We're planning our route home from GWS next month and looking for places to stay that are interesting to visit AND ride so we don't spend a long week in the car without any riding. We'd rather ride on our own, after breakfast, than meet a group.
On our last trip to GWS (2010) we spent nights in Moab (en route to GWS), Salida, Santa Fe, Durango on the way home.
So far we're considering a drive through Aspen, stopping at Salida for lunch (we spent the night there last time), and stopping at Taos for 1-2 nights.
Can anyone suggest any must-see stops along this route back home (to SoCal)?
