Start in Denver. For a great ride, take Rt. 70 to Loveland Pass to Rt. 91 to Leadville to Rt. 82 to Aspen. Take Rt. 82 to Rt. 133 through Gunnison National Park to Montrose. Go North to Rt. 141 (Make sure you gas up first. There is nothing for miles.) The scenery is just beautiful. Catch Rt. 145 to Telluride Special Town. Call Dave's Mountain Tours (970) 723-9749; it's a great ride on dirt trails through the mountains. Return on Rt. 145 to Rt. 62 to Ridgeway (Rt. 50) to Ouray to Silverton then to Durango on Rt. 550.
