Group Ride Details


June GBA Group Ride

June 8, 2024
9:00 am
Confluence Park/REI, Denver

We know many of you are training for events and/or just want to meet and ride with others.
We are excited to organize and lead the Denver community in local training/social rides.
Meet up times and locations vary- see details below.
If riders are interested, we can go for coffee, beer or food afterwards.


We will meet up at Confluence Park, outside the REI Starbucks
Be there at 8:45 am to meet other riders.
Wheels down at 9:00 am sharp. (We will wait no more than 5 min. If you find yourself running late please text Laura at 303-726-4774 and meet us further long the route.)

This is a beginner/intermediate ride which may not be suitable to a new-to-gravel riders. (We say this mostly because of the fact that we won’t have specific pace leaders or sweeps.)
From REI, we'll head out to play on the dirt paths and trails in and around Cherry Creek State park. Nearly all of the 12 miles getting out and back to the State Park are paved bike path, but there are a few opportunities to jump on and off some unpaved trails. For the dirt/gravel portions, expect some smooth single track, some wide crushed gravel and nothing too rugged or chunky.
