The New Project: Bike The Colorado Trail


The wanderlust continues. We've could have gone either way after our global adventure; feel satisfied and go back to way the life was, or keep coming up with new ideas. And yep, you guessed it, we're working on the latter.

Our new project is an ultra-light tour of the Colorado Trail. Chris recently informed me that the gear list is very short and does not include a tent or sleeping bags. Hmmm.

The trail covers 530 miles with 60,000 feet of climbing. I guess it's time to start training camp. We're looking at a July start, so we should have time to get our legs and lungs in shape.

The Colorado Trail starts in Denver and ends in Durango. Elevation ranges from 5,500 feet to a high point of 13,334 feet. A good portion of the trail hovers above 10,000 feet. The trail was completed in 1987 and is a joint project between the Colorado Trail Foundation and USFS.

Stay Tuned...
