Join DLC for our July 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 Greenland Open Space is suitable for any level of rider. 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.

Where: Greenland Open Space

When: Monday, July 29, 9-11:30am

Meet your guides:

Larkspur resident Kimberly Klus desires to encourage and ride with new mountain bike riders. She likes to explore all of DLC’s protected open spaces on wheels and learn about the early history of this land. Mostly she is thankful to live and ride in the foothills of Colorado!

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!

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.
