Routes / Ft. Collins CO to Curt Gowdy WY
« on: April 22, 2018, 10:46:15 pm »
Has anyone biked a route from Ft. Collins to Curt Gowdy state park WY?
We are planning to make the trip there on a Saturday and return on Sunday.  We will camp at the park. 
Google Maps routes us through Soapstone Prarie Natural Area.  Dirt roads?  Goatheads?
Any info would be helpful.

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?

Gear Talk / Cassette 11x32,34,36? With 50x34 crankset
« on: May 08, 2014, 10:15:37 pm »
Hello.   I'm planning Boulder Co to seaside via  Missoula starting June 15.

I have a charge filter hi 2012 cross bike that I have used for weekend self support trips.   It has 11x28 and standard compact crankset 50x34.   

Reading through past forum post fear and uncertainty have me in their relentless and expensive grips now.  From what I gather in this forum I need at least an 11 by 32.   @ my LBS I was offered a mtn cassette anywhere 11x32,34,36.    Thoughts?

FYI : On my past trips with bike set as it is I did a loop in North Colorado Rockies.   Stagecoach sp  to Gore pass (35miles) to top of Rabbit Ears Pass (30 miles) from South heading north on hwy 40 then 25 back to Stagecoach.    Personally the descent from Rabbit Ears was more taxing than ascending (as im not sure my verdict on 160mm mechanical disc brakes)

Gear Talk / Saddle Suggestion other than Brooks
« on: May 08, 2014, 12:04:27 am »

Any suggestion for a saddle that doesn't have to be Brooks?

Also, as this will be my first long tour, what are signs that the seat I have won't work? 


I'm planning on connecting part of the Great Parks South to TransAM.  Currently, I'm dreaming that I would like to finishing GP So. in Steamboat and continue up to Rawlins to connect with TransAM.  Otherwise, I'd have to cut out of GP So. at

Is the section of Great Divide between Silverthorne, CO & Rawlins, WY - Road Friendly? 

 I'll be travelling light (less than 30 # gear) and on a cylcocross / commuter steel  frame with 700x28 road tires.
