A great ride on Saturday took us from Aurora to Castle Rock, with a delicious meal provided by Sean, Holly & McKinley and storms caught us on the return. We were very fortunate to seek refuge at Tagawa Gardens, where they let us hide from the hail, lighting and storms inside with our bikes. A huge thank you to them for their hospitality.

With just over 6 weeks until the 2019 Courage Classic I am excited to share our Top 10 Individual Fundraisers:

  1. Kathleen Lemieux $2,995

Glenwood Springs Roaring Forks Ride 6/23

A beautiful ride from Glenwood Springs towards Aspen and back.

This is an ‘out & back’ on the Rio Grande Trail from Glenwood towards Aspen. The entire ride is 82 miles (time allowing) and a gradual 2100 elevation gain, however we split into a fast group that may go all the way to Aspen and a slower group turning around at about mile 25 making it a 50 mile ride. It is a climb out and a descent back so riders of all levels can join and return along the trail at any point. We will watch the time to be sure we arrive back in Glenwood Springs by 4pm.

Climbing Option available – 5 mile climb, 1500 ft. elevation gain, with a steep descent back to the Rio Grande Trail in El Jebel.

*Arrival time – 9:00 am , Leave at 9:30 am Sharp*

RSVP to: The Roaring Forks
