Ride the Rockies is June 11-17 and is 412 miles over 6 days. It starts in Crested Butte and ends in Gerogetown.
And then there is the Bicycle Tour of Colorado which is June 19-25 over 7 days (6 days of riding). It is a loop that takes in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Glenwood Springs, Frisco, etc.
I hope I can get over my joint issues and in good enough shape to one or the other. I like both routes and ideally would love to do both. There would not be a problem getting off work---just not sure my joints are going to let me do one and especially both......
Anyone else considering doing one or the other??
For folks that have ridden these passes would you have a preference on one ride versus the other this year?
(I was watching TV last night and they showed Truckers managing their way from Durango to Ouray on the Million Dollar Highway. We did that stretch on our bikes last year and it was neat to see the roads again. I recognized a number of the scenes, passes and switchbacks. I didn't realiize the road was so hazardous--glad I didn't know it then!!!)
