    Visiting Leadville Monday 9/30. Looking to ride sections of the 100 MTB race course

    Hi,

    This Monday 9/30 I will be in Leadville and able to ride from Noon till dark. I plan to race this August and want to see as much of the course as possible.

    Any locals out there able to join me? OR give me some advice on how to best use 5 or 6 hours of pre-riding?

    Thanks

    Nails~

    i'd say ride the St kevins and sugarloaf climb, descend powerline and then either continue for a bit or turn around immediately (time dependent). I did this a few times to try to duplicate the feeling on the return trip and while nothing can duplicate 8-10hrs of riding like riding for 8-10hrs, this was a reasonable approximation.

    At some point the route crosses private property and I don't recall where. after the pipeline aid it's mostly a pretty fun roller/gravel kinda ride but you can get that anywhere.

    ymmv

    Twin lakes to halfmoon creek should be beautiful right now with all the aspens, it's a segment of the Colorado trail easy to find
