The workday is set for* Saturday, September 27, 2008 *at Durango Mountain Park. This event will celebrate the planning and implementation of the work of the Durango Mountain Park Stakeholder’s Group.

On Saturday morning (September 27th) a cannon blast starts the tour(s) and a Police Escort leads the riders out from the center of campus. There are 5 food/aid stations along the way, and support vehicles on the course. The second party is at the finish line back in the center of campus. Its the Merrill Lynch Lunch! The rides are legendary, and the parties are out of this world! The ridership is limited to ensure a quality event.
