I'm looking forward to a cycling trip from Denver to Aspen in July (7/12 - 7/15).
I've gotten two options, one through Independence Pass http://www.mapmyride.com/s/routes/vi...enver/12745484 and the other through Kenosha Pass http://www.rmccrides.com/denver_aspen.pdf
I'm concerned about finding accommodations along the way, with the idea of stopping around mile 70 on each day and arriving in Aspen on day 3.
Also hoping to find places to eat and purchase Gatorade along the way, if possible.
I've heard that Kenosha pass is gentler on the cyclist, but has fewer accommodations, so I'm tempted to do the Independence Pass route.
If anyone has recommendations for motels along the way, I'm very much obliged.
