Join DLC for our May mountain bike ride! We are expanding the mountain bike program this year and will be offering a guided ride at a different open space each month. This ride at Bayou Gulch/Two Bridges is appropriate for all levels, beginner to advanced. In addition to the ride, a few fundamental bike riding skills will be covered. Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in and safety check of helmet and bike (you must wear a helmet to participate!) Other gear you may want: knee-high socks, knee and elbow pads, sunglasses, water in a riding backpack, and gloves.

Registration is limited. The ride is open to 15 years and up. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The ride is free, but a $10 per person donation is suggested so that we may continue to offer educational outreach events in the community. You can register here.

Meet your guides:

Caroline Smith: Long time resident of Highlands Ranch. I love to wander on any of my bikes (mountain, gravel and road) all over Douglas County and all over the US doing various types of events. I raced for many years, but now I enjoy showing others fun places to ride in this amazing county where I live and got to explore extensively while doing the DCOS/DLC Decode Program during COVID and each year since. I look forward to sharing my passion for riding bikes and exploring trails with others.

Jay Poules: Jay Poules, a Castle Rock resident, is a life-long cyclist and enjoys riding the trails throughout Douglas County on the many open space properties we are fortunate to enjoy, with this Guided Mountain Bike program focused on properties that Douglas Land Conservancy holds the conservation easement for. Come join us!
