4-Day (Colorado BDR-South) Ride

This 4-Day, 3-Night ride extends south from Buena Vista, following along our favorite sections of the epic Colorado BDR route. This route is primarily off-road, and covers rocky, steep terrain that can be challenging for some riders on full sized ADV bikes, but is less challenging on street-legal enduro bikes like our Husqvarna 501s (available for rent).  

Leaving Buena Vista, we quickly encounter freshly paved winding roads up Cottonwood pass, stopping at the summit to take in incredible 360 degree mountain views. Upon our decent, we will pass by Taylor Reservoir and make a transition from asphalt to dirt. A combination of gravel and jeep roads will lead us thru the historic and infamous mining towns of Tincup and then Pitkin, where we will stop in the towns general store/grill for a memorable trailside lunch. From Pitkin, we may encounter a few easy water crossings as we make our way over Los Pinos Pass (10,508’) and into our destination for the night – Lake City, CO.  

After a light breakfast in Lake City, we will begin what we consider to be the best day of riding on our tour. The day will be packed with stunning scenery, historic ghost towns, and ample opportunity to view Rocky Mountain wildlife as we traverse Cinnamon Pass, California pass – (13,222 Feet!), and Red Mountain pass in route to our night’s destination, Ouray, Colorado. Ouray is known as the “Gem of the Rockies”, Guests have the option to spend the evening exploring the vibrant and historic downtown area, hiking the incredibly scenic box canon falls, or even riding out and back on the million-dollar highway before we re-group for dinner.  

After a restful night in Ouray, we will depart in route to our next destination of Cimarron, CO. Our route will take us over the unpaved Owl Creek Pass. After a picknick lunch provided by our chase vehicle, we will continue our journey on to the small mountain town of Cimmaron, CO. Here, we will spend the last night of our trip in a relaxing and rustic atmosphere, sharing stories, beers and planning for the next adventure!  

The final day of our trip offers options for our return route to Buena Vista, A road based route which takes us past the Blue Mesa reservoir, thru Gunnison and over Monarch pass. Or, a more dirt oriented route that would re-trace some of our original route down to Ouray.
