We will be leaving Saturday July 13th, riding out to the Crystal lake cave area (South of Dubuque) enjoying winding roads along the way and some great roads in that area. It will be a full day of riding but we will arrive at the hotel with time to freshen up before heading out to dinner.

Our 2019 Front Range Ride, led by Wayne Kirkpatrick, will form up on 5 August at the Alex Johnson Hotel, in Rapid City and depart on a six day ride home, along the Front Range, via the Rocky Mountains, Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, The Great Sand Dunes, Angel Fire, NM, Red River, NM, and the Santa Fe Trail to Dodge City and Boot Hill. This ride will be about 2,000 miles over 6 days, returning on 10 August, with the option, on any given leg of the trip, to cut the ride short and head directly back home for those who have to be back by a particular date / time. We’ll buy you a drink in sympathy. Contact Wayne or Mary Kirkpatrick for more details or to join up (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org)
