Fall Colors Ride

On Wednesday we ride to dinner and on Saturday we ride to breakfast. Those and any other rides are coordinated and (sometimes) reported here.

Fall Colors Ride

Here's what I'm thinking for this year's ride. In keeping with the suggestions to return to the origins of this event, and with the name change from 5 Passes, let's go for quality over quantity. This ride only hits 3 passes, but they are some of the best ones I know of. Monitor is in great shape, Ebbetts and Sonora are amazing, and there's a great lunch spot along the way.

Nice route and one we have never done. Only downside is the 400+ miles for some of us non ironbutt types.

You can handle it Gary! Not even half of an Ironbutt, with breaks and lunch. Looks like a nice route.

It's about 340 miles, so only a little longer than some past rides...

Sunday, October 19 is on the calendar. Did a variant of this route (89 back instead of Hwy 4 over Ebbett's)with Ken last Saturday and it was awesome. Weather permitting, I'm in.

Im In. looks like a great ride.
Motorcycles tell us a more useful truth: we are small and exposed, and probably moving too fast for our own good, but that's no reason not to enjoy every minute of the ride. ~ Dave Karlotski
