Has anyone driven the road up to Pikes Peak Colorado? Just wondering what kind of shape the surface is for a Wing to ride. Thanks.
That is what happened to me. I left Oklahoma on a hundred degree July day. The next day on top of Pike's Peak it was around 30 degrees and sleeting. :snow1: Inexperienced me did not have any kind of jacket so I just shivered. The trip was still enjoyable despite the temperature. I plan on doing it on the wing next year.biker1usa said:Do it in the summer when the weather is good. It can be 80 degrees at the bottom and about 30 or so on the top. Dirt roads but easy to ride. Beautiful view on the top.
What CD didn't tell you is that all that weather (and more) he's experienced could be on the same trip! Not uncommon to have it all.Canyon Dancer in Colorado said:I've done it in all kinds of weather from rain to snow flurries with the bike. Even camped overnite half way up during the July 4th hill climb (we had snow on the tent in the morning). But in a little while it will be a piece of cake as they have been ordered to blacktop it to the top because of environmental issues caused by the dust and other things that only environmentalists understand (but they are so much smarter than the rest of us so there must be plenty of good reasons).
