El Rancho – Genesee Bikeway Opening Party!
Sat, October 15, 2016, 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM MDT
Join us as we celebrate the long awaited opening of the Genesee/El Rancho Bikeway! With the completion of this 2.5 mile link, road cyclists will now be able to ride the 171 miles from Golden to Glenwood Springs using only hard trails or minor roads and avoiding Interstate 70 completely.
10:00am: No-drop ride, led by the fine folks at Team Evergreen, will depart El Rancho Brewery
12 noon: Opening speeches and inner tube cutting at Genesee Mountain Road (I-70 junction 254)
12:30pm – 1:00pm: Commemorative photo op and community ride to El Rancho
1:00pm: Celebratory Party at El Rancho Brewery with food, drinks and a cash bar
This bikeway is much needed and has been a longtime in the making. Do join us for the celebration to show our thanks to the Colorado Department of Transportation, Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County for making an idea become a reality.
Feel free to join for all or part of the day. The pre-ride will be a short, no drop ride through the hills around Genesee. MAP
Important - Due to very limited parking at the Genesee end of the trail, please park motorized vehicles at the El Rancho Brewery and ride to Genesee for the opening.
