Castle Rock’s 6202 Cycling club (named for the Town’s elevation) is comprised of members who periodically join together for bicycle rides and undertake community service projects, while also assembling to perform regularly scheduled maintenance and clean-up for local parks and trails around Town.
Scheduled rides often begin and end at sponsor’s place of business. Members will meet at local hangouts such as Lost Coffee or Maddies Biergarten, where 6202 cyclists can socialize and enjoy food and drinks before and after the rides.
From casual, slower paced riders to racers or mountain and road cyclists, the club has rides to entertain almost any riding style and/or ability level. So whether it’s a weekend ride starting at Hidden Mesa to downtown Denver and back; a Tuesday “hammer time” 20 mile road ride for the serious cycling enthusiast; or the Thursday “social” ride, ending at Maddies (of course) for bicycling conversation, there really is something for everyone.
Along with helping Castle Rock draft, build and develop local trail networks like Ridgeline and Rhyolite Parks, 6202 Cycling members have also been known to participate in several organized local and regional rides. This year they will again have a team entered to ride in the upcoming gigantic Subaru Elephant Rock race. A ride that truly takes cyclists through some of the most beautiful trails the Town has to offer.
But if joining 6202 Cycling seems intimidating, their are options for the less serious bicyclist, okay, non-serious bicyclist, (over 21) who is serious about local fun. Clearly, we want to give a nod to our friends and local favorites, the Castle Rock Cruisers.
The Cruisers are fun bunch of residents who take a more casual and social approach to cycling, often sporting themed outfits to go along with themed activities. Year after year, they continue spreading smiles throughout the Castle Rock community, with their light-hearted kindred spirits of good cheer.
Whatever you choose, get out and enjoy the amazing amount of fantastic trails Castle Rock has nearby. And remember to ride safe and always wear a helmet! For more information on 6202 Cycling visit: http://www.6202cycling.org/
