No Spam here, just thought I'd pass this along to the masses. Looks to be an interesting discussion on the CO trail from a 17 to a 52 yr old rider(s)
Event is free! I'll be down there to listen in and plan my future attack on said trail

Mountain Biking the Colorado Trail
As a Colorado Mountain Biker you have probably suffered climbing up Mt. Falcon, laughed while ripping down lift-serviced trails and maybe even pushed your limits at a front range race or two. But have you ridden The Colorado Trail? I donít mean a quick ride up Waterton Canyon to Lemís rest. I mean ALL THE WAY TO DURANGO!
The Colorado Trail offers a once in a lifetime mountain biking experience, with its high altitude riding, spectacular vistas and remote sections of trail offering riders a true wilderness experience. The Colorado Trail also provides a unique set of challenges to mountain bikers. This group of four riders (ranging in age from 17 to 52) will share their experience of riding The Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango over the course of two summers. These riders rode the first half of the Colorado Trail as a supported ride, and the second half of The Colorado Trail as a self-supported bikepacking trip. They will show slides of each segment of the trail, and discuss lightweight gear selection, training, food selection, and logistical challenges. They will also cover some of the unique challenges to cyclists, lessons learned on the trail, and what makes this journey so rewarding. This will be a fun and informative, interactive presentation. Bring your questions.
This event is a special presentation in support of The Colorado Trail Foundation, the volunteer stewardship organization that built and maintains the trail for all. The CTF will provide helpful materials and hold a DRAWING for a FREE GUIDEBOOK. For more information about The Colorado Trail Foundation, visit ColoradoTrail.org.
