Next up...the Tim Kalisch Memorial Grand Loop

Here is the important information regarding tomorrow's big ride:

Update: Friday, 8/9/10 at 9:35 am:

  1. Here's an important update that will effect all of the riders tomorrow! Due to some last minute health concerns, the driver of our second support vehicle will not be able to help out tomorrow, which means we are only going to have Charlie to provide support for tomorrow's ride (unless some is willing to "volunteer" a family member). This means that there will most likely NOT be water support in Granby. Riders need to be prepared for this are encouraged to ride with Camel backs from RMNP until Berthoud Pass. Alternatively, there are many convenience stores from Grand Lake to Winter Park, so riders can stop along the way for water refills and purchase other supplies. Charlie will likely catch up with a majority of riders on Berthoud Pass, but speedier riders will likely have to provide for their own provisions after RMNP! 
  2. I forgot to mention in the pre-ride instructions that you will need to bring your National Parks Pass OR $10 to get into RMNP. For those riders who reach the east entrance of the park before 7:00 am, this should not be an issue, but all other riders need to plan for this and expect that you will have to stop at the eastern entrance of the park to pay the fee. Unfortunately, your entry fee does not cover the expense of riding through RMNP...
  3. Please plan for the possibility of cool, wet weather! There is 40% chance of thunderstorms in Winter Park tomorrow and high temperatures are only expected to be in the 60s...
