A) A little place called Aspen.
Distance: 204 mi
If you have a couple of days I would recommend heading to Aspen. The food is great most places have outside seating areas. You can hike up in the mountains,or just take the cable cars up and back down. If you like the outdoors this is for you.
B) Arches National Park to Aspen, CO
Distance: 258 mi
This was day 15 of our tour of the American west. We left Arches National Park in the morning and got back on I-70 toward Grand Junction and eventually Glenwood Springs. Somewhere near Glenwood Springs the skies started to get really dark and eventually...
C) Arkansas River
Distance: 58 mi
US 50 runs up the Arkansas River Valley from Canon City to Salida. Portions of the route are more canyon than valley. Lots of curves make this ride more interesting. This stretch of the Arkansas is where Christo, the artist famous for wrapping entire ...
D) Around The Mountains
Distance: 71 mi
This ride starts in Golden, CO and take you up through the back way up towards Evergreen, CO and down towards Fairplay, CO then back into Denver. If you're not use to twisties beware.
E) Bear Country
Distance: 429 mi
We road up to Rapid City to go see Bear Country USA. Turns out you drive through the park and we couldn't ride our motorcycles so we had to go rent a car. However the ride from Colorado to South Dakota was great. I wouldn't attempt it at night due to the ...
F) Berthoud Pass
Distance: 24 mi
US 40 branches off from I-70 at Empire, running up over Berthoud Pass to Winter Park. The pass is full of turns and twists. There are three motorcycle-accessible campgrounds along the way (Mizpah, Idlewild, and Robbers Roost), as well as several trailh...
G) Berthoud Pass
Distance: 24 mi
This motorcycle ride begins at 8,600 feet in elevation at Empire, climbs to 11,300 feet as you cross Berthoud Pass and drops back to 9,200 feet as you enter Winter Park. This is a quick little ride that offers a lot of fun. The ride begins in Empire, ...
H) Big Thompson Canyon
Distance: 30 mi
The direct route between Estes Park and Loveland takes you on US 34 through Big Thompson Canyon. This spectacular canyon has a history. In 1976, after a week of rain saturated the ground, a huge storm up around Estes Park unleashed a flood that killed mor...
I) Boulder Canyon
Distance: 29 mi
This motorcycle ride through Boulder Canyon begins at 6,200 feet in elevation at Nederland, peaks at 8,670 feet in elevation and then descends back down to 5,400 feet elevation as it enters Boulder. This ride is a blast early in the season and a lot of...
J) Clear Creek Canyon
Distance: 49 mi
This motorcycle ride begins at 5,750 feet elevation in Golden, Colorado and climbs to 9,400 feet elevation at the turnoff to Golden Gate Canyon. From there, it gradually descends to 6,200 feet at US Highway 93 south of Boulder. It begins by sweeping ...
K) Colorado 65 across Grand Mesa
Distance: 75 mi
The Grand Mesa rises to the east of Grand Junction, with the Grand Valley to its south. A ride across the mesa can take off from I-70 either at De Beque, via the De Beque Cutoff Road or a little further west, where Colorado 65 meets Interstate 70. Gran...
L) Colorado 92 Hotchkiss to Blue Mesa Reservoir
Distance: 52 mi
CO 92 winds through varied country between Hotchkiss and the point where it meets US 50 at the Blue Mesa Reservoir. In Crawford you pass the one-time biker-friendly restaurant run by Joe Cocker’s wife. South of Crawford the road runs along the north ...
M) Colorado Highway 135 to Crested Butte
Distance: 28 mi
Crested Butte used to be another of those mountain towns that make Colorado so interesting and picturesque. The old downtown area still is, although it is now more of a Disney-style tourist downtown. Meanwhile, the rest of the area has been built up so in...
N) Colorado Highway 67 and Highway 126
Distance: 42 mi
The run from US 285 at Pine Junction south on Colorado 126 to Deckers and on to Woodland Park on Colorado 67 is a favorite for riders in the area. For one thing, the Bucksnort Saloon, just outside of Pine in the tiny community of Sphinx Park, is a favorit...
O) Cottonwood Pass and Taylor Canyon
Distance: 58 mi
Taylor Canyon and Cottonwood Pass are really two separate stretches of road but one leads to the other, so it makes sense to consider them together. Taylor Canyon is paved and makes for great riding. The road up the east side of Cottonwood Pass is also pa...
P) Crested Butte and Kebler Pass
Distance: 31 mi
If you are game for a decent gravel road, take Gunnison County Road 12 over Kebler Pass. CR Road 12 meets up with CO 133 as it comes down from McClure Pass toward Hotchkiss. Again, there is nothing all that interesting along CO 135 between Gunnison and Cr...
Q) Cuchara Pass
Distance: 69 mi
Coming up into Colorado from New Mexico over Raton Pass, the first opportunity you’ll have to ride a good, windy, mountain road is Cuchara Pass on CO 12. Going westward and then north, CO 12 runs from Trinidad up to La Veta and is known as the Highway o...
R) Cumbres and La Manga Passes
Distance: 49 mi
New Mexico/Colorado 17 runs from Chama, NM, over Cumbres Pass and La Manga Pass to reach Antonito, CO. Although you're into flat sagebrush country by the time you reach Antonito, the bulk of this road is very scenic. Coming out of Chama the road runs a...
S) Deer Creek Canyon
Distance: 27 mi
This motorcycle ride begins at 5500 feet in elevation near Chatfield Reservoir, climbs to over 8500 feet as you pass James Q Newton Park in Aspen Park, and descends steadily back into Lakewood, Colorado. This ride is an absolute blast and is close enou...

Distance: 759 mi
This was a 3 day, 2 night tour we did over Labor Day 2011. We left Denver on Saturday morning then rode to Gunnison and camped on the Blue Mesa Reservoir at the Stevens Creek campground. On Sunday we rode to the north rim of the Black Canyon of the ...
