Annually there is a great bicycle ride through the mountains of CO, which this year tours much of the western slope Included is a ridethrough the high passes high elevation of the San Juan Skyway into Durango. Take a look at the link -- and make your plans for 2011! It takes a year to become fit, doesn't it?
Not all riders want to sleep on the high school football field. Some like comfortable B&B beds and hot showers. And firends can tag along with their cars, providing side trips into the beautiful CO countryside. http://www.ridetherockies.com/
