Route Profiles?

Postby dimitri » Sun Jun 14, 2009 10:17 am

I was wondering if there will be route profiles (altitude gains) posted for the CO Weekend rides? Last year in this forum it was stated that they were so flat it wasn't worth doing. But since it says there are both challenging and progressively easier options, I would sure like to see the profiles so I know what I'm up for on the longest option for both days.

Thanks,

Dimitri

This would be good to know so I can see which routes I can take my daughter on without ruining the experience for her. :)

Yes, I was hoping to see that too. I'm doing it with my wife on a tandem, and I'd like to get an idea of hills so we can decide which routes to do.

I see the Profiles are now up for each day- Thanks!

Anyone else looking go to main page-Route and then click on each day for the map and profile.

Lazlo, if you are doing CO week ride, you can easily do the day 1, 64 miler. Even if you aren't doing CO Week ride, and you ride a lot, you can still do it. I ride 3/4 of that ride all the time. Great route ! Haven't done the day 2 route tho.

DETAILS ABOUT 1ST DAY LONG RIDE

Postby slv0700 » Sun Jun 28, 2009 5:50 pm

From Monmouth to Hwy 22 won't be an issue; Oakgrove is fine; Orchard Hts is hilly & windy; if they are going on Eagle Crest, couple climbs & hilly;
then you are lucky that they are going DOWN Gibson, because it's almost 3.5 miles mostly 8% with three short 12%; (I just did this going up & great for hill practice). then to Brush College: 8% climb right a way and goes for about a minute (in a car,) then long decent and rolling; then across the road to Spring Valley: short 8% climb then rolling hills while climbing, but easy grade to Hopewell Rd. Hopewell is rolling hills with one 8% short climb. Flattens out right before getting into Hopewell. Then cross the Hwy to Webfoot, which is flat; Fairview is flat (sometimes there is a dog on the right side of the road, fenced yard, right after turning on to Fairview. Hwy 153 into Amity, rolling hills; Broadmeade, rolling/flat; Perrydale Rd is flat.....so it's hilly going to Amity only. Wouldn't take kids that haven't ridden hills a lot if on their own bike. You need to like hilly roads to want to do this first part, but you can always take the option route and go straight up 99W into Amity & bypass the hilly part. I don't think they are taking Walnut Hill after Fairview(it's right across from the end of Fairview, but very hilly and also goes into Amity. It looks like at the end of Fairview they are jogging left and going Hwy 153 to Amity. (Atleast that's the way I'm going !)

Thanks for the details. We're taking the shorter option. If it was just me, I'd do the longer route, but my stoker's not up to anything more then 40 miles or so.
