Denver CX

I'm aiming to get a weekly or possibly bi-weekly morning cx practice ride started in the central Denver area by the end of the summer. I just moved to Denver from Boulder and would like to have a similar thing going on here. I've been scouting routes in the City Park lately and it could be fun, fast, challenging and great for practice. Keep an eye out in August for things to get started.

Gateway ride

The Gateway ride has been rolling since Jan on Saturdays weather permitting. Smaller groups when its below 30 degrees. I seem to remember Sundays last year going too but not till March. Much smaller on Sunday but still good especially if Saturday was bad weather. For new riders: it rolls with a strong but reasonable pace line to Lyons and usually picks up a bit to 75th. Informal potty break after the turn then lights out all the way to Carter for a regroup. Then down the backside. Pretty intense on the way back surprisingly.

Denver Ride

We have a saturday ride that leaves every week from Rocky Mountain Lake Park (47th and Federal). The start time varies from 8AM to 10:30AM depending on the time of year, weather and consensus of the group. We have a group on facebook for called "Bike Colorado" which is an open group if anyone is interested in joining.
