Laporte Loop on Thursday? You want to!

Looking out the window, I feel like we need to get out and ride before October is over!
I have been playing West of Laporte for the past months and thought about stringing a few things together, which in turn would make the Laporte Loop:

a) Meet at 0945-1000 at the “Me Oh My Coffee and Pie” at 3522 West County Road 54G, Laporte, CO 80535 (coffee shop across from the Cache LaPoudre Middleschool). Fuel, defuel =) and ride.
b) Ride up the Rist Canyon
c) Stove Prairie Road toward the closed portion
d) Into Buckhorn Road
e) Up Moody Hill
f) Down Crystal Mountain
g) Via Buckhorn to Pingree Park Road
h) Return via Old Flowers Road to Stove Prairie Road
i) Rist Canyon back to Laporte

This will probably be a good four hours – I do not do Baja on my KLR…, The map is built in reverse (I am too lazy to switch it, haha) and Moody Hill is missing, as Google cannot connect Crystal Mountain to Moody Hill. They need help getting the Camera Prius up there…

https://goo.gl/maps/kFTxG

I will be at the “Me Oh My Coffee and Pie” at 0945 on Thursday. Who is in?

Question

And I am still not sure why the embed maps link from google terminates in nirvana?! Let me know what I am doing wrong... It only shows the plain map, never the route.

Well it all depends on how you sell it. E.g. you could need the day off in observation of national orthopaedic nurses day or national candy corn day. Pick any out of the following

Dunno, I tried a couple of things, but one of mysteries of Google Maps is why when you switch from the map with the path on it to earth view it loses it too. Whoops, did it a second time and it worked.

But if you right click now on the broken pic indicator and open in a new tab, it will appear.

I'm tentatively in depending on my boss deciding if he wants to see me Thursday afternoon or Friday.

Sounds good, again: National Orthopaedic Nurses Day is definitely a reason to walk away tall

Thursday is iffy for me but I know Wednesday works. Mind if I join you on the Wednesday ride? What time are you heading up?
And maybe I'll be able to do the Thursday ride too.

How can you guys sell Coronation Day in Cambodia on Wednesday easier than Candy Corn Day on Thursday? Wish I could.

That's too late for me to get back and pick up the kids at the bus stop.
Guess I'll do that RMNP / Walden loop I've been contemplating, or maybe the Laramie / Saratoga / Walden loop.

Hopefully they will reopen Trail Ridge for you!!! It is currently closed due to the recent high country snow and ice. Have you ever done the route between just east of Cameron Pass and Wood's Landing? Then you can take dirt on a 9 mile trek to almost Albany then head to Laramie from there. There is a split off the dirt road between Wood's Landing and Cameron Pass that will take you back to Red Feather Lakes as well.... Don't ask me for tracks or road numbers though but I know they all show up on maps!
