Ride The Rockies 2009

Glenwood Springs to Glenwood Springs Loop, June 14 - June 19, 2009

Route was Glenwood Springs - Hotchkiss - Gunnison - Salida - Leadville - Aspen - Glenwood Springs. It covered 384 miles and 22,314 feet of climbing. The major climbs were Mc Clure Pass (steep but short), climbing up to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Monarch Pass, and Independence Pass (with a high point of 12,095'). It was a great route and ride this year. Daily route plots and elevation profiles from my Garmin Edge 705 are shown below.  Go to www.ridetherockies.com for more info.
