Yesterday at lunch the 303cycling staff decided to dust off the singlespeeds, both mountain and cross, and give some Boulder County trails a try.
We parked in Superior for the start of the ride. The route was as follows:
Coalton Trail -> High Plains -> Greenbelt Plateau -> Community Ditch Trail -> Cowdrey Draw Trail -> 66th St (Right or Left and back to Superior)
This is a partial section of the Dirty Bismark
We rode south down McCaslin on the famous Morgul Bismark course to the Coalton trail which heads west for a nice view of the foothills before turning south. The Coalton is connected to the High Plains trail and is a nice stretch of singletrack. High Plains then drops down to the Greenbelt Trailhead at CO 128 and Highway 93.
We then headed North on Greenbelt Trail where the bike path like conditions allow you to take in the awesome views. Greenbelt connects to the Community Ditch Trail which has a dramatic overlook of Marshall Road and allows you to ride two abreast. We finished up the trail riding on the singletrack Cowdrey Draw Trail which comes to a "T" at the Koppenberg course at 66th St. Finally, we turned left and followed the Koppenberg course back into Superior. If work wasn't calling, we would have turned right and taken the Koppenberg course in reverse back to Superior for some more time on the dirt.
Whether it's a new trail or an old bike you haven't ridden or a combination of the two, it's great to just get out and ride!
