2017 Colorado Ride & BBQ

Yea that's right.. we're going to do it again!

The official 2nd annual Colorado Ride BBQ is planned for Saturday August 26th. Day rides to follow on Sunday and Monday, same format as last year. This date should allow most attendees to make it home safe and sound before the looneys come out for the Labor Day weekend!

This may come as a shock to those that were here last year but there's still no new hotels in the booming metropolis of Whitewater Colorado! LOL (I'd be ok with a gas station really!) If there's a general consensus on where everyone wants to stay I can go put the finger on hotel management for a group discount. Something to consider and discuss in the coming days and weeks ahead.

Mark your calendars!

The list so far.. (I need to do this for my own sake! LOL)

If your name isn't listed above, let me know and Ill get it up there!

Best Western Grande River Inn and Suites in Clifton

I have 10 rooms set aside at $104.00 a night plus taxes and other fees. I thought that was pretty fair considering the time of year, August is still tourist season here.

To reserve your room Call 970-434-3400 between 7am and 3PM weekdays and speak with Elissa or Sandy. Tell them you need to book a room for Darbs Colorado Ride and BBQ and give them the dates. The rooms are set aside for Friday night 8/25 thru Monday night 8/28.

These prices are good until 7/25 when the group rate reverts back to regular nightly rates so the key is to book before then. If we happen to take all 10 rooms they will set aside more. I doubt that will happen but its nice to know were covered.

Wish this was the weekend before or after the Crossroads Rally.
Maybe I'll be over the Rally by then!
Can you bring some samples to the Rally?

What's your definition of cheap? middle of the road, by the hour or bed bug cheap?

We've got a KOA relitivly close too. Last year people stayed all over. Some at the Best Western in Clifton, some I believe at the motel 6 on Horizon drive and others at the Raddision Suites.

Tim,

Unless you want to go up earlier or later, I'm probably going to meet up with Arizona Jim in Paulden and ride up. You're welcome to go with if you want.
(I think Jim will let me ride with him, I'd better ask)
