10:30AM, MTB, P2, T2, Ridgeline Open Space.  Join Cathy Leibowitz and Jim Black for a ride in the Ridgeline Open Space. The Ridgeline trail involves a good deal of climbing (and descending) as it winds through and over valleys, ridgelines, open grassland and Gambel oak groves.  The plan is to ride clockwise around the outside loop. That is about 9.5 miles, but there are many opportunities for shortcuts or bailouts.  It is strongly suggested that riders check out the trail map in advance and even bring a copy.  The map is available athttp://crgov.com/DocumentCenter/View/296/Ridgeline-Open-Space-Map-2020-PDF?bidId=.  On the other hand, any gluttons for punishment can add mileage by connecting via a pedestrian overpass to the trail network at Philip S. Miller Park on the east (seems like south) side of Wolfensberger Road. THE FOOD:  Afterward, a picnic in the parking lot.  Bring a chair and food and drink for yourself. THE DIRECTIONS: I-25 south to exit 184 at Castle Rock (Meadows Parkway).  West about 2.2 miles to Coachline Road.  Left (south) about 0.5 miles to Foothills Drive.  Right (west) about 0.4 miles to Clear Sky Way (just past the school).  Left (south) for three short blocks to just south of the school.  Turn left (east) into the Bison Park parking lot. (Ochre Drive is on your right opposite the parking lot entrance.)
