Have Bob Roll, Phil Liggett, and Paul Sherwin inspired you to climb high mountain passes and rip down incredible descents like a "grand prix motor car”? There is no need to travel to Europe for such a road biking experience. Right here in the Rocky Mountains we have spectacular passes surrounded by snowcapped peaks and lush wildflowers. Are you ready for the challenge of five days of mountain passes through the heart of the Colorado Rockies? This road bike tour promises a serious challenge, but with the full support of a Western Spirit team and comfortable places to stay each night, you're going to love it. Our most advanced road tour incorporates several of Colorado's most scenic and historic byways. We start by riding up and over Grand Mesa, east of Grand Junction, Colorado. From here we head to the West Elk Scenic Loop and on to the North Rim of Colorado's newest national park, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Then it's up and over Cottonwood Pass to Buena Vista and the famous Independence Pass into Aspen. Finally, we spin out of Carbondale over McClure Pass to complete the circle. For those ready for a serious effort towards a higher plane of being, this route offers a truly transcendent experience. Up for the challenge?
