road bike: huntington canyon and scofield weekend trip - July 11, 2015

We'll camp Friday and Saturday nights up top again in Flat Canyon campground where we camped the last three years. DISCLAIMER: The campground has pit toilets; and again this year it does NOT have water.-----Saturday we have a couple of good options for rides: (1) We can start at our campground and ride in the area between the upper end of Electric Lake and the top of Huntington Canyon, 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, ending 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 son (age 14) who have joined us the last few years will come again this year. His daughter (age 10) can't come this year, but we will have another 11 year old boy along. The boys and their parents will camp and eat meals with us, but will do their own thing during the day. We might have a dog or two along, also, that will be kept on leash in the campground (campground rules require it).
