The 6th Annual Ned Overend & Bouré Bike Fweest
September 14-20, 2008

The 6th Annual Boure Bike Fweest went off with nary a hitch. We had perfect weather and toured roads that many locals had never ridden. We changed some of the rides from past years so that every ride left from Durango proper. We added another day of mountain bike riding by adding the "best ride in Southwest Colorado" (as claimed by our MTB Clinic leader and lifestyle guru Chad Cheeney) and rode up the Colorado Trail from town to just below Kennebec Pass. The weekend rides were well attended by working locals, so we had big groups of up to 60 riders filling the roads like a not-so-professional peleton. The weekday road rides all included sections of dirt road that the La Plata County Road Department had in near perfect condition for our mid-teen sized groups (Thanks Doyle Villers!). And Ned led a group of nearly 20 mountain bike riders on Telegraph Trail system, accessed just 1/2-mile from downtown Durango, but physically separated by Raiders Ridge just several hundred feet above town. Thanks to our friends from Arizona, New Mexico, California and other states that attended this year, we enjoyed your company!  Watch the web site for pictures, and if you were here and took some pictures, please send them in for posting. We are already looking forward to next year, although Wade admits he will need to be in better shape!

The 6th Annual Ned Overend & Bouré Bike Fweest Schedule

These rides are not supported and are for fun. This is not a race, we just want you to join us while we do a week of our favorite Durango rides, during the (usually) warm and dry days of mid-September. Riders of all abilities are welcome and we have chosen rides that show off the local scenery and variety of terrain. Most rides have longer additions, or short cuts, to match your needs.

We can't force you, but we highly recommend helmets, we will be wearing ours. Although we will provide any assistance we can, please be self supporting for road food, water and clothing. If you forget something, the local bike shops are very complete and happy to help.

*Remember that any plan is subject to change due to weather concerns or road conditions.*

The general plan for the week, which is very fluid depending on who shows up and the logistical challenges which may arise (adverse weather, road construction, etc). We have a designated place for breakfast where we will start the ride, but certainly one can be enjoyed without the other.
