Hi, all --
I'm starting up this discussion thread because I've had a number of previous requests from Colorado members for a way to connect with others to arrange rides in this area.
You're invited to tell this online community about your riding interests: day rides, weekend overnight trips, week-long or other multi-day trips -- either self-contained or by using your credit card to cover the logistics. I have also found that it's useful to be pretty specific in describing your own riding preferences for such things as daily distance, riding pace/speed, what area you prefer to ride in, etc. when you are seeking riding companions.
If you are unfamiliar with the logistics of organizing and planning a multi-day and/or self-contained trip, I and many other folks in this forum will be happy to share our experience with you. It's not really rocket science, and different arrangements will work for different people, but we'll all try to ensure that everyone's on-the-road experience gets better. It's especially my hope that anyone who is anticipating their first overnight bike trip will use this space to make that experience a great one.
