RIDE & DINE

THURSDAY, September 6 | 3:30 PM | $150++

We invite cyclists to join us for our Ride & Dine Dinner Series, embarking on a journey from The Little Nell by bike to arrive at Toklat in the Ashcroft Valley, a rustic chic cabin owned and operated by the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES), for an al fresco dinner. Before departing from the hotel, you will have the opportunity to select wines for dinner from our 20,000-bottle cellar with Wine Director Carlton McCoy, Master Sommelier. From The Little Nell to Toklat, the route climbs 13 miles alongside breathtaking meadows and ranches. Upon arrival, you'll be treated to hors d’oeuvres and a farm fresh dinner prepared by element 47 chefs, featuring fresh ingredients from ACES’ Rock Bottom Ranch, and other local and regional purveyors. Meet at element 47 at 3:30 pm to sign waivers and purchase wines. We’ll depart the hotel for the bike ride at 4 pm.

About Toklat:
The Catto Center at Toklat was once the family home of one of ACES’ most influential founders, Stuart Mace, and holds great meaning for the Aspen community.Toklat, an Inuit word meaning “headwaters,” was built by Stuart and and his wife Isabel in 1948 as a wilderness lodge and family home.The early dog sledding trips, the pristine sub-alpine environment, and tall tales told around the hearth in the evening drew both locals and visitors from all over the world.

In 2004, with the help of long-time ACES supporters Jessica Hobby Catto and her husband Henry, ACES bought Toklat to preserve Stuart’s legacy and this community touchstone. Toklat is located near the headwaters of Castle Creek in a dramatic landscape and serves as a gathering place for cultural and ecological discourse. Environmental leadership, tempered with the courage of conviction, is a central goal of Toklat programs.
