Meet: 8:00 a.m., Greenland Open Space (I-25, Exit 167)
Wheels down: 8:30 a.m.
Finish: Approx 2:00 p.m.
This 50-mile ride will start at Greenland Open Space and travel south along the BNSF Railroad tracks for five miles and connect with the Santa Fe Trail in Palmer Lake. The gravel-surfaced regional trail generally follows a straight and level course the first 6.5 miles beginning at Palmer Lake. An easement agreement by the U.S. Air Force Academy provides a crucial 6.9 mile stretch of this trail.
We’ll be turning around at University Village CO, where plenty of food and drink options can be had here including Starbucks, Panera Bread, Toyko Joe’s to name a few. See the entire list here.
From there, we’ll re-trace our travels back to Greenland Open Space.
