Vail CO area road ride questions
We will be staying in the Vail CO area (Avon) for a week in early June and wanted to bring our tandem with us. I have looked at threads on this regional discussion and reviewed Map My Ride. It looks like most of the riding is done on I-70 and/or Highway 24. Is this correct? Are there side roads that are ok to ride on? We have to ride about 20 miles on I-80 when we do a Sacramento to Tahoe ride and it is a little scary.
Can any of you give me an idea what the road riding is like in this area? Any roads that are better than others? Any other places to start/end (Breckenridge, Copper Mountain)? We are fine with altitude and climbing.
Thanks in advance.
