We're thinking of including Pikes Peak on our return trip from Wing Ding. Anyone been there and what can I expect...temperature, road conditions, traffic, etc.?
Mt. Evans: would be more of a; "I rode to the top of the of the highest paved road in the United States" thing.Werfa said:I think Pikes Peak is more of a "I did Pikes Peak" thing, which is obviously why we want to do it. Being from MI, and traveling through about 80 miles north, it would be a shame not to do it. One of our members did it last fall and said there was about 3" of mush all the way up. I'll look into Mt. Evans though.
Mt. Evans is too far from Montrose to include on a day ride, but folks coming out from the east could hit it on the way to Montrose or on the way home. It is neat to ride to the top of Mt. Evans, but I think you'll like the awesome rides out of Montrose.davidmc said:WingnutZZ, I had in my mind that Mt. Evans was part of your July plans.
Am I wrong about this?
That would be the Royal Gorge Bridge across the Arkansas River, a few miles west of Canon City on US-50. About 1000 feet above the water. Wood decking in the bridge makes it very interesting for both walking and riding across.Werfa said:LTH, great pics but you need captions so we know where they are if there isn't signs. That bridge is awesome!
