    Looking For Partner To Do 14ers Loop With

    I am interested in doing this bikepacking trip:
    Colorado 14ers Loop - BIKEPACKING.com

    I'm looking for two things, some general advice and a partner to go with me.

    I'm wondering if anyone has advice whether the last week of Sep would be possible to try this. I realize nobody can predict the future weather that far in advance. I'm asking this question to locals who know the conditions and could give advice about what it has been like the last few years.

    I'm interested to know any other general details or suggestions about the trail that are not already listed on the website.

    The tentative dates that I'm looking to go are Sep 21st to 30th. Approximately 9 days should equal about 30 miles per day.

    I'm looking for a partner that would like to try this with me.

    Thanks in advance for any advice/input/partners.

    Might be a little late in the season to attempt that route, that first photo on your link might be very appropriate. You'd need to see what the weather outlook was right before you wanted to start.

    There's truly no way to know until the time comes. Some years that timeframe is perfect, with pure blue skies and no threat of the July/August monsoon thunderstorms. Nippy, so even in perfect conditions make sure you've got a warm bag and warm clothes.

    Other years, you'd be better off with snowshoes than a bike. Long range forecasts are pretty much worthless, so you'll have to wait and see.

    If I was a gambling man, which I'm not, I'd wager that it's gonna be perfect this year. Plan it out and be ready, sounds fun!
