LCC will follow suit with USA Cycling and many of the other Federal and Local entities and stop gathering as a group in an effort to limit the exposure to Covid-19 in our community. Although those of us who ride are generally healthy and would be able to weather an infection without serious consequence, we do have a responsibility to those around us. We will not plan for any group rides going forward until further notice. Please join us in practicing appropriate social distancing. Be safe. We wish you and your families good health.
We will host a Saturday AM gravel ride this weekend.
We will still offer our typical road ride but if you would rather ride gravel then come join us for for a little fun on the back roads.
We will start at Centennial Park at 10:00 AM (if you cannot make up your mind whether to ride gravel or road, you can decide last minute).
See you there.
We will be changing our Saturday morning road ride time to 9:00AM for the winter starting this Saturday 10/12/19. We will continue to meet at Centennial Park to start the ride. Hope to see you there!!
The Monday morning beginner ride will now start at 9:00 AM through the end of October. The ride will then come to an end for the winter – unless the weather holds and Pam decides to extend it longer 🙂
The Monday morning beginner ride will now start at 8:30 AM.
Starting time for the Saturday morning road ride will change to 8:00 AM on 9/21/19. We will keep it at 8:00 for a few weeks then change to 9:00 depending on the weather. We will continue to meet at Centennial Park.
We hope that no one ever has an accident or medical emergency when riding, but we would like to be better prepared if we do have such an incident on a Loveland Cycling Club ride.
To help us respond in an emergency, Loveland Cycling Club will require that all riders on a Loveland Cycling Club ride – member or not – have on their person documentation of an emergency contact person and contact phone number. This can be in the form of a Road-ID type bracelet or simply written down on a card or paper in your jersey pocket or seat bag.
We thank you for following this requirement. We hope to never need the information, but want to be prepared if we do.
Saturday August 17th at 7 AM at Centennial Park parking lot. We will be heading to Hygiene out and back and possibly add on some side loops depending on the desire of the group. The route below is a little off because on the map it starts at the shop rather than the park but gives you an idea.
As always LCC facilitates this ride but each rider is responsible for their safety and equipment.
This Saturday we are going to offer two rides. For those who want to go long and climb we are going to do Glade road, north along the east side of Horsetooth, then up over Rist Canyon, and back through Buckhorn and Eden Valley. Approximately 70 miles and 6500 ft of climbing. See map below.
For those who don ‘t want to go that far, or don’t have the time, you can go with us to Horsetooth and then come back down the new bike path on Shields – Taft.
NOTE WE WILL START FROM CENTENNIAL PARK THIS WEEK AND WILL CONTINUE WITH THIS AS OUR STARTING LOCATION UNTIL THIS FALL WHEN OUR STARTING TIME CHANGES AND BREAKAWAY CYCLES IS OPEN WHEN WE START.
As always this is a ride facilitated by Loveland Cycling Club but each rider is responsible for their own safety and gear. As the longer ride is unsupported please be sure to bring plenty of fuel, both to drink and to eat. This will be a no drop ride in that we will regroup.
We really hope to see you all there,
