Sept. 9th - Doudy Draw and Springbrook Trails

This week's ride is a tour of the trails on the west side of Highway 93 in south Boulder. We will ride some of the newer trails in the Boulder system, including the Springbrook loop. This ride features swoopy fun trails with beautiful views of the Flatirons. The trail is beginner-friendly but fun for more seasoned riders. We will likely split into groups based on skill level, so beginners and more experienced riders alike are encouraged to come out - everyone will get a good ride in!

To carpool, meet at the Basemar Shopping Center on the southeast corner of Broadway and Baseline. From there we will head to the Doudy Draw trail head. Be at the carpool spot around 5:25, we'll be leaving for the trail head at 5:30. If you want to meet at the trail head, take Eldorado Springs Drive west off Highway 93. The Doudy Draw trail head is on the south side of the road (left) and please be there ready to ride by 6:00 sharp.

Dinner and drinks will follow at Larkburger at 2525 Arapahoe (near Zolos).

Hope to see you Thursday!


  1. Once again, I am probably a No-Go, due to work. If I get done in time, I may meet up with you all at Larkburger!

  2. I will be there! I am hearing differing recommendations about air quality. Boulder County says to stay indoors, while the State of Colorado says to worry only if visibility is less than 5 miles. We will assess late tomorrow to make sure that the air quality has not deteriorated a lot.

  3. I am pretty sure I will be at the TH, hopefully with the wind blowing NE the air won't be too bad.

  4. I'm finally going to be there!!! YEAH!! I will meet you all at the trail head if the airquality is okay. Romy, if your coming will you pretty please bring my camel bak. If not I'll try and get it later from you. --Kay
