ID: 744 Event: Wanda's Ride for Recovery Status: APPROVED Application Date: 07/25/2013 Event Date: 09/28/2013 Organization: Fort Collins Cycling Club Phone: Address: PO Box 273427, Fort Collins, CO 80527
Permit Type(s): County Road Website:http://www.fccycleclub.org Location:
All routes begin from the parking lot near Lee's Cycles at 921 E. Harmony Dr., Fort Collins, CO. The routes take different directions and exit the parking lot on the east and west sides of the shopping center complex. The finish points for the routes is the same area where the ride began. The short route (6 mi) remains in Fort Collins, the intermediate route (23 mi) includes Fort Collins and the Boyd Lake area of Loveland, the long route (56 mi) leaves Fort Collins heads to Horsetooth Reservoir then proceeds north to Owl Canyon returning through Wellington on it's way back to Fort Collins. Maps and cue sheets are provided with exact directions for the routes.
This charity bicycle tour is sponsored by the Fort Collins Cycling Club, a non-profit organization and the proceeds will be donated to a care fund for Wanda Roche. Wanda is a cyclist from Fort Collins who was severely injured in a bicycle accident and as a result of the accident is paralyzed from the waist down.
Registration for the event will occur at both the club website and at open registration the morning of the event. The event will begin at 8am and we anticipate that it will end by 3pm. The proposed date for the ride is September 28, 2013.
We hope to have approximately 200 cyclists participating in the ride. There are 3 routes and participants can begin the ride whenever they chose after 8am and as long as they have completed the ride by 3pm. There is no mass start so as a result riders will be dispersed throughout the routes and we believe there will be limited interference with street traffic. The routes are deliberately designed to include passing parks and rest areas where bathroom facilities exist. The intent is to have no negative impact on the environment and all riders will be expected to dispose of waste properly.
Local area bicycle clubs and bicycle shops will assist in providing sag support and technical support to the cycling participants. A

I've re-routed the middle distance ride for this charity event. See the new attached route for a 26 mile distance. The previous route has been deleted from the attachments.
Comments: This review was forwarded from the City of Loveland Traffic Division to the Loveland Permit Coordinator for review. A portion of the middle route is in Loveland jurisdiction. The event organizer must submit a separate event permit in Loveland before a status application can be provided. When submitting the application, please include the 'middle' route map. The Loveland Permit link is: www.cityofloveland.org/EventPermits
Comments: I spoke with Mark Mettler this morning, Mark advised the number of riders registered is 80+ and half that number is expected for the 56 mile route. Because of the low number of registered riders a CSP permit is not needed. All state laws must be followed. Captain Rob Marone 09/27/13.
Comments: Currently we have a project slated on the 56 mile route, it is the 2013 Overlay Program. If you have any questions related to this route please call (970) 481-3845. We plan on not paving on the weekend however that may change.
The 6 mile and 23 mile routes are clear currently of projects. If things change I will update this page.
Comments: Please ensure that a detailed emergency communications plan is available, and that all staff and volunteers are familiar with the plan.
