8:30 AM INT-H3-33-S-2300’ Elev Gain. Larkspur Loop Meet Bill Luttrell 719 235-3868 at Larkspur Community Park at 8:15AM, wheels down at 8:30AM. Take I 25 south to Larkspur exit and park will be about ½ mile on the left.   We will take Spruce Mtn Rd to Palmer Lake , then right onto S Perry Park Rd, Right onto Tomah Rd, right onto Bear Dance, left onto Independence Dr, right onto Quartz Mtn Dr, left onto Perry Park back to the parking lot.  This is a scenic route with lots of uphill and downhill.  We will take a bathroom and water break at Palmer Lake and regroup/stop as necessary.   Figure on moving at a good pace.

9:00 AM FUN-H2-28-SE-700’. Meet Ellen Fitzpatrick (720-209-2269) at Mamie Eisenhower Park Rec Center, 4300 East Dartmouth Ave., Denver (Colorado Blvd and Dartmouth) to ride the Highline Canal through Cherry Hills and south to Prince Street and into downtown Littleton where we’ll stop for ice cream (or hot chocolate depending upon weather). Then back to cars via bike path along the Platte to Big Dry Creek and neighborhood streets. The first 14 miles are hard pack small gravel and the last half all pavement, so a wider tire like a hybrid or gravel bike may be better than a road bike. Bring money for the stop or your own snacks, and stay for lunch/social after at the park.

9:30 AM FUN-H2-23-NW Meet Jeff Krinsky (720-373-9107) for THE HIDDEN GEMS OF ARVADA. We have all experienced the traditional Arvada classic trails of Ralston Creek, Clear Creek, and Van Bibber. Check out this new route instead that explores Lake Arbor, the Pomona Lakes, the Arvada Firefighters Park, the backside of baseball, and other forgotten areas and is guaranteed to be an adventure! Meet at the SE corner of HWY 36 and 104th at the back side of the now closed Black Bear Diner, formally Quaker State and Lube Restaurant (10392 Reed St., Westminster, CO) by a hidden entrance to a hidden trail where the adventure will begin (and end).
