4 starters and 4 finishers rode the Vail Pass Volley 200k. Once again, we changed the route from the VGV (Vail - Glenwood Springs - Vail) because of concerns of closure and damage from the summer's mudslides.

After a chilly start, riders enjoyed peak fall foliage under brilliant sun. John Mangin reports, "We had a spectacular day. Temps were cool to start, but warmed up nicely. had a slight headwind on the way to Gypsum, and enjoyed a tailwind for the rest of the day. The fall colors were in full bloom, with the Vail valley being particularly spectacular."

Thanks to John Mangin for leading!

Toastiest September Poudre Canyon Brevets Ever?

6 starters and 6 finishers rode the Poudre Canyon 300k and 600k. Beautiful days, with some nice pre-fall colors in the canyon. But a big temperature range, from about 43º to 90º, making for a challenging experience!

Nate Hartokolis, for one, welcomed this chance to complete his Super Randonneur series for the year. This was a big reason why these events were scheduled in the first place!

Thanks to Michael Turek for leading!

ACP Centenary Medal
First Centenary Stove Prairie Ever! And Hottest September SP Ever! And Biggest Turnout!

24 starters and 23 finishers rode the Stove Prairie 200k. So that makes this, in addition to being the toastest September SP, by far the largest turnout, thanks perhaps in part to celebrating the Audax Club Parisien's first 200km brevet, 100 years ago on this date! This established randonneuring allure libre (riding at your own pace, with others or alone), which the ACP espoused. Finishers for this event were able to order a replica of their original brevet medal.

How hot was it? Jim Howell reported, "Hoo-wee this was a toasty one... I was definitely suffering on the climb up Stove Prairie and on the return leg from Sandy's because of the heat. Seemed no amount of fluids or food helped increase my pace- hot is hot I guess."

Thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

First August 1000k!

2 starters and 2 finishers rode the Lefthand Canyon - Pawnee Grasslands - Devil's Gulch 1000k. Sarah Stolz from Seattle and JLE benefited from good weather - temps in the 80's the first day, and into the toastier low 90's the second and third, dry except for two showers around Windsor, and fair to good air quality - particularly appreciated!

We were able to add this ACP 1000k mid-summer because of the ACP's flexible scheduling policy because of the special circumstances of 2021.

First day was our traditional Lefthand Canyon 400k loop, cool but with brilliant weather. Second day was a foray north of Kersey towards the Pawnee Grasslands. There were some new miles for both riders! Final day was Big Thompson Canyon under sunny, blue skies (and a headwind), and cinnamon rolls at the Masonville General Store for those who got there early enough. All in all, a fine, congenial way to ride 1000 km.

Sarah had completed the Colorado High Country 1200 just six weeks before, and we were glad to see her again. This 1000k completes her ACP Randonneur 5000 award. She's now two rides away from an R-10000. For JLE, this completes the R-10000.

Smokiest Peak-to-Peak (or Any Brevet) Ever!

10 starters and 10 finishers rode the Peak-to-Peak 300k.

This was an heroic feat, given the smoky air quality. Mateo Ramos said he had to throttle back to pace himself ... and then got stung by a bee! (Unrelated to air quality.)

This is a return to our classic route, all the way to Estes Park and down through Glen Haven, not used since the 2013 floods. Now, reconstructed roads and smooth pavement greet our riders ... and cinnamon rolls!

Big welcome to Chris Michels who came all the way from Houston to join us on this challenging 300k.

And thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

Luckiest Colorado High Country Ever?

48 starters and 37 finishers rode the Colorado High Country 1200k, including five pre-riders. The finishing rate was 75%, higher than the previous edition in 2016 with its wildfires,winds, and blowing ash. So, yes, we were lucky. Also that the next week flood and mudslides closed Poudre Canyon.

A great group of riders from all over, though fewer foreigners because of travel restrictions. And after we had to cancel CHC'20 because of COVID, a marvelous comeback!

Riders liked three overnights in Walden, and the event support. Big thanks to volunteers Tim "Foon" Feldman, Paul Foley, Jim Howell, Kerin Huber, Beth Long, Brent Myers, Vernon Smith, Brett Sterling, and rider spouse Kyrsten Bell!

You can find lots of info on the CHC Main Page, and photos and stories on the CHC Blog.

After Mike Moerk reported he couldn't lead because of an injury, our friend Kerin Huber from Pasadena, CA graciously agreed to lead this challenging high-season 200k, and she turned out to be the only rider! Kerin points out that the lowest point on this ride is about the same as the highest point on the Angeles Crest Highway, one of her favorite climbs near home.

Kerin went on to volunteer for 4½ days on the Colorado High Country. Now that's an endurance experience! Thanks, Kerin.

1 First 400k!
First St. Vrain Canyon - Glen Haven Since Floods!

6 starters and 6 finishers rode the St. Vrain Canyon 400k and 600k brevets. We rode the St. Vrain Canyon - Devil's Gulch - Glen Haven route for the first time since the 2013 flood. Since then, the Glen Haven Road has been reengineered and reconstructed, and a years-long project to resurface and widen Hwy. 7 from Hwy. 72 to Lily Lake finally completed. (Sections of Hwy. 7 had been narrow and in bad shape for years, then further damaged by the flood and post-flood traffic.)

Congrats to Ben Sigmond on his first 400k! And to Jennifer Moore, completing an SR series that began in her erstwhile home of Arizona.

John Mangin reports: "The ride went well overall. We had pleasant conditions most of the day with some cloudiness to keep the heat at bay. A tactfully planned stop for lunch in La Porte kept us from getting caught in the afternoon storms. We enjoyed a tailwind from Rawhide to Wellington, but then dealt with a headwind from Wellington to the finish. All in all it was a great ride!"

