I am thinking about doing a multi day ride in Colorado in September. Is that too late? does anyone have any suggestions for roads, points of interest, etc? thank you
I did Pikes Peak on the LT last year in early August. I was nervous about the gravel stretches but they are very doable. There was decent scenery on the way up and down, but mainly it's neat to say "Done it". Be sure to go in the morning. They said it normally clouds over in the afternoon.Foiler said:Nice! Havent fgured out exactly where we are going to go but we definately need to get out of this state and see some other areas. My wife is out of school for two weeks in september and it just happens to be during her birthday. I told her a nice birthday ride through the rockies sounds good :histerica and she agreed!! I sure am lucky and have a great wife. I definately want to make the ride from Durango to Telluride. Has anyone been up Pikes Peak on their LT?
Sounds and looks good!Have you been to Taos NM before?Or Breckenridge CO?Cute little towns,but it's gonna slow you down a bit.katnapinn said:HERE IS day 2 of my route to CCR, I've done the Million Dollar Hwy so I was looking at some different roads to get to Wy or Idaho. Would like to keep it to 500 miles max so we can stop & see stuff. Also Steamboat Springs is not a Must ,it just fit in the mileage range. How does this look to you guys that have rode these roads.
I've been to both in a cage but not on a bike. My ridin buddy is worried about 500 miles in the mountains in 1 day as he likes to stop & I promised we would stop some.simonrobi said:Sounds and looks good!Have you been to Taos NM before?Or Breckenridge CO?Cute little towns,but it's gonna slow you down a bit.
