Thread: Riding vacation Colorado

  1. #16
    Hi Everyone, just wanted to thank you all for helping me out. I'm still working on the itinerary. I had a bit of construction stuff to deal with last week so sorry if I didn't get back to everyone right away. But looking through this now and wanted to say thanks (eh!).

    Is Vail/Aspen/Breckinridge/Montrose worth visiting? crowds?

    We're trying to keep daily mileage reasonable so we get off the bike and do some walking about each day. Say around 3 hrs/day riding..
    Mount Evans! Highest paved road in north America. If its clear the view is incredible.
    Not as busy as pikes peak ( traffic can be tough go early)

The speed limit dropped passing by but not entering Tres Piedras. After that I was being very careful and still got ticketed for 57 in a 55 near Buena Vista.
    A ticket for two miles over??? Talk about pathetic That LEO must be going through a divorce...

    Suggest you get a copy of Steve Farson's book: "The Complete Guide to Motorcycling Colorado". He's a former member.

    Lots of good CO feedback

    The thread has reached the "too long" stage, but I'll throw my 2 cents in as a Colorado rider. Butler maps is one of the best sources to start your research for planning. Check the app CDOT for road construction!! Some great roads can be a nightmare of delays. Do the desert portions with very early starts and you'll be rewarded with epic vistas. Cheers and have a great ride!
