road bike: huntington canyon and scofield weekend trip - July 12, 2014

We'll camp Friday and Saturday nights up top again in Flat Canyon campground where we camped the last two years. DISCLAIMER: The campground has pit toilets; and it does not have water again this year.-----Saturday we have a couple of good options for rides: (1) We can ride in the area between the upper end of Electric Lake and the top of Huntington Canyon starting from our campground, or (2) We can drive to the lower part of Huntington Canyon, then ride up to the summit and back down. Both are very good rides. They are in the MOD+ to MSD- categories, but you can make them easier by shortening them.-----Sunday morning we'll pack up and head for home via the Energy Loop scenic byway, stopping to ride part of it between Highway 6 and Scofield, with a leg up to the charming little mining town of Clear Creek (optional, but really a must do-it's just too good to miss). This ride is in the NTD+ to MOD category, depending on how far you ride.-----Contact Robert for more details and to register.-----NOTICE: My brother and his two children (now ages 13 and 9 and still very well behaved) who joined us the last few years will join us again this year. They will just camp and eat meals with us; they will do their own thing during the day. We will most likely have a couple of dogs along, too, that will be kept on leash in the campground (campground rules require it).
