Routt County Riders Group Rides [Events Calendar]
RCR Monthly Social Rides
On the third Monday of each summer month, meet at the stables at the bottom of Emerald Mountain at 5:45 p.m. We’ll ride various routes along the trail network then move the party to Carl’s around 7 p.m., where you can talk with board members and volunteers one-on-one about all that’s going on with Routt County Riders. First beer is on us!
RCR Night Rides
At RCR Night Rides on Emerald Mountain, participants experience the thrill of night riding with a qualified leader. RCR provides night lights (to the first 10 who show up) and the suggested route. Riders are asked to sign a liability waiver in order to participate. Gloves, eye protection, helmet and a small pack to carry light battery are helpful. Rides last approximately two hours. These rides occur in the fall, when the days shorten (and thus, the NIGHT starts earlier), but because the weather can be iffy, it’s best to check our calendar or Facebook page for upcoming opportunities.
