Ride The Rockies 2020

Unfortunately, the RTR was cancelled for 2020 because of the pandemic. The ride is expected to return in 2021 and the route is planned to be a Durango Loop: A loop around Durango to Cortez to Norwood to a loop around Ridgway and finally, a three pass day back to Durango. The San Jouns are spectacular and there look to be some new roads taken. It should be a good ride.

Cottonwood Pass

Cottonwood Pass construction is complete and the east side is completed repaved and smooth as silk. The West side has also been paved to Taylop Park and is smooth and wide open. A few of the hair pins have been removed and a brand new rest area/rest room has been built lust below the summit. I've riden out and backs twice here and love it. Beuna Vista seems ready and willing to accept people back after our little shutdown. Just wear a mask in public places. It's good for you, good for others, and good to get our ecomony rolling again. Oh, and it's it law for at least the rest of the summer.

CO River Rd Detail

I'm leavinmg this on the front page just because it's a nice, peaceful ride out of Dotsero and void of many people. I'll be working this into a day or weekend route plan shortly.

Day and Weekend Trips

Coming very soon... I've been taking time during the pandemic to set up a few day and 2-3 day trips to take. I've got about six complete and just need to get a few more details worked out and will be posting those soon.

Personal Rotes For:


This site is most comprehensive for Colorado. However, I have a growing database of bicycle routes and tours in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arizona, Vermont, Utah, California, and of all places Lithuania. Routes include descriptions, directions, and topographic profiles. I will continue to add routes as I develop them.
