Cool2 2014 Colorado Western Slope Fall Colors Tour

Colorado Western Slope Fall Colors Tour
Begins Thursday, September 25th
and ends whenever you get tired of following me around


And now, for something completely different

Joe and Bonnie are selling their house in Steamboat Springs and taking their act on the road so we are starting our first night near Granby. Routes, directions and other info will be updated on this first post.


This is a big bike, 2-up do-able if you've got the skills, camping in a different spot each night tour of the Colorado Western Slope high country. We camp at lower elevations. These are all good forest roads and any routes that don't have a good base will have an alternate if it rains. There are paved routes around to the camps if any want to do road bikes.






Thursday night's meal will be at Pat's home near Granby where we will be camped in her mountain retreat. Ribs? with sides provided. 10$ at the door so please only sign up if you are going to make the event.


Everyone brings their own quick breakfast so we can get on the road. We stop for lunch and usually do Saturday dinner out. Remaining days are plan as we go. Routes will be posted on this first post

Stay tuned for updates.......

High Country summers are WAAAYYY too short, so I'm not going to use the "F" word yet... But, the COLORS are always beautiful!

Congrats The Rizz!

I had a blast ridden with you guys last year, but I was hopping to ride the Telluride area this same week. Difficult choice, life is hard.
Russ and TBob you going to slow down and wait for us this year?

Count me IN. (But probably just Thursday night)

With a second kid now (2 1/2 and 4 mo) I wasn't sure if I could get away. But it looks like my wife is ok with me joining the fun for a night and a little of the ride on Friday.

Barbara and I will do what we can to join you (2up). We likely will have to play catch-up on Friday as we cannot get away Thursday.
