some ice cream which will go as far as it goes, since he never knows how many people will be there.

Below are the details from Bob:

I plan to make some ice cream for the Ute Pass post-ride picnic at our house next Monday, 8/17. I expect to have plenty, but you just never know who the professional ice cream eaters are out there. The picnic will be on our deck and in the house, so please leave your bike shoes off at the porch, since we don't really have a lawn, and the view is prettier from the deck anyway. We have about 6-8 deck chairs and about the same inside. The deck rail is 2x8 flat, so it makes a good rest for a glass or dish.
From the Silverthorne Elementary School, which is on Hamilton Creek Road, drive/ride 1.3 miles up Hamilton Creek Road, then turn right onto Crescent Moon Trail. We're the 4th house on the left and the address is: 0137 Crescent Moon Trail. For those of you who know Roger and Sue Paluska, they live in the first house on the left of the same road.

We give extra points for those who ride up to the house, but if you're driving, we have room for some 8-10 cars to park just beyond our driveway in a cul-de-sac; plus you can park along one side of the road to allow others from the few houses beyond us to get past. About 6 can park in our driveway, but you'll have to back down to get out. If you're concerned, just carpool up from the elementary school. Or... this is where the extra points for riding up the hill come into play.

Bob' home phone is: 262-6123 if any questions or problems. His cell phone is: (405) 210-6222 if you're calling while we are on the ride.

Bike Ride August 10

Hello Summit Bikers,

Since we postponed the yearly meeting this week we will try again next Monday.  We will leave from the Dillon amphitheater parking lot at 9:30.  The scheduled ride will be through Frisco and up to Copper.  The goal is to be back to the amphitheater by 11:30 for the meeting.  There will be no grill nor picnic but riders are invited to bring lunch and a drink to have during the meeting.  We will have two guests: Jeff Westcott (from Mavick Sport) will  present an update on this year's CTS Ride and Brian Lorch (Director of the Summit County Open Space and Trails) will be present to discuss Rec Path issues and upcoming projects.  

All Summit Bikers are encouraged to sign up to either ride or volunteer for Circle the Summit (held August 16 this year).  The email for the coordinator of the volunteers is  Information about the ride can be found at
