    Colorado trip in August seeking MTN Bikers for ride over the San Juan's

    Want to meet up and ride the San Juan's? I can take one who will share gas cost. Here is my plan for August 13 - 21.

    INFO AND MAP here: http://www.summitpost.org/plans/view...p?post_id=8855


    If you live in Austin and want to go, leave message 512.796.5339

    We could plan a group if you have more who want to take cars up there.
    I finally made it. And when I'm not online, I ride a Marin Mount Vision 5.7 to the top of the world and back.

    I'm heading up that way the week after you but will be going more in the Durango area. You picked the perfect time of year to hit up the high altitude stuff.

    My wife and I have done the Alpine Loop a few times when we had a Jeep. So I'm training for this ride daily and at 50 - it's a pretty big goal. But I think by leaving early in the A.M. from Lake City, I can make it in about 8 hours (The downhills will be awesome . . . I'm going to invest in a small water filter so I can refill from the stream on the South / return side of the loop.

    This morning I am searching the files for the map "Jeep Trails Of The San Juan Mountains" purchased years ago. That would help me with the Silverton - Rio Grande Reservoir ride plan.
