Cruz posted this several months back but I'm re-posting as I think this should be one of our day trips. Chances are there will be traffic so it might take longer than the suggested time but it would be a great way to spend the day, a leisurely 240 miles.
What does everyone think??

Day 2 ride....I cant get the map to come up but heres the gist of it

Telluride
Placerville
Gateway
Whitewater
Montrose
Ridgway
Placerville
Telluride

This route is aprox 265 miles and is north of Telluride, it goes up close to the 70 then comes back down the million dollar highway...maybe someone way smarter than me could pull it up.

Doing this trip would cover the North and the previous days ride would cover the South, be a great mix.
Suggestions, comments, complaints....complaints then take a hike  thefinger thefinger thefinger

I've heard from sources that live in Telluride that it's awesome country !   I think these routes will work just fine !  Seems to cover all the points of interest I've heard about...   pretty much can't go wrong with that scenery !!   icon_thumleft
