Group Ride Details


Sept GBA Group Ride

September 21, 2024
9:00 am
Crown Hill Park, Wheatridge, CO

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 Crown Hill Park's main parking lot on the South side.
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 in addition to the milage.)
From Crown Hill Park, we'll head out to play on the dirt paths and trails in and around Applewood, North Table Mountain, Bunn Reservoir and Standley Lake. We will be using trails, as well as roads for this route. For the dirt/gravel portions, expect some wide crushed gravel, smooth single track, rutted double track,  but nothing too terribly chunky.

* All genders are welcome.
* The ride is NOT no-drop, rather, come prepared with the route loaded on your bike computer or phone. There won’t be specific pace groups, ride leaders or sweeps, but riders will be able to ride with similarly paced cyclists.

* While this is a group ride, you are 100% responsible for yourself. Please bring enough hydration and fuel for the ride as well as sunscreen or anything else you might require. Be prepared for varying conditions and weather like heat, cold, rain, snow, etc. Make sure your bike is in good working order and you have the supplies to fix a mechanical issue or flat. Helmets required. 32mm width (or wider) and tubeless tires strongly recommended.

* If people want a coffee stop, the suggested place is, Corvus Coffee, which is more-or-less on route at about mile 45.
* If riders prefer to wait till the end and are interested, we can go to Em's Ice Cream and/or Queen City Collective Coffee afterwards. (They are side by side)
