Looks like a Death Loop may be on tap for Saturday morning. Weather is looking so-so but I have some takers: Shawn and Kiviok. Let's do it I say. Rolling out at 4am from Dolores and riding clockwise. 236 miles and who knows how much climbing, 20K!?!? Anyone know? This ride follows the San Juan Scenic byway from Rico to Telluride, Ridgeway, through Ouray, over Red Mtn. Pass to Silverton. On to Durango, Mancos and back to Dolores. I'm thinking 16 hours on a geared road bike at 15 mph. Sounds fun, huh?!?!? Most of the ride is at 8k or more.
