Experience a must-ride front-range trail while learning about the history of land protection on the 5,020 acre Heil Valley Ranch – conserved by Boulder County with the support of many partners including the event’s hosts, Colorado Open Lands and Great Outdoors Colorado.
There are many ride options depending on the persuasion of the group. At a minimum, we’ll do an out-and-back on the Picture Rock Trail (~10.5 miles total). This ride climbs roughly 1,000 feet over 5 miles starting out mild and progressively adding more steepness and technicality. The ride is best suited for individuals of intermediate ability. That said, this will be a no-drop ride and depending on the size of the group, at least one ride leader will ride last to make sure everyone makes it out…and back. And since this event is a part of Land Conservation Appreciation Week, we’ll be stopping periodically for photo-ops.
All riders MUST provide their own bike and wear a helmet. Riders should supply their own water and bring riding essentials such as spare tubes/patch kits (this trail gets rocky), pump, tire levers, allen wrenches/multi-tool. Ride at your own risk; ride leaders bear no responsibility for rider safety/injury.
The event is free and lunch/snacks will be provided.
