We offer points during the standard route where cyclists can cut the ride short or push for extra miles. If you plan to stray from the route, please voice your plans with the ride leader ahead of time so everyone is in the loop and they can offer suggestions on the best place to peel off based on your goals for the morning.
Starting at Lost Coffee, the route is a no-drop, 40-mile loop with mixed gradient terrain, bike-friendly shoulders, and light traffic areas. The ride will stop at Monk & Mongoose for a mid-ride refill, light snack, and socializing.

Destination rides are self-supported rides that leave from a location outside of Castle Rock. These rides vary from a stroll down the Cherry Creek Trail, shredding dirt rides over single track, or hunting down epic climbs in the front range. We have posted these well in advance as events on our Strava Club page so that you can RSVP and view the route ahead of time.
NOTE: All riders are required to sign a waiver for insurance purposes. All routes ride along open, public roads, so riders must be comfortable riding with traffic and in a large group. If you have not participated in a group ride before, that’s okay! Reach out to a ride leader before the ride starts and let them know. They will be happy to give you a quick walk through to help make your experience fun and safe. Be prepared to handle flats and any mechanicals. Members are always willing to lend a helpful hand if something arises during a ride. Be familiar with the rules of the road.
