2008 Rampart Range to Fairplay and back!

Jordan, Tim and the Adventure Hermit: A weekend ride from Denver down to Sedalia where we rode down Rampart Range Road to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. We then hopped on pavement over past the world famous Broadmoor Hotel and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We then got back on dirt and traveled the length of Gold Camp Road down to Victor, before hitting pavement and heading up to Fairplay.

On our way home, we rode over Weston Pass through the historic town of Leadville. We crossed over Tennessee Pass before heading offroad again up to the unmarked Ptarmigan Pass (a sign has again been added). We then head up the "official road of a stream that evenutally crosses over and brings you back up and over Shrine Pass before dropping you off at Vail Pass (not shown this time).

Tim had to take off so Jordan and I took the long way home via Loveland Pass before simply hopping on I70 to finish out our ride home.

A great weekend!
