Yes, Randy, myself and a couple of others have been exploring and updating many of the passes and gpx waypoints in the past couple years. Any ones in particular you are interested in info. on?

I'm going to keep trying...
Super old post and you probably have since forgotten. I had success on my iPhone attaching the file as an email and opening from there in google earth.

My own list now has over 300 ridable passes plus several more unnamed passes. There's plenty out there to explore!

Randy Bishop is still the Pass Bagger guy. He keeps up the list at http://passbagger.org/

Check it out, over 500 passes listed there. If you have more, then I'm sure he'd love to update his site. He keeps it updated frequently.

Randy is indeed the Pass Bagger guy!

For the past 4 years or so, I've been working with Randy and a couple of other riders to ride many of the passes on his list, expand his pass list and make corrections for accuracy. Also ridden and explored many unnamed passes in Colorado. In the process I've created my own list that is strictly motorcycle rideable passes (which I was referring to in my previous post). Randy's list covers all named passes in Colorado...rideable or not. Working on an updated gpx. Mapsource pass list as well.
