I would say go for it : )

Actually I think going up is slightly easier than down the west side as it's just steep enough that you have modulate the brakes fairly precisely. A small bike isn't a problem but on a big bike you don't want to get going too fast. That said I'd still do it, just be cautious.



Doug I don't remember any wild rides, besides it's not possible in the old grey mare.. wink

It changes, sometimes rocks roll off the side of the hill and sometimes they get crushed into small pieces by the traffic. Here it is different times of different years.

June 2009



July 2010



October 2010



July 2013



Sept. 2015

I did it from 550 over to Ophir on the big GS, no problems. , and I'm nowhere near your talent level.

Good to hear Chris. thumbsup

What I have so far...

Colorado 2017

Sun June 11 Marshall pass to old Monarch on to Pitkin for lunch.

Mon 12 135 to Crested Butte then 12 to 133 up to Marble for some Q.

Tues 13 That road just west of Sargents down to 114 and then that other road down to 149 (Bill knows and he will explain it to me....again) grin Debating Engineer or going around to 550 then on to Silverton.

If Utah gets cut

Wed 14 leave Eureka Lodge and cross Ophir to 145 and up to Last Dollar Rd. Then 62 to 145 to 141 up to Gateway and hopefully make it to the car museum they have before it closes at (3:00 I think) Then on to the Grand Mesa lodge in Grand Mesa.

Thurs 15 open as of now

Fri 16 open as of now

Sat 17 open as of now

Sun 18 open as of now

Mon 19 open as of now but need to be close by truck for an early departure east on Tues.

How's it looking? Suggestions.

Pat
