Here is the map of the ride I hope we are able to complete for this ride. The distance is around 7 miles. I’d also like to evaluate this additional loop as an alternate for the fundraiser ride in September.
Looks like the weather will be decent and in the mid-70’s. Don’t forget your lunch for the meeting after the ride.
Date: Saturday May 6th
Time: 9:00 for Ride with Lunch meeting to follow about noonish.
Location: Continental Divide Radar Site.
Project: To prepare for September fundraiser ride.
Bring lunch fixings as we will have the monthly meeting during the lunch after the ride.
Directions to the trail head are as follows:
Follow I-40 to exit 47 at Continental Divide. Turn south from the exit and then turn right. You will pass a building with a blue roof (used to be a Stuckey’s) on the left. Go 0.2 miles and turn left onto FR 464. You will go over a cattle guard and onto a one lane paved road. Follow this road for 3.8 miles. At 3.3 miles you will go through a gate into USFS land. There are flat areas on the right that are good for camping.
There is a gas station and a shop at Continental Divide where you turn off I-40.
You’re welcome to stay and camp overnight and ride again on Sunday if you want.
