Team Evergreen Rides – Exceptionally Well Organized

Team Evergreen

I had the pleasure of joining Team Evergreen on one of their super well-organized road rides again today.   Although it was flurrying at the start, about 25 riders turned out for what promised (and resulted) to be 50-ish degree temperatures under clear skies.

I’m impressed by Team Evergreen’s exceptional organization.   To begin with, the entire 2011 ride calendar is published already – you can see it here:   Team Evergreen 2011 Road Rides.     (They also have a mountain bike ride schedule:   Team Evergreen 2011 Mountain Bike Schedule)

The C-470 Bikeway is in Great Shape!

Have you ridden the C-470 Bikeway since repairs were completed?

C-470 Bikeway

Carol and I rode the C-470 Bikeway as part of an early season loop ride today.   We were both thrilled that the recently completed repairs have made this a very smooth and enjoyable trail to ride.

Gone are the broken slabs and tar snakes which tended to make this ride a bit scary on some parts.    It’s now just what one would hope from a trail:   An easy, smooth ride that allows you to concentrate on enjoying the ride rather than the condition of the trail.

First Ride of the Season

Although breezy, the 50+ degree temps today were perfect for a little ride around part of the Lariat Loop this afternoon.   I wasn’t the only one who had this idea – I bet I saw over fifty riders up on Lookout Mountain today.   I swung by Buffalo Bills Grave, rode Colorow Road past the Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Boettcher Mansion, and stopped for a drink of water at the Buffalo Herd Overlook at Genessee Park.

It wasn’t a long ride – maybe 15 miles, with a few hills to wake up the legs.  I was in the mood after getting my bike tuned up at Wheat Ridge Cyclery this week.   Those guys do great work, and I love looking around their huge selection of gear and clothing.

How about you – have you gotten out to ride yet this season?    Where do you like to get your bike worked on?
