MOUNTAIN  BIKING  on MONDAY AFTERNOON, from April through late October The first 6 weeks of rides, about 6-10 miles, will be done on very easy single track trails in the Denver Front Range.  These first 6 rides will be very basic in nature and we will coach people in proper biking techniques and trail etiquette.  You should be reasonably fit, have a bike capable of carrying you safely over dirt and rock trails.  You will be required to wear a biking helmet on all rides.  We will cancel the ride if weather is not good for safe riding or if trail conditions are potentially hazardous.  We also do not want to cause damage to our trails by riding through mud or snow.  If we have sufficient numbers of riders attending of differing ability levels, we will split the group into a fast group and a beginner group.  Rider safety is a high priority for us.  We will not leave any riders behind.  Contact Scott at
