road bike weekend: 10th annual huntington canyon and scofield trip - July 8, 2017
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.We'll camp again this year at Old Folks Flat campground in Huntington Canyon, partly because it has water and flush toilets, and partly because it offers a nice variety of ride options.-----Some trip details: We'll drive down Friday (Jul 7) afternoon or evening and camp Friday and Saturday nights.-----Saturday, we can ride down the canyon from camp to the Huntington Power plant, then up to the summit and back down to camp. Another option is to ride up the canyon from camp, over the summit, on down to the upper end of Electric Lake or even the top of Eccles Canyon and back to camp. Either way, you'll see scenery to die for at the top of the canyon (trust me--it really is that good). The rides are in the MOD+ to MSD- categories, but you can make them easier if you want by shortening them.-----Sunday morning we'll pack up and head for home via the Energy Loop Scenic Byway, stopping in Scofield to do a three-legged ride in the valley. It ends with a must do segment up to the charming little mining town of Clear Creek (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.
