    Good Lord - now that's a ride report! And I think that is worthy of the term "epic." :thumbsup:

    Wonderful... Monarch is on my list. I'm hoping the weather holds into October, as this month is officially shot. :(

    Thanks, y'all!

    Mikie, it's all about weathering lost wages. Loving a stripped-down life helps : )

    Rox, it's in the name of research...I do the recon, she misses the bad parts later!

    MCB2K, October will be unlikely for MC at nearly 12,000', but there will still be loads of prime goods around the area. One good dump will shut the high country down. But...for every area going out of season, another comes in :thumbsup:


    Every time I go to Colorado, I leave a chunk of my heart behind. The people are generally fantastic, and the developed outdoor culture is enviable. New trails are going in everywhere. Governments are hip to the benefits. Trail signage, forest access/road signage, trail and road maintenance, camping...CO is on the ball. I stayed at Salida East on the Arkansas River three nights for free, and slid right into a spot there at the height of the holiday weekend. Ditto Crested Butte; loads of prime camping up Gothic Road and elsewhere. As a MTBer I feel more legit in CO and less like some yahoo trying to get away with something in the BC. Too many good areas to mention or thoroughly ride in one trip. Make a plan and send it...come back with a good story and beta for the rest of us! Woohoo, mountain biking!

    And I thought your Great Divide on the tandem was the gold standard for rides and reports... I'll read this one 100 times.

    High quality! Awesome photos, great narration...inspiring all around. I'm totally impressed the guy hiked/fished the CT, too. My kinda people. Thanks for the share, bro.

    Doing it supported, riding with a light load, would be a spectacularly enjoyable method of bagging the CT. Unsupported and camping out is incredible in its own right, but a lighter load and nightly reprieves would just make you ferocious and rip everything in sight every day. Damn, I would ride on the CT every year if I could. If I disappear, you know where to find me...rocky mountain high.
