Slowest Death Ride Ever?

4 starters and 3 finishers rode the Colorado Death Ride 360k. Corinne reports:

"The Colorado Death Ride, taken from the stock of RMCC Triple Crown rides reimagined as brevets, was held for the first time this July. A small pool of riders, just 4 starters and 3 finishers, likely speaks to the distance the ride is from the Front Range where most of our rides start. The beauty of this course is unparalleled, though, even starting in Ridgway at 3 a.m. and experiencing most of Red Mountain Pass in the dark.

"The expected chill in the mountains gave way to stifling heat as riders descended into Durango and on to Dolores. Depending upon speed, we experienced headwinds where there are customary tailwinds and showers to downpours at various places on the second half of the course. Without support, times for this route were slower than Triple Crown times, but as one rider said, 'I think this dethrones the Grand Loop as my favorite ride of all time.'"

Thanks to Corinne Warren for leading!

Most Typical Colorado High Country Ever!

30 starters and 25 finishers rode the fifth edition of the Colorado High Country 1200k.

At the start of every Grand Randonnée, all organizers dream that the weather will be perfect and everyone will finish. We had a great group of riders (30) and a good finishing rate (83%). But the sunny and dry weather forecast turned into a shower the first evening, a series of blustery and windy showers – featuring “lentil-sized hail” according to one rider - the second and third afternoon, and a brief welcome-home shower at the finish line. Everyone showed grit and perseverance, and for two riders – Matt Bell and Bill Watts, second time was the charm as they came back from DNFs in 2021 to finish successfully. Our wonderful volunteers:

- Brent Myers and Beth Long (in charge at Walden)
- Kyrsten Bell (wife of rider Matt Bell)
- Beverly Weigel (mom of rider David Weigel)
- Pam Wright (girlfriend of rider Dan Driscoll)
- Patricia Heller
- jle

Some stats:
- 30 riders, including two 1000k riders
- 83% finishing rate
- 83% non-local riders

Congrats to the finishers, and special thanks to our volunteers!

First Palmer Divide Gravel Getaway!

4 starters and 4 finishers rode the Palmer Divide Gravel Getaway 125k Populaire, part of the 2024 Gravel Rouleur series. David Weigel reports:

"The forecast for a good chance of thunderstorms was in the back of our minds all day, but we lucked out and were able to stay dry. Winds, washboards, and sections of soft sand/gravel added to the difficulty of the steady rollers and nearly 100km of unpaved roads. All worth it in my opinion to explore Douglass and El Paso counties on much less traveled roads. Another good day behind bars."

Thanks to David Weigel for leading!

First Roggen Roll Audax Ever!

9 starters and 9 finishers rode the Roggen Roll Audax 200k. Captain / Commodore Mike Turek reports:

"Great showing for our 3rd audax; Colorandos and Texas Randos blended to make a perfect Audax day.

"Everyone loved Jim Howell’s route. Everytime we jogged north, we witnessed the morning sun light up the front range snow covered peaks. The fields were all green; cows and horses curious… and the traffic light.

"Pepper Pod in Hudson was gastronomic; almost 2 hours of Rocky Mtn oysters, Pasta, steak sandwiches and the best Reuben I’ve ever had west of Mississippi. Shared dessert was mascarpone or carrot cake…wow! We had been ahead of schedule; long lunch put us back on track.

"Then the Crosswinds and sprinkles came…hard work after lunch on a full stomach…but shortly tail winds to platteville and longmont allowed us to digest the huge lunch and arrive at Chez Turek right on time.

"Backyard relaxing - Once again, no one was in a hurry to finish….but eventually we had to trundle into Niwot.

"The audax format is total break from racing for time…with the right mindset for social riding, it is an awesome relaxing fun ride…and good training for RAGBRAI 🥳"

Thanks to Mike Turek for leading and his commodoreship!

First Ever South Platte Sojourn Populaire!

5 starters and 4 finishers rode the South Platte Sojourn 157k Populaire. David Weigel reports:

"Starting slightly under-layered was the way to go as it quickly warmed up for a nice late-May ride. All of the unpaved sections were in great condition and delivered as advertised: low traffic, great views. Headwinds going into Deckers were rewarded with a fun and fast stretch along the South Platte, then the North Fork of the South Platte. All randos were off the course by the time the afternoon storms developed."

Windiest Poudre Canyon Brevets Ever?

16 starters and 16 finishers rode the Poudre Canyon 300k/400k/600k. David Weigel reports:

"Nearly ideal temperatures, views of the rock walls and roaring water in Poudre Canyon, and a handful of wildlife sightings were a few of the many highlights of the ride. 100 miles of headwind, some mechanicals, getting caught out in a rainstorm, and various other setbacks ensured that both mental and physical toughness would be tested. Two main groups formed and met up briefly at some of the controls. Three of the riders on the 600 rode through the night, and the smart ones got some sleep after the first 400."

