Wow, 24 is a good turnout. We would have made it 26, but we were in Dallas visiting my son, fiance and seeing Eric Clapton and friends.

We had a great time on the San Juan Fall Color Ride in Durango this weekend! 24 club members rode up to Durango on Friday afternoon and enjoyed delicious pizza at the Siesta Motel Friday evening. On Saturday, we rode the loop from Durango-Silverton-Ouray-Dolores-Durango and enjoyed perfect fall weather. We rode the Durango Trolley into town for dinner at the Carver Brewery Saturday night and then rode home Sunday morning. Thanks to everyone for coming out and making this trip a great time!

This event is coming up soon. So far about 20 people have indicated that they plan to attend and I think it is going to be an awesome ride!

If you have not RSVP'd for the ride, or if you need to modify your plans, please visit https://loebmwr.ivolunteer.com/durango_fall_color_ride. It is particularly important that the count for the Saturday night dinner be accurate so I can make a reservation for the right number of people. If you have issues with using the form, please send me an email with your plans at activities@loebmwr.org.

Here are some logistics:

Friday 9/20

1 pm: Meet at the Sandia Pueblo Railrunner station for a prompt 1:15 departure. The station is located just north of the traffic circle at the west end of Roy Avenue.

6 pm: Meet in the parking lot of the Siesta Motel, 3475 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301. Weather permitting, we will order pizza and enjoy it in the gazebo in the motel parking lot. BYOB.

Saturday 9/21

8:45 am: Meet in the parking lot of the Siesta Motel, ready to go. 3475 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301

9:00 am sharp: depart for the ride north. Here's the map: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pyHYI ... sp=sharing

~noon: Lunch in Teluride, TBD.

6:30: We will take the Durango Trolley into town to have dinner at an as-yet-to-be-identified eatery. You will need $1/person each way, exact change required.

Sunday 9/22

Ride home.

Here is a link to a GPX file with routes for the ride to the Siesta Motel in Durango and for the San Juan Fall Color Ride: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-1gTNu8-v_oo7FrXnqSc68lghLMOPZPr/view?usp=sharing

I am really looking forward to this!

Kathy and I have reserved our room.

They have a 48 hour cancellation prior to arrival, so book now even if you're not sure about your ability to attend that far out.
Life can be more exciting when viewed at different angles...

San Juan Fall Color Ride - September 20-22, 2019

Postby SandyBallard » Mon Oct 01, 2018 8:14 pm

The weekend of September 20-22, 2019 we will have a club ride to Durango and ride the loop from Durango - Silverton - Ouray - Telluride - Dolores - Durango during (hopefully) the peak of the fall colors.

Here is a link to a Google Map of the Ride:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pyHYI3sW7O5VjCCq9oNxIbsKfq56gazm&usp=sharing
The ride is about 225 miles and Google says it should take about 4:45 riding time.

We will ride up to Durango on Friday afternoon September 20, 2019, arriving by about 5 pm, and stay 2 nights at the Siesta Motel (https://www.durangosiestamotel.com). Friday night we will enjoy some pizza in the parking lot of the motel. After the ride on Saturday, we will hop on the Durango trolley to go into town and have dinner at an as-yet-to-be-identified eatery. Then we will ride home on Sunday morning.

Everyone is on their own to make hotel reservations at the Siesta (https://www.durangosiestamotel.com). You should make your reservations early because they are a popular motel in a popular town at a very popular time of year.

Please let me know if you make a reservation so that I can occasionally notify our members how many folks plan to participate. Two members have already made reservations! (Amy and I).

Logistical details relative to meeting places and times, both in Albuquerque and Durango will be forthcoming as the date approaches.

Cheers,
Sandy
