Due to lack of participation sign up for the 14er campout, the boys decided to forego the campout and have a bike ride instead.
They planned to ride the same route we hiked from Palmer Lake to Goose Gossage Park. The route is just shy of 22 miles, but with a little loop at the end, we will round it out to the required 22 miles.
If you are interested in joining the boys for the trip and getting credit for the 22 mile mountain bike ride for the cycling badge, please sign up (RSVP) for the ride.
We will meet up at Palmer Lake at 7am and begin riding shortly after that, something like 7:15-7:20.
This is an easy ride, mostly down hill-ish and on a walking path (Santa Fe trail).
Required equipment includes a helmet and a pack with the 10 essentials. Also, bring a snack or two and maybe a light lunch.
