Steamboat to landers w/o rabbit ears pass
« on: June 16, 2014, 11:47:28 pm »
I am riding great parks South.  Ending in Steamboat and thinking that I can continue to trans America...  Is there a road route to landers / rawlins wy...  From Steamboat that wouldn't include me heading back up rabbit ears pass?

Only one real paved route.  Head west to Craig, CO, north to I-80, east to Rawlins (legal to ride on I-80 here) totaling 159 miles.

While you specifically requested paved, you might consider some unpaved options such as heading north on CR-129 to WY-70 east to Encampment north to I-80 west to Rawlins totaling 158 miles of which 28 are unpaved but decent in dry weather.  With a decent touring tire (not a thin racing tire), you would be fine.  Second route is much more scenic.  A third option is follow the Great Divide for 128 miles of which 58 are decent unpaved roads.  Most scenic.  Again, with a 32-35mm touring tire, you would be fine.
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!
John