Most Flèche First-Timers in Years!

17 starters and 16 finishers spread across four teams completed another successful and fun Colorado Front Range Flèche. Weather was dry and mild, 40° to 50's and overcast becoming sunny on the first day, upper 30's overnight. We returned to the Coal Creek Golf Course Grill for a delicious post-flèche brunch, a venue we also used in 2019 and 2023.

Stove Prairie

20 starters and 18 finishers rode the Stove Prairie 200k. This brevet was delayed one day because of snow on the preceding two days. Fortunately, the Stove Prairie webcam let us keep apprised of evolving road conditions. Great turnout for a chilly start in the 30's that only occasionally seemed warm in the course of the day, with temps topping out in the 50's but plenty of sun later on. An unusual down-canyon wind added more work climbing Poudre Canyon, and the cattle guards over Stove Prairie Road have become rougher over the years, so you have to be (more) careful, but in the end, an enjoyable time for all!

Smallest Horsetooth Hop Ever!

6 starters and 6 finishers rode the 125km Horsetooth Hop Populaire. It was an extremely nice day to ride, with temps from the 50's and topping out at 82°. Small turnout no doubt in part because of the Kiowa-Falcon-Limon 200k the day before. (The Horsetooth Hop had been rescheduled from a week earlier because of damaging winds.)

This ride qualifies for credit towards the RUSA Rouleur award .

First Ever Black Forest and Back Brevet!

15 starters and 15 finishers rode the inaugural Black Forest and Back 200k brevet (based on the longstanding perm route). Rescheduled to March 23 because of snow on March 16.

Corinne reports: "Rather nice weather for late March graced the inaugural Black Forest and Back. The ride was not only successful, with 15 starters and 15 finishers, four of whom were first time riders, but it was a lot of fun. Starting out with 50+ miles of headwinds encouraged riders to band together on the long, low grade uphill that comprised the first half. Only a brief stretch on Hodgen provided a bit of respite until the turnaround point in Black Forest. The hard work to get halfway was rewarded with a brisk tailwind on the long, slight downhill to the finish, and riders flew on the return to Bennett, ending on a high note. The second half of riders had a bit of dust to contend with as well, but as one person said 'For an out and back, that was a pretty nice route!'A big thanks to Kyle Gustafson, who volunteered to drive Daniel Tom back after the ride, which allowed him to participate, even though he had transportation only one way."

We welcome a number of first-timers, and at least one rider joining us again after a few years away.

We hope that for those who came out to start their rando season with this populaire, that you will back for the next populaire and the 200k brevets coming up.

Snow-Free Boone Boondoggle!

4 starters and 4 finishers rode the first-ever Boone Boondoggle 200k brevet, based on the Boone Boondoggle Permanent route. This ride is a loop starting in Boone, CO, east of Pueblo. This brevet was postponed one day because of snowfall in our area Friday into Saturday. (No snow down south where the ride was.) Mike reports:

"Many folks concerned about the roads early Sunday morning decided to skip this brevet. We 4 put our faith in CDOT and frankly they made the highways safe for travel.

"We were greeted by dry roads, mostly sunshine and chilly cross/ tailwinds to La Junta…headwinds (but not fierce) on the 25 mile rough chipseal section to Sugar city. 'Climbing makes you stronger, headwinds make you meaner, rough chip-seal sucks your will to live…like a Dementor.'

"Anyway, we were rewarded with rear quarter cross winds on the way back in along with majestic views of Sangre de Cristo and Spanish Peaks.

"We rode fast due to good rotation of pulls all day…Daniel pulled his weight. I hope he’ll make it up to ride with us more.

First Bo-Lar Boogie Ever!

14 starters and 14 finishers rode the Bo-Lar Boogie 200k. Corinne reports: "Both sunshine and chilly temperatures - but no parking lot ice! - marked the kickoff to the 2024 brevet season with a new route, Bo-Lar Boogie. Jim in his velomobile got a slow start but more than made up for it as he and Colin leapfrogged one another the length of the route, with Colin catching him on the hills and Jim flying past on the descents. All the riders enjoyed the course with better roads out east than on Windsor Wanderer, less traffic, and new miles for those who had not ridden the route as a perm. The coda to the ride was a couple miles slightly uphill into the coldest wind of the day; this made everyone very glad to finish and get into their heated cars. Considering that all 14 starters completed the ride, we are off to a successful and exciting season with lots of new routes and hopefully, some new riders as well."

Thanks to Corinne Warren for leading, and to Jim Howell for developing this route!
