That's actually an angry ELK lookin' for ya' Scott. Don't confuse or degrade that ELK, or it'll be double angry.

Scott, your "Kremmling Day 2 alternate" is one of the the main rides, Trailridge Road. It should not be an alternate.

"Kremmling Day 2" was an original route I proposed early on however, having ridden it recently there is like 60 miles of fairly wide-open road that would be more fun with turns and scenery. Therefore, I have made the "Kremmling Day 1" loop to replace that. "Twenty Mile Coal Mine" is on the route. http://www.mining-technology.com/projects/twentymile/

So, The Trail Ridge Road out and back to Estes Park is planned as one main ride, and the loop from Kremmling to Steamboat Springs over to Hayden and then down to Toponas and back to Kremmling is the other main day ride.

The Kremmling "Eve Day 1 ride" is correct. Should be some opportunity to get some pictures of wildlife if we are fortunate. It's the short out and back ride I got some of the pictures from. I can pretty easily be done in an hour and a half after supper. We will have ridden this road from Toponas to Kremmling as part of the main day ride, so it will be somewhat familiar to the riders, just reverse direction on the "out" leg.

Hey, Brant! Watch me pull a Youtube out of my hat! (Just click it)


Bonz, Walden to Granby on Day 2 is not happening, it's just east to Granby, then up to Trail Ridge, Estes Park, and back? All-l-l-l-righty then!

I don't do well with descriptions so Google Maps is a fantastic tool to help me visualize routes and discuss/correct them ahead of time instead of on-the-fly at the ride.

That is correct, ride east to Granby, then to Grandlake and take Trailridge Road over to Estes Park. Not planning on the Walden loop.

I sent Jerry the ride routes a few days ago and again last night, he is getting them added to the rally site shortly. My initial email either didn't get through to him or the ride route attachments didn't arrive with the email.

Jerry is doing a great job with the site again, kudos Jerry!

Ride maps have been added as a link from the main web page (Proposed Routes) or you can go directly to the proposed rides page, take your pick! (New windows open when you click on links. Close them to return to the main page as there is no back button on these pages.)
