San Juan Mountains Classic Tour
Again, we have bitten off a seemly hard core tour route, but doing it in a relaxed way that will accommodate both the conditioned recreational rider as well as the more ambitious cyclist. This tour travels the majority of the San Juan Skyway in southwestern Colorado on mostly low traffic roads with grades of 6% or less with adequate ride able shoulders not withstanding a few exceptions. It is an amazing scenic loop and parts of it are referred to as the American Alps. Although quite mountainous, the tour is designed to assist you in adjusting to the altitude with a relatively easy first day and with gradual mileage the second day. We will average 36 - 41 miles a day ranging from as much as 50 miles the 4th day and as little as 23 miles the 5th day. But don�t let the 23 mile day fool you; this is the crux of the tour with over 3300 ft of elevation gain with a narrow twisting road that will take your breath away. As customary for Dakota Bike Tours, we stay in unique places such as Mesa Verde National Park, and in quaint towns and villages like Rico, Telluride, Ouray and Silverton, all mining towns with a rich history. This tour fits the mold of the �Relaxed Adventure Company� and will exceed your expectations. As always, you can ride extra miles, or you can use our NO-SHAME VAN Policy and get a breather anytime you want.
