You will be in great condition with all the training you are doing to get in shape for your trip!
You can go light because you don’t need to bring the kitchen sink. We even have one guy, the ultimate minimalist, who has ridden the routes about nine times and goes out with a whopping total of five pounds of gear, no joke!
You will come home with memories and stories of a lifetime.
Our 5 day / 4 night bike rides follow the same route, starting in either Telluride or Durango, but finish before descending into the Utah sections. The shorter Telluride route ends in Gateway and the shorter Durango route ends in Paradox. Although you miss out on two great days, these shorter routes are perfect for those who must fit their adventures into a standard week-long vacation.
Durango to Paradox and Telluride to Gateway... your entire trip in less than a week!