Thanks to John Mangin for leading!

"The weather for the first 100 miles was picture perfect - all the way to Deckers. Then it was HOT all the way to Pine Junction with three big low altitude (6,000-8,000 ft) climbs, and continued hot back through Deckers and halfway back to Woodland Park. No matter that I was alone - I certainly had a good time. It's a great course."

Thanks to Vernon Smith for organizing this iconic brevet!

Most Brilliant Lefthand Canyon Ever?

10 starters and 10 finishers rode the Lefthand Canyon 400k and 600k brevets. Paul Foley reports:

"The day started smoothly with a gorgeous sunrise as we headed to Platteville. A group of six left Platteville together and would spend the rest of the day together, nursing each other thru our individual low points. Climbing Nelson Road, we had fun cheering on triathletes speeding down the road. Lefthand Canyon was very lush and sunny, and gave us the opportunity to see many other riders climbing also. Several that we visited with were aware of brevets, and expressed feigned interest. The snow was still deep on the peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park as we rolled across the Peak to Peak highway.

"We decided to take a break in Lyons at Oscar Blues to cool down and rehydrate. Just as the temperatures were getting into the nineties near Masonville, a cloud cover rolled in to provide much appreciated relief. Turning back south after a sandwich in Wellington, we were blessed by a tailwind that took us all the way to Millikan. Although we were treated by a stunning lightening display south and west of us as we left Milliken, the front from that storm produced headwinds that made the final leg home more work than we were looking for after getting over 200 miles in our legs. However, the storm did skirt around us, so we avoided any rain as we finally returned to Louisville."

Thanks to Paul Foley for leading!

7 starters and 7 finishers rode the second edition of the North Park - Laramie - Cheyenne 600k. Brilliant sun to start, But then rain heading into Laramie turned Laramie into the preferred spot for an overnight break. "Most time I've ever slept on a 600k!" The main story, though, was the wind, with stiff headwinds from Wood's Landing (heading to Laramie) all the way back to the finish. For Mateo and Jonathan, who rode straight through, the timing of winds and rain were just different.

A big thanks to John Mangin for leading, and for designing the route!

Chilliest Stove Prairie Yet?

16 starters and 16 finishers rode the Stove Prairie 200k. It may not have been the chilliest ever, but the chill, fog, and haze persisted way longer than riders expected, eventually giving way to a milder, sunnier afternoon. Still, preferable to the originally scheduled date, April 17, where we were concerned about icy roads and snow runoff.

Welcome to yet more first-time riders, and some returning for the first event of the season! RMCC paid the entry fees for this brevet to encourage riders to come out, so thanks for that! For Nate Hartokolis, it was his first randonnée since PBP'19. Welcome back!

Thanks to Vernon Smith for leading!

14 starters and 14 finishers rode the On-A-Lark 200k. Most brevet first timers riding On-A-Lark ever - impressive! A big welcome to the new randos you see flagged in our results. We hope we will see you come back for more!

Mild temps and mild breezes made for an enjoyable day, with a little excitement. The route had been changed at the end to climb Wolfensburger Road and avoid the I-25 South Gap construction. But a vehicle accident closed Wolfensburger for a time, and affected riders got a Highway Patrol escort down the frontage road instead.

A big thanks to Vernon Smith for leading this route he designed!

Thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

Most Gustatory Kersey Kick Ever!

19 starters and 19 finishers rode the Kersey Kick 200k. A good turnout, and three new riders (welcome!). We also welcomed back Justin Costillo from the DC area, who had joined us for the Vail Pass Volley last fall, and is now on a mission to ride each of his R-12 rides in a different state.

Paul Foley reports: "We had a glorious day. The warm weather and sun was a pleasant change after our prior weekends blizzard. It always amazes me how quickly the weather and conditions can change in Colorado. We had a group of seven heading out to Kersey (including Kim), picked up Sam on the way, and were welcomed with free meat! The local ranchers were celebrating “Meat IN” day in opposition to our Governor’s MeatOut proclamation. Pulled pork, hot dogs, and burgers were offered for free. Many of us took advantage of this, but also celebrated the traditional Kersey burritos. After a stop in Erie for cider on the way home, I guess you could call this a calorie positive ride. Kim and Sam soldiered on, heading home, as the rest of us faded from too many calories, to finish ahead of us."

Most relatively nice weather expectations ever?

11 starters and 11 finishers rode the Carter Lake - Campion - Populaire 112k. Our gallant ride leader Paul Foley reports:

"We had a successful ride with eleven starters and finishers on a beautiful Colorado spring day. Thankfully the snow had melted, the wind was light, the company outstanding, and the jokes atrocious (as usual).

The temperatures were pleasant, but not quite as warm as forecast. Two areas of construction added some flexibility in the routing and adventure to our navigation. We had the pleasure of welcoming Bill Dossett, who has returned to randonneuring, after previously doing his riding in England."

Thanks to Paul Foley for leading this traditionally delightful ride, and for the cheery pictures below!

Frostiest Rawhide Ramble Yet?

16 starters and 13 finishers rode the Rawhide Ramble 200k. How frosty was it? Well, it didn't warm up from the 20's for quite some time, which got the better of some, and was uncomfortable for all. But camaraderie and the rando spirit came to the rescue!

Our friend Paul Foley was back in the saddle after recovering from his clavicle fracture, his R-12 and P-12 series intact!

Thanks to Mike Turek for leading!

Windiest Windsor Wanderer?

18 starters and 18 finishers rode the Windsor Wanderer 200k. Originally scheduled for the 9th but postponed a week because of chance of snow. A brisk ride, but sunnier than predicted. This bringing with it ... wind!

Thanks to Paul Foley for leading, and helping us start off the rando year while recuperating from a clavicle fracture suffered last month!
