some of our 2017



  • Tuesday, August 1st, our State of Colorado celebrates its 141st Birthday.

I have created a special list -  "Corinna's Calendar of UTC Fun Things To Do"  in the Greater Denver Area, with a Summer 2017 Version, posted for each month.    ​​     Corinna Robert, Summer Chair.

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

  • Saturday, September 2nd - "Dierks Bentley" at Fiddler's Green.
  • Monday, September 4th - UTC Annual "Summer Wake" Picnic Party on Labor Day at DeKoevend Park.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to our volunteers at the Registration Tables - Rust Grout, Daniel Burseth, Rob Stiller, Vern Wilson, Bobbi Taylor, Jay Corbett, Steve Eschenbach, Ted Cross, Linda Stowell, Linda Jones, Genger Burrola, Joyce Young, Joe Summers, Erin Hunsinger, Tim Powers, Gordon & Geraldine Baron.   I know it's hard to break away from friends to have to go to work.  Everyone was generous and even waited till their relief came before leaving.  We were a bit short handed at the later shifts, so Joe, Ted & Tim stayed to help me out.  Special thanks to Ted for the lists he made to make our job easier.   Our club (a non-profit organization) depends on our volunters to make our great club work.  Thank You also to the all the other volunteers - cooks, beer pick up people, clean up people and anyone else I might have forgotten.
