    Ring the Peak......

    Hey, I really want to get a large group together in June to do the Ring the Peak trail around Pikes Peak, I think this needs to become a yearly ride, much like the Colorado Trail Race. So if your up for it post away and let's set some dates.....

    Did it last year with a group of one speeders. Good times for sure! Not a bad way to spend a day. Definitely looking forward to the land swap going through to get some more single track included in the route. Enjoy!

    So it'd take me about 2-1/2.

    did RTP last year. Be ready for tons of climbing -- most of it straight up. Like 1000ft in .5 mi in one section. HIKE A BIKE. I give the experience an 8/10, but rideability is like a 4/10. These trails on RTP are not all that fun to ride

    Well from reading the link above lubes posted and hearing about it from Thatguy and Loudpawlz. It sounds like it is more about the adventure than the ride But i guess you have to be into that sort of stuff to enjoy it.

    I looked at the route... doesn't appear to be worth my time.

    I would be willing to join in on that adventure. It would have to be a Saturday or Suday for me.

    I rode the Ring the Peak System 2 days ago and I don't think I will ever do it again. The last 1/3 of the 70ish miles was fun, (pipeline, 666, intemann trail). The rest was a suffer fest, with a fair amount of walking, and lame highway + dirt road riding. If I ever come back it will be to ride to last sections.

    I like to do an out an back from the Mt Ester Trail head to Pancake Rocks. Other than the HAB on Mt Ester its a really chill ride. Some of the singletrack connectors are nice little gems.

    the best section is the singletrack connector after the nasty hike up ester. and the connector after the powerlines down to the little pond. and the singletrack around the north catamount res.
