FOLKS: Planning to take on Ripple Creek Pass this weekend. Just south of Steamboat Springs / Hayden Airport. Riding westbound from Dunckley Pass up and over Ripple Creek. Dirt Track up to the top for about 11 miles (MTB or gravel bike preferred). The uphill will be work (grades in the 6% range common). Down the west facing slope toward Buford to the NORTH FORK campground at about mile 22. From there, switch to road bikes and ride down the pavement and into Meeker, CO for lunch.
Plan to leave Silverthorne area around 0630. Then onward to Yampa and Dunckley Pass. Meeting on the west base to Dunckley where Road 19 & 6 meet at the East Williams Fork Creek / Bunker Creek. Should be an awesome day for riding in the gold Aspens.
Working on SAG issues now for this two bike adventure.
Who wants to Ride Ripple Creek Pass tomorrow—Saturday the 29th? Small group is headed that way from Silverthorne…. We will finish up in Meeker around noontime for lunch. Should be back in Silverthorne in the 3 to 4 timeframe.
