Comments: Thank you for submitting the kmz file

We have concerns with the section of the race that goes west off of the Front Range Trail along CR 30, around Donath lake, south on CR 13 to where it connects with the Boyd Lake Trail.

There is little shoulder on any of these roadway sections so if this route is approved we would want to see a one lane closure on the entire stretch described above not just the section around Donath. This is still not ideal because it creates a long detour route that is not well received by the other road users.

We would prefer if the Front Range Trail was used all the way to the Boyd Lake Trail.
