SBT GRVL Training Ride

June 28, 2023
5:30 pm
REI, Denver

As 2023 ambassadors of STB GRVL, we are happy to organize and lead the Denver community in local training rides.

We predict that the weekday rides will be a smaller group of riders and therefore, we will have the flexibility to be more casual and "go with the flow" depending on weather and the group's desires. Regardless, we will always start with a solid plan, and most likely start the rides from the Denver area.

This week's Wednesday ride will meet up at Confluence Park, outside the Starbucks in REI
Be there at 5:15 pm to meet other riders.
Wheels down at 5:30 pm 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.)

Distance: 42.4 miles  
Elevation Gain: 933 ft.  
Gravel Ratio: 30% Gravel / 70% Paved

Route Description:
Playing on the dirt paths and trails in and around Cherry Creek State park.
Nearly all of the 10 miles getting to the State Park are paved bike path, but there are some small 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 rugged or chunky.
Since we originally planned this route, there has been flooding in the State Park, so we may have to alter the route.
