Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heaven on two wheels. The weather is good, the mountains are high, and the singletrack is beyond compare. Southwest Colorado is the place where you'll find alpine hill climbs, desert loops, and technical challenges in some of the nation's most spectacular settings. So get on your bike and ride.Cyclist and author Robert Hurst outlines more than seventy rides ranging from the San Miguel River Ramble to grueling Engineer Pass. He also adds his own tidbits about the region's history, wildlife, and weather that make this more than just a trail guide. Look for information on the Log Chutes, Devil Mountain, and Galloping Goose. Climb to the dizzying alpine heights of Imogene, Windy, or Molas Passes. Or, plummet down Hermosa Creek, Old Lime Creek Road, or Haflin Canyon.Also included: restaurants and bike shops; relief maps and elevations profiles; more than eighty photographs; tips on riding, trip preparation, and bicycle maintenance.(6 x 9, 256 pages, b&w photos, maps)
