Training Rides in Denver/BoulderJer77

Besides the training crits on Sundays in Boulder, are there other good training rides in or around Denver and Boulder? Kind of new to the area.

Some to consider in Boulder:

Swift Cycling (www.swiftcycling.com); don't know their schedule but they seem to have a lot of participation.
Louisville Velo (east of Boulder) will start 6PM Monday and Thursday nights as soon as the time change, they currently ride at 10AM Saturdays, all rides leave from the shop.
Boulder Women's Cycling Team: This is the team I ride for and our Monday night Rally ride is open to anyone, social / recovery ride pace; we get all levels of riders from Cat 1 guys to never-evers. Our rides start up 6PM Monday nights from RallySport gym (29th and Valmont) after the time change.
Women can do the "Title 9" ride from Sports Garage in Boulder on Thursday nights; go to www.cosports.net for more detail

I might recommend avoiding the "Psycho"Logic ride in Boulder and the Meridian ride south of Denver as they merely tend to P.O. drivers and are major testosterone-fests.

Check on www.americancycling.org for further details on clubs and races in the area for more hookup info. Good Luck!

Thanks LFR
I have done the Meridian ride and it is a mess, pain to get there too. I am not familiar with the Logic ride. Is there a ride that leaves from a hardware store in Boulder? My browser indicated that www.swiftcycling.com is unavailable. Do you know how the Louisville Velo rides are on Sat?

www.cyclingevents.com - my bad

I think the rides from McGuckins ARE the Cycle Logic rides. All I know is I was told early on to avoid both the "Bus Stop" and the Logic rides.

My boyfriend rides for Louisville Velo. Their club rides are a mix of Cat 3/4 guys and are pretty decent. They practice a modified "no-drop" policy meaning they will wait for flats / mechanicals, and regroup at agreed locations for dropped riders.

Swift Cycling has rides at 10AM on both Saturday and Sunday
mornings. They meet in front of Vic's Coffeeshop.
30th between Iris and Valmont. Good turnout, various levels.
They also do a Wednesday night hillclimb, same place
5:00 PM.

Not So Swift Al
