I rode from Littleton to Nederland via Deer Creek Canyon/285/Red Cone/Webster Pass/Loveland/279. Never ridden Red Cone. I figured if I made it safely (or not) on the WR, jakbrand on the KTM, who had mapped out all the trails we would ride, would know my limit...I did ride up to Red Cone...and down to Webster, no falls. Not a soul around from 285 to Montezuma, epic.
Here's the only evidence I have:
Plus this GPS photomontage, not sure it counts as evidence:
It was late in the evening and I had to push on to make to Nederland before dark. Cold. Light snow on Loveland. I took video of Red Cone but the memory card on my helmet cam had a fatal error and nothing I videoed the whole trip survived.
Jakbrand needed to do bike maintenance first, so he rode direct to Nederland late afternnon and waited at Sundance Lodge
. Dinner at the Lodge was fabulous. Try the grilled peaches for dessert.
