Re: Colorado....again

Google map links added in post 17 (hopefully)

Hotels

Raton
Quality Inn. Plenty of room for truck and trailer. Wasn't messed with while we were away. As a matter of fact, Richard left his heated insoles on the ground beside the truck...still there when we got back. Recommend
$86 going, $77 coming back

Gunnison
ABC hotel. Mom and pop in the middle of town. Recommend.
$89

Cortez
Econo Lodge. Recommend.
$82

Craig
Clarion Inn. Recommend
$80

Buena Vista
Super 8. Recommend sort of. Most expensive place and also the least nice. Not a dump, just not as nice as the others. I'll look for something else next time.
$118

Except for the ABC in Gunnison, all reservations were made online the morning of the stay using an AARP discount. I called the ABC direct as I have stayed there twice before.
All prices are before taxes.

Great book. I have a copy and refer to it for every trip to Colorado. Carried it with me this time but didn't need it.

Farson used to have videos posted of most of the rides in the book. Couldn't find them this time,guess he took them down.

Re: Colorado....again

I finished up two weeks of riding in nw Colorado today , packing for the trip home this afternoon . Prolly a thousand miles off road and about the same on pavement . Today I saw people off road , but I did ride thru a off road riding area and it is Sunday . The rest of the time maybe one rancher a day and a few people in dinosaur national monument . Did pass a couple hunter camps too but this was my best Colorado trip ever , I'll never go to crowded Colorado again other than to get thru it to the good stuff .

Re: Colorado....again

Found this while looking at tracks from my DeLorme. Appears we hit a lot of the good stuff.
We missed 149, RRNP, and the park near Grand Junction. Just ran out of time.

Re: Colorado....again

For maps ... Butler maps! They do the maps for the CycleWorld rally in Gunnison and are great! Also, visit the local bike shops, like the Husky dealership on the West side of Gunnison, and ask for rec maps. These will show single track. While in the bike shop, you can purchase a Colorado permit to run the single track. I think latitude40maps does the local detail maps. When we ride the area a big day is like 170 miles. Too much dirt and too many stops to smell the roses to plan longer rides. If you want to camp, then look up dispersed camping and figure that into your stops. Lots and lots of camping opportunities.

Ok, pulled my rec map and here is the link to Latitude40 maps for Colorado.
