The ride leaves from Gold Strike Park and visits 17 other parks in 17 miles. Several are Arvada gems you might not be aware of. The ride is a big loop uphill to start and then finished from the west downhill. History of each park is provided.
This will be a 5 mile ride on trails and bike friendly streets. We’ll leave from the roof of the Olde Town Hub parking garage head east on Grandview, west on the Ralston Creek Trail and back east on 57th to Scrumptious for ice cream all around.
The ride heads west to Golden on a slight uphill route and then heads back to Van Bibber Park. We were supposed to watch the parade but Buffalo Bill’s Days was canceled, so we decided to do the ride anyway as it is a great, scenic 15 mile route.
