Group Ride on July 21 Meet at 630pm and take off for event at 645pm!!!

On Thursday, July 21st we will be doing a different type of Group Ride. The New Belgium Brewing Clips Beer and Film Tour will be taking place at America the Beautiful Park that night which is a really fun event if you haven’t been before.
The event begins at 7:30 pm, there will be an assortment of New Belgium beers for sale and local eateries McCabe’s Tavern, Front Range Barbeque and Jake and Telly’s Greek Tavern will be on hand to serve up dinner. Aside from being really fun and having some great beer and food, is that the money from beer sales benefit local non-profits UpaDowna and Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates. At dark, the film portion begins with a selection of short films on interesting topics. This event is in its seventh year. Be sure to read up on it if you plan on attending so you have all of the details.
In past years, we have found that many of our volunteers would like to volunteer for this event also, leaving us short-handed. As well, many of our members have chosen to go the event. So this year, we have decided to join up with the event! We will meet at Monument Valley Park, north end where Fontanero dead-ends, and ride down to the event at 6:30, depart at 6:45. After we arrive you are on your own to stay at the event or return to where you parked at your convenience. If you are riding your bike at night, make sure you bring your lights with you! The return ride will not be hosted or guided by WMBA.
We will not be doing any kind of skill sessioning along the way and we will not be broken out into groups. We will just be leisurely (or quickly, whichever you prefer!) making our way down to America the Beautiful Park to join in the fun! If you feel like joining from another location, feel free to do so. Hope to see you there!
