    3rd Annual Kenosha-Georgia Pass ride

    Let's make it official: the 3rd annual Kenosha ride will be Saturday, September 29th.

    Typically, we meet at the dirt lot across from the Morrison Conoco at 7:30am. We'll get the carpooling taken care of and hit the road by 8am to get on the trail by 9am. If people want to get an earlier start, it would be fine with me. Likewise, if you want to just meet at the trailhead, that works too.

    For those who haven't ridden this section of the CO trail before, plan for a ride of about 5-6 hours (except for you speed demons, you know who you are) and changing conditions. Last year was sunny and warm, the year before that, windy and rainy. This is a late season, high-country ride, so anything is possible, including snow. The full out-and-back is about 25 miles with a good bit of climbing, all pretty much over 10,000 ft. It's a great time, but be prepared. More info here: http://www.trailcentral.com/trail/tr...o.php?trail=76

    I think it's gonna be a fantastic ride this year. See ya in a month!

    I'm in and this time, I'm better acclimated since I have been here a few months. I'll also be training with longer rides and plan on going to Georgia Pass. Hopefully that Titus (titanium Racer-X or ML?) rider is in as well as all who did it last year. That was a good group.

    Thanks for setting this up again.

    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    What's the advantage of going to Breck over Georgia? I'm just curious and would do that as well.

    There and back in one day would be some monster mileage, 65+.
    I did the Kenosha-Breck-Kenosha as an over night a few weeks back, took the trail alway to Tiger Run RV, was over 35 miles, cut some distance by returning to Colorado trail via middle fork road, second day mileage was 28 miles.

    Given the planning and coordination that was evident in this ride last year, I am confident that working in a shuttle from Breck would not be an issue.

    I did not make it last year, was hoping to join the group this time, but it looks like I will in Fruita that weekend.

    Sweet- I looked it up. I'm in with a shuttle arrangement, of course. I would never make it back in one day

    I'm in either way.

    Shuttle's possible

    The standard ride we've done is Kenosha-Georgia and back, but there have been people who've gone on to Breck in the past. If people want to set up a shuttle, go for it. This isn't a ride where everybody has to stay together and follow the itinerary, it's fun and freeform. The group seems to split up into 3 parts according to fitness, which is fine. That way everybody can find a group to ride in. My only concern is that nobody gets left on the trail.

    This ride's more like "hey, we're riding this trail on this day, hope to see ya there." It's a chance to have some fun and meet some fellow riders that I may only know from the forums. The more fit and experienced riders can go on ahead, try alternate routes and, yes, even continue on to Breck if they wish. The slower riders (like me ) can hang back at our own pace and keep each other company, then return to the car to have a beer and watch the near misses on 285.

    How long is the Kenosha to Breck ride - mileage, total climb, etc? I'd love to do it also, if'n I'm strong enough...

    Can't do the 29th... will be in Kansas for Kara's reunion. If there is another ride forming for another weekend, I'm down!

    This ride is a project of the Front Range Mountain Bikers Yahoo group.

    I was planning on doing the Kenosha-Georgia, but going on to Breck is beginning to sound very interesting.

    I believe the millage from Kenosha > Breck is in the mid 30's. Very tempting. I'll have to see if I can get all my chores done so i can join ya'll.

    "how long does it take to drive from Kenosha to Breck?"
    The most direct route looks like 285 to Fairplay and then 9 north to Breck, about 42 miles. Not sure if Boreas pass would cut any time as it is a dirt road, don't know when it closes for the winter either.

    Here is a good write up on the entire route.
