Thanks to everyone for coming out; that ol migrating route year over year for the HalfAss definitely presents challenges… but it’s said that it’s all in the journey, even if one is looking for the ‘end’ all day!
[Staring in Ned, to town of ElDora up 505 and down the old original Secret Trail to Caribou Rd, back up to grab sweet Sherwood Creek that drops back to the highway, then up to Rainbow Lakes Rd. (intersection 1) Head to CU Research Station and up to the huge Niwot Ridge for a wheel-less hike a bike down into Brainard Lake, catch South St Vrain Trail all the way down to Tahosa Camp at the highway (intersection 2 at Sourdough Trail). From there take the highway and Overland Rd to Ceran St Vrain Trail, take that all the way to Raymond Store half way point for a resupply if needed. Roll pavement back to Camp Dick and catch the full Sourdough Trail all the way back to Rainbow Lakes Rd. Final bailout option straight back to Ned or complete the final leg from Switzerland Rd down through Gordon Gulch trails to Sugarloaf Rd and then head back to town.]
Wx is looking great for tomorrow, high of 80 and not showing chance of rain.. (can we forgo a rain jacket??). Happy Trails will be open pulling expresso at 6 or 6:15 (it’s early for mountain folks so please support). Bring your map and we can mark up key junctions. Still expecting to launch early but let’s plan on a group talk at 6:30 then ready to roll.

It was a beautiful day for another big ride on the Front Range. With infinite rocks between the sweet sections making for longer times than one might expect. Chad Kittles takes it again, with 9hr flat (for only 72miles!); both Scott Engstrom and Chris Parks got er done as well, at over 10hrs. The rest of us bailed out of a section here or there for the long slow spin home.. or straight to the bar as it were.
What was the final tally? Did everyone finish? How did your ride go?
I’m confused about the date of the Cougar Slayer. On this page and on the Cougar Slayer website it says the date is August 31, however, later on the cougarslayer website it says this: “September 20 we’ll all be out there unofficially racing together.” Which date is it?
Yep, I concur with Matt that there is an open ITT format to encourage the Strava virtual competition dealio, but the event to be at is on Aug31 — cool group of sponsors and prizes; aid stations to keep your spirit high and cranks a spinnin; and a pot luck party in the park at the end.
Hi Carol, it looks like both – ITT submissions through September with an actual ride date of 8/31 if you want to be out there with others. Their website take precedence over this one so please make sure to follow all activities there. http://thecougarslayer.wordpress.com/about/
Join us on Aug31 for some fun in the sun!!
Cougar slayer is an awesome event, especially since the organizers family runs the whole event. This is truly a one of a kind event. Thank you!
