This will be a casual evening bike ride on the Poudre River Trail.  We will ride the trail from the Bellvue end to downtown Fort Collins (about 6 miles).  You can either drive or bike to the Watson Lake trailhead (riding encouraged).  We will make several stops along the way as I explain the water history of the area including early irrigation structures and current legal issues and environmental improvements.  When we arrive in downtown Fort Collins, we will have the opportunity to finish the evening with refreshments and/or dinner.  The trip leader is a "culturalist" with the Poudre Heritage Area.


Trip went well with 7 total participants.  Most rode to Watson Lake from home or downtown.  Carolyn co-led.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
