bike touring--ride across colorado • 10 days

This will be a 380 mile ride from Grand Junction, CO to Denver, CO (about 55 awesome miles per day.) Enjoy MSD days in the saddle with plenty of sightseeing and time for enjoying gorgeous scenery. A large portion of the trip will be on bike paths and there are a few steep climbs over passes (McClure, Vail, and Loveland Passes--a total of over 24,000 ft of climbing for the trip). You should therefore plan on riding a touring bike or a rig with very low gearing. This is a self-supported credit-card trip (we'll be staying in hotels each night). The trip itself will be limited to 10 riders and I guesstimate that it will cost around $500 per rider for food, transportation and lodging. Trip includes 6 days of riding and 1 day off in the middle with travel days on each end. Registration required and a deposit of $100 due NLT Mar 1. Contact Angie for more information if you're interested in this adventure.
