    This Saturday, Nov. 9th., a road bike ride east to Ordway then southwest to Walsenburg. It should be nice weather for some open country riding. All are welcome. Meet at the gas station in Penrose near the corner of 115 and 50. We will leave by 9:30. . . come early for coffee and a snack.

    OK, I got the "Go Ahead"!
    She is not teaching this Saturday.................as of right now, I'll be there!
    I'll try to get there early enough to have a coffee and maybe something to eat.
    It'll be a chilly ride down for me.

    It was nice on the plains today. I won’t be there tomorrow. Wish I could. But I will add a pix of today to wet the apitite. We had a good burger at the Rooster in Calhan. The paint mines colors weren’t vivid today. But still pretty cool place.
    Have a great ride tomorrow.

    Great ride out eastern Colorado with good weather and not much wind. Thanks to all who came. We started with 10 and ended up with 5 at Walsenburg. The first picture is Rocky Ford stop with 9 of us then the second one is the middle of nowhere on State 10 about 50 miles east of Walsenburg. 106.JPG 108.JPG

    It was a great day! Not sure that route would happen unless it was winter and I was following 10 other riders. I learned about SH 10, you can go fast and they still leave you and George did a great job of putting it together! Thank you all and nice meeting you. Hutch

    Had a great ride, and it was great to meet you all...................Thank you George for putting this out there, and leading the group.

    My FJ enjoyed getting to stretch her legs!

    Thanks for the pictures and route map, Allen. It is a great road to stretch are motorcycle's legs. To bad we couldn't go to "world famous Ordway' and down 71 to Rocky Ford but it worked out okay. Some of you might remember about 10 years ago about half the town burned down and a fire fighter was killed. Also, it is the gateway to Punkin Center.:imaposer
