Just curious what the thoughts are for a first long distance (ok I know it it only about three hours) ride. If it turns out to be too much of an adventure we are going to Breckenridge.
And of course if anyone want to join us let me know.
Moot made three good suggestions. I also like to go thru the Poudre Canyon (14 out of Fort Collins) to Walden then over to 40 to Steamboat.
The only downside I can think of is that on a holiday weekend you'll want to get started early unless you like sitting in traffic...
I have been over all of the roads this season including Trailridge and they are all pretty clear. (Trailridge has the usual snow run off so be careful of ice in the early AM)
EDIT: Almost forgot - Steamboat has their annual hot air balloon festival the first or second weekend of July so you might want to start looking for rooms now if you plan on staying overnight
The only way to live is in the wind....
