4/18 Stove Prairie 200k - Ride Status Update

Despite persistent rain and rain/snow mix at the lower elevations today, there has been some road clearing, as predicted. This is good news for the Horsetooth Populaire, which is currently slated to go ahead as planned. Final decision up to the ride leader, Tim "Foon" Feldman, at the ride start.

The Stove Prairie 200k is a different story. Given the multiple-foot-depth accumulations at Stove Prairie, with it snowing there while it rained down here, plus crisper overnight lows, passability on that segment is not a good (or safe) bet. So we are rescheduling for next weekend - probably Saturday; word in a day or two.

So have fun on the Populaire and/or enjoy the balmy 70's temps we will be experiencing a couple days from now ... during the work week.



  1. The populaire enjoyed wonderful spring riding conditions. A start at about 45 degrees and 60 before riders were finishing. There were cinnamon rolls at Verns, and a main group of seven for much of the ride. Thanks to everyone that came out!

  2. Great ride, great weather, and a wonderful route, Tim. But keep in mind that "suggestion" I made about climbing hills not so fast, okay? ;-)
