This will be a six day/five night ride of 1850 miles.  We will conquer two “Fourteeners”, Pikes Peak and Mount Evans. We will also ride through some beautiful country and on some great roads in Colorado.  As always, we have to get through West Texas and New Mexico first...

We will need to make reservations to ride to the top of Pikes Peak and Mount Evans.

Mount Evans tickets
Buy a timed access pass for 8:00-10:00 for each peak. The pass for Mount Evans won't be available till 7/23 Also, you will need to create an account on Recreation.gov to buy a ticket.

We will have some longer mile days on the way there and back so that we can spend more time on the mountains.  Please check the Itinerary below.
