My wife and kids are flying to San Fran on June 4th to see my inlaws so I have a little time to go somewhere new a few hours away. Looking within the 3-4 hour drive of Golden area...Starting Friday June 5th around 1pm till Sunday when I need to be home by 2pm to pick my family up from the airport.
so my plan is to get to where I'm going Friday afternoon around 6 or so...ride for 3 hours or so...Get up at dawn on Saturday and ride all day...Sunday dawn again and ride till 10-11am and come home.
My original plan was to hit Fruita but I won't lie to you the heat and exposure to the sun would put a hurtin on me. I'm used to riding in the Humid, forest of the NC mountains and even the end of my Tour de Mines route was putting a hurting on me when I got to the sun drenched sections of Empire Pass.
So in light of that I'm thinking of hitting Salida. I know the Crest probably will not be open yet but I hear there are many cool rides in the area and even if a little sun exposed it'll still be cooler then Fruita. Any other towns I should consider or do you have a must do for Salida?
