It's once again time for the Lyons Fat Tire Fest! It's hard to believe, but this will be the 7th annual. We will do 2 rides in 2 days up 2 different canyons. This year's fest will showcase some of the best riding found within a short drive from Lyons.
The first ride on Friday will be 2-3 hours long. We'll meet up at the shop at 2 and will drive from there.
The Saturday ride will be an all dayer, meeting up at the shop at 8:30 to arrange the caravan. This ride will be a point to point so there will be some shuttle arranging. We will cover approximately 25 miles with over 3500' of climbing and over 4500' of descending. It will be 60% steep and rocky jeep road with some pristine singletrack, mostly towards the end. There will be a bailout option as well. It sounds easy, but is anything but. Expect difficult terrain and some great views. If folks are not using my name in vain by the end of the ride, it won't be a Lyons Fat Tire Fest type of ride. Gotta keep that Death March Dave nickname somehow. :)
After Saturday's all day extravaganza, we reconvene to party and cook out at the casa del Dave. I'll have a short course singletrack set up as well, so maybe we can look forward to a chicken crit or a time trial competition. We'll see...
