I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
Back on the trail we headed up the Cebolla creek drainage and ran into a heard of cows being moved by some local wrangles and Iím not talking about the Jeep product. It was painful, the cows had no place to go to get off the road and let us by and they were a bit stressed and pooping everywhere! The valley did finally open up enough and we managed to get around, sorry no photos.

It was getting along in the day and was decided to find a place for the night and found a spot in the Los Pinos Pass area and made camp.

We got rained on in the early morning hours a little foreshadowing for the day aheadÖ.


We rolled out and made some breaky under overcast skyís.




More food porn...




It rained on us all day! Some drizzle some full on rain. Were both dressed in Gortex gear so no issue but the roads were degrading somewhat as the day went on. Not really sloppy and snotty but puddles everywhere.


We rolled over Waunita Pass without issue and pictures then down the hill into Pitkin. Another surprising little mountain town, Pitkin was well maintained from my perspective. Not a soul was out and about and the clouds were on the ground the drizzle was heavy. We passed thru town without incident nodding to a couple locals sitting on the front porch at the mercantile store.

On through the clouds and rain to Cumberland Pass without incident but the cold was starting to soak in. As I recall the bike indicated temperatures in the upper 40F and being wet it was starting to wain on us.






Hoping to gain some temperatures by losing altitude we continued on toward Tin Cup, verified the route against the map left Tin Cup and missed the turn having to back track a little. The route turns and follows NF-725 and we blew past it not paying attention.


They have been doing some logging in that area and were in the processes of reworking the road. Work had stopped due to the rain and wet conditions being half plowed. The road was a mess 3Ē of wet loose soil on top of a hard packed surface and we did a lot of paddling for the next hour until we got passed it and back onto Pass Creek road.


At that point we were done and beat feet to Buena Vista for some much needed substance! I had no problem with the freeze dried food we had been existing on for the last few days but I was always hungry! Always Hungry!!!! It was then that we decided we were done, after checking the weather forecast which indicating more of the same for the next 3 days we checked out of the CoBDR for this year and jetted back to Denver in the rain. Did over 800 miles in 3 days and I averaged 64MPG.

Very awesome Jerdog. Last time I was rolling through colorado I went through a state park north of Rifle. 90ish miles of thick gravel Your chosen roads look alot more enjoyable. My lady just moved to Co Springs... where exactly are these routes in relation to that area of colorado? also: dont you just love that air filter spot? lol. Oh! and try the Blueberry morning meal from the same company.. its actually pretty damn good.

This route runs north and south in the western part of the state roughly from Telluride to Steamboat Springs.
