Looking for summer fun
« on: January 05, 2020, 03:18:29 pm »

I am looking to leave the Texas heat behind this summer and am hoping to find a nice area to ride for a month or so.   Not looking for a route to ride but rather an area (summer rental) to spend a month or so riding about.  Hoping to catch someone from the RM area with some suggestions about places that would be fun to spend some time around. 

Bikes = road, gravel and mtb
Fun = scenic, easy, safe

Hmmmmm -

Northern New Mexico -
Close, but not too many riding options, traffic issues.

Southern Colorado -
Killer rides in the San Juans, killer prices too.

Northern Colorado -
A zillion people crowding every trail and back road.

Southern Wyoming -
Desolate - except for the Snowy Range.

Yellowstone / Grand Teton -
Magnificent but mobbed with millions of tourists.

Montana -
Too far away.


So that leaves the Bighorn Mountains of Northern Wyoming.
Which is where I live - - Buffalo.
Lots of paved and dirt options - low traffic.
Stunning scenery, great camping.
Things to do in Sheridan, Buffalo, and Greybull.
With affordable motel / restaurant prices.

Oh, and did I mention wildflowers in late June?

Beautiful pic!   Thanks!  Kinda looks like a field of Texas blue bonnets. 

I've been around Northern New Mexico and also South Central Colorado.   I also like fly fishing.  You get far enough West, like Montrose or Grand Junction, and its just as hot as Texas. 

Buffalo Wyoming ... makes the list.

Big thanks!
