On Tuesday, we decided to do a day trip on March 17 which will be a either a bike ride (Cycling MB; Mountain Bike Requirement) or a hike (Hiking MB requirements), weather permitting. Please sign up for either the Hike or the Bike on SignUpGenius so we can decide which one to do on Sunday: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F054BACA929A4FC1-mountain
We will let you know tomorrow what the final decision is.
The route will be the same for either event: from Palmer Lake to Colorado Springs via the Santa Fe Trail. The route is about 20(+) miles.
On Saturday, ASM Blake McTee will check the trail and report back to decide if the trail is suitable for biking or hiking.
If we bike:
The plan is to meet up at Goose Gossage Skate Park (Mark Dabbling Blvd: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-104.8267472,17z) at 8:30am and carpool to our start point in Palmer Lake. This way, drivers can return to Goose Gossage and pick up their vehicles and not leave a vehicle in Palmer Lake. This ride should take around 4 hours (give or take). (9am-1pm)
If we hike:
We will meet up around 6:30 in Palmer Lake (https://www.google.com/maps/place/198+County+Line+Rd,+Palmer+Lake,+COemail@example.com,-104.9109997,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x876caecf444acde9:0x735ec489ae80492d!2sPalmer+Lake,+CO!3b1!8m2!3d39.1222138!4d-104.917204!3m4!1s0x876caeeea51ce7d5:0xc320cb0a584447f8!8m2!3d39.1258551!4d-104.9088069), ready to hike! We will hike down the Santa Fe Trail and end at Goose Gossage Park for pick up. We are planning about 7 hours to complete the hike. (7am-1pm)
