ButterGold is turning six!! And we all know what that means; it’s ButterGold’s rubber chicken anniversary!!
On May 5th 2018 we’ll be doing it all again. Celebrating the majesty of rubber chickens…..er, Belgian classics with bikes, food and booze. If you’re reading this it’s because we want you to join us. ButterGOLD is a course civilisée ride (butter-speak for a gentlemen’s ride) and will rumble to the north and east of Boulder, hitting all the best back-roads and dirt-roads. Sadly there will be some pavement between the fun bits.
This year, after much experimentation and countless spreadsheets, the 80mile and 50 mile courses remain. The 50 mile ride is basically the 80mile route with a generous short cut. It depends on registration but we plan that the 80mile ride will have at least two departing groups, the 50mile route will have at least one and the whole thing is set up so roll into Butter HQ together-ish.
The object of the game is for each group to stay together. If someone flats or has a mechanical we don’t just leave them out there, that’s not how we roll at butter. We will assign four group leaders to help manage the mayhem.
