Rides for the March 8-9 weekend
We are heading into March and that means we start up with the "flex" start times! The ride start time will either be 9:45 or 10:45 depending on the weather forecast. The Saturday start time will be posted by Friday morning and the Sunday start time will be posted by Saturday morning.
- Saturday's ride starts from Littleton at 10:45 and climbs Deer Creek and optionally adds Parmalee Gulch.
- Sunday's ride starts from Boulder at 10:45 and heads north toward Lyons and optionally Berthoud. Note! This year we are starting the Boulder rides from the south lot at the East Boulder Community Center instead of the west lot that we have used in past years. Note 2! Don't forget to set your clocks forward on Saturday night, less you be an hour late for the ride.
Brevet Registration... and Triple Crown too
The RMCC runs a lot of rides over the course of the season. All of these rides need people to start them. Starting a ride is not difficult--it only becomes a problem when two or three people have to start all or most of them!. Please take a look ride schedule for rides you would be interested in starting, and contact me to get more details or to sign up. Thanks in advance!

The 2014 Spring Contrail will run from April 19th through the 26th. This annual ride takes in the varied terrain and scenery of southeast Arizona. This year's route starts and ends in Show Low and loops through Globe, Safford (+Mt Graham), Morenci, and Alpine. This is a great tour (many people have done it multiple times) that usually fills up fast. For more information or to register, contact Charlie Henderson.
Summer Contrail -- 6/14 through 6/21
Come join us on a new and exciting route beginning and ending in Frisco, Colorado. Our route will go south into Gunnison and Crested Butte with notable climbs up Cottonwood, Kebler, McClure, Independence, Tennessee, and Vail passes. Not often done is the northern route of the Black Canyon and then the southern route the following day. This is a great training ride done in the traditional RMCC style. There will be comraderie, great food and wine, lots of fun times to remember. RMCC members will need to have committed to the ride by 2/1/14. Then the roster will then be open to other groups. Interested? Contact Brent Myers.
The next business meeting for the club will be held on Monday, April 7th at 6:30PM. We meet at the Clement Community Center at 1580 Yarrow Street in Lakewood.
