Gentlemen. I'm out.
Got a chance to go to Mexico for a few weeks instead.

Re: The Great Divide Ride: June 10 - 16, 2017

A CannonRide Down the Great Divide (solo)

Just found this on ADV and have posted it here for the general readership

Cannonshot is a moderator on ADV and is known for his thorough, well documented ride reports. This is no exception.

This is the full ride, and is north to south, but the Colorado and New Mexico portions should be informative for the general reader.

As an example of the utility of Cannonshot's report, his post #309 shows a deep water crossing at Rock Creek, west of Kremmling, south of Steamboat. His report is from 2010, and things may have changed, but if the deep water crossing is still there, you can read about the easy Highway 134 bypass later on in that post.

Here are the coordinates for your GPS for that exact crossing:

40.057127, -106.640159

You can copy and paste those coordinates into Google Maps and have a look

According to my research so far, it is the biggest obstacle on the route - but again, the ride report is 7 years old.

TIP: Go to post #363 in his report, read it, and scroll up (backwards) - this will give you photos and points of interest in the direction of our ride in June

Most of Colorado just got another 36+ inches of snow in the mountains.

I really want to ride this high passes! Sounds like that may not be looking promising in June...
