Highline Midnight Rally // June 9th, CO

Posted March 16, 2017 by in Adventures

Plans are still coming together, but for now we know this: we will meet the evening of Friday June 9th along the the north end of the High Line Canal at dusk (close light rail access is a high priority – either the Peoria or 61st and Pena Stations along the A-Line). We will then head south along the trail – front and rear lights are a must. Perhaps a mid-ride stop for a quick beverage. Some general shenanigans along the way. And of course we will stop for every possible photo op imaginable…

While the canal ends on the south end of Chatfield Lake, we will loop back through the park to the Platte River Trail for those wanting to ride back into town OR to Mineral Station on the D-Line, for those who are done riding and prefer grabbing the train back to town. This route provides easy entry and exit points for folks to chose their own start and end points – so do it all, tack on some extra, or simply come for as much as you can. The route from Peoria Station to Mineral Station is approximately 75 miles with 1,400 ft. elevation gain.

This is a “come one, come all” style rally.

Extra style points for anyone dressed in rodeo-themed attire…
