Mountain Biking the Colorado Trail
« on: June 09, 2010, 09:02:51 pm »
I would like to mountain bike the Colorado Trail in its' entirety next summer. 

I am a seasoned road tourer, but not single track touring.

I have questions about gear, equipment, food/water planning, and advice for traveling light but smart.

Is there someone who has done the CT that would be willing to correspond with me?

Thanks!

Though not specific to the Colorado Trail, you might want to read Aaron Teasdale's article on Ultralight Touring for some suggestions.
