I plan on doing a preride of the Rico Run on Sunday August 8th. The southern section of the route only. You may ask why Sunday, because I am working on Saturday. The plan is to start in Rico at my house and ride up Scotch Creek to the CT and up and over Blackhawk to the East Fork Trail. Cross the highway to Groundhog Stock to Dunton RD and travel the Eagle Creek RD to West Fall Trail and up to the Calico and down Horse Creek and into Rico. I'm guessing around 7 to 8+ hours or so to pedal/hike this route.
Meet at my house with feet in the pedals promptly at 7am.
