    Colorado trail Tenn Pass to Copper..

    A group of us rode it in the summer of 2010, and I am entertaining doing it again..

    It was brutal towards the end. but we all made it in one piece, and only one rider suffered a flat tire.. Any takers? I am shooting for a group ride the end of July or Aug.. I am on the road the first three weeks of every month for work.. So that is the only time I can do it..

    PM me or respond if anyone may want to do the ride.. If memory serves me right we did it in 6.5-7 hours... (30 or so miles)

    Sort of backwards, but the Searle to Copper descent is better than the Kokomo to Camp Hale descent, IMO.

    Also, the road is currently closed due to the recent rains and may be for a while: U.S. 24 closed at Leadville due to giant sinkhole - The Denver Post

    I had a blast riding the down into copper, and had to speed check myself several times on the downhill through a nice boulder field.. The "backwards" route was well worth it imho!
