Turkey sandwich ride 11/24

It looks like a couple of us are going to be doing a ride on 11/24. Please consider this an open invitation to pack a turkey sandwich or two and join us.

When: 11/24/2012 (yes, Saturday)

Where: Departing from Canyon Coffee - 1791 S. Eighth Street, Colorado Springs, CO. 9:00am. Old Stage and Gold Camp roads to Cripple Creek, then out around SE Park County. Probably just cruise back to CS on Hwy 24 from Lake George. Folks from Denver metro can bail on Hwy 285 or 67 to make a bigger loop if they want.

What: It'll be roughly 70/30 dirt to pavement with the hardest part being two track with a couple of mildly rocky and sandy sections. Mostly easy with about 5% intermediate. This will be most of the dirt riding: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=824521

Count me in! Saturday looks to be a decent riding day.

That's great. Looks like we're going to have a decent sized group.
