Explosions of multi-hued wildflowers, alpine vistas, passes exceeding 12,000 feet in elevation, and iconic Colorado mountain towns — this tour has them all. We’ll start in Summit County’s Frisco, embarking on a counterclockwise loop that takes in Hot Sulphur Springs, North Park, Steamboat Springs, Rancho del Rio, Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and Leadville.
We’ve arranged for you to enjoy layover days in a pair of North America’s premier recreation meccas, Steamboat Springs and Aspen. We’ll summit a total of four high-mountain passes — Willow Creek, Rabbit Ears, Independence, and Fremont — and visit hot springs in two towns along the way. Though we’ll camp most nights and share in the cooking and other group duties, the Adventure Cycling van will be there to do the heavy lifting, permitting us to tackle the hills and valleys almost load-free.
