    Maybe this isn't the proper place to be asking but I'll go ahead and do it anyway and hope people aren't too shy to tell me to take a hike.

    I currently live in San Diego but will be moving to Denver come May. While here in SD I've participated on several DS forums although i've mainly used ADV rider as a informative resource than an active riding bulletin. For the more regular rides I've turned to a local forum called San Diego Adventure Riders - locals know it well. I've met many people through SDAR and hope to have a similar experience when I move to Denver.

    So therein lies my question. Does anyone know of a forum or dualsport club in Denver (or front range) with an active member-base and regular rides?

    Help is greatly appreciated!

    Rockies is my main hookup for rides in CO, UT, & NM.

    There's usually more happening here than I have the time to do, and the folks I've met in Rockies have become great friends.

    Why make it complicated, one site does it all pretty well. There's no shortage of DS opportunities here and we even throw in some attitude free of charge :deal

    There is a yahoo group called Colorado-dualsporters but it has been pretty quiet. Maybe you can pump some life into it .:1drink

    I just shut down my Colorado dual sport website. Apparently there are a lot more riders than computer geeks so there wasn't much traffic on it. I will definitely be more active this season so I will be posting rides as they come up.

    I thought there was a local group that did a Denver to Breck round trip in the dirt every year as soon as the snow melted. But I can't find it here or anywhere else for that matter.

    There is NO dualsport riding to be had in Colorado, hence no dualsport club. :D

    There's the Front Range Riders http://frontrangeriders.com/. This group teams up with Northern Colorado Trail Riders http://nctr.net/ to put on the AMA sanctioned Moose Run Dual Sport, a two-day rally out of Walden, CO which features A, B, & C level loops. A is oriented toward moderately technical single track along with ATV trail and some paved and dirt roads. B is less technical single track with ATV, dirt & pavement. C is for large dual sports and uses graded dirt roads and pavement. This year, proceeds went to Stay The Trail, the Trail Preservation Alliance, and the Blue Ribbon Coalition. Something to keep in mind when you're out this way. It will be held August 1-3, 2014.
