The Colorado Tour in Review

Day 291
Location: Littleton Homestead

We’ve returned to our home base in Littleton. We’ve got most of the laundry done and we’re getting ready to detail the bikes. The Colorado Tour was awesome and we’re so thankful to all of our friends and family who helped us along the way. A home-cooked meal, a bed, a shuttle, or a honk and wave can make all the difference.

Here are the numbers for the last seven weeks:

Days on the Bike/Road: 42/49
Total Bicycle Miles: 960 (includes singletrack days)
Total Bicycle Time: 100 hours, 10 minutes
Average Speed: 9.6 mph

Biggest Day: No Name to Paonia Reservoir (over McClure Pass), 6 hours, 59 miles
Highest Elevation: Cottonwood Pass (12,126 ft/Continental Divide)

Counties: 14
Mountain Passes: 7
Continental Divide Crossings: 2

Stay tuned for maps…
