Some Colorado Motorcycle Tours I’ve done

If you’re looking for some great Colorado Motorcycle Touring destinations, let me point you in the right direction. I’ll show you some rides that are a couple hours or a full day and some that are a couple day’s (at least) that will satisfy you needs for saddle time, wind therapy and scenery.

I’ll breakdown some of the places I’ve gone and give you route’s with times, distance’s and stops

Day 3 – Montrose to Golden: 6 h 40 min (346 miles)

This is just a very small sample of the many tours I’ve taken in Colorado. I will show you routes that are close to Denver along the Rocky Mountain Front Range, I’ll show you places Up North, Down South, East and West that will just fill your senses!

Have you ever rode your motorcycle over a 10, 11, 12,000 Ft pass before? I have done many and let me tell you, there is nothing like reaching the summit of one and seeing the view to be had! Ears are popping, the air is thin, and the temperature will be chilled, but you’ll barely be able to pay attention to it because of the raw beauty that will before your eyes! It’s like being on top of the world!

I will take you on rides to the top of Mt. Evans and Pikes Peak that are over 14,000 ft above sea level, and I will take you to the beautiful valleys below so you can experience the vast beauty of Colorado like I do. Well, I’ll do the best I can to make you feel like you’ve been there, but in order to really experience and enjoy Colorado you’re going to just have to come out here and visit!

There is a lot more to come! Check back soon and check back often!

Be Safe, Have Fun and Ride On!

  1. I think it’s a great idea to post routes you enjoy riding. Would be great if others would share their favorite routes too. So many roads in Colorado to explore!

  2. Hey Glenn,

    It is great that you decided to share this information. I am also a big fan of road trips and exploring. If you can also share the highlights of each trip, places, restaurant, etc. that would also be great.
    Keep up the good work.

    1. Rjiath,

    1. Thank you for your comment June! If you are in Colorado and want to go for a ride, there are places that rent motorcycles…I’d love to ride with you guys!

    2. Short Shot you are a great resource. I have enjoyed the rides you have lead. This website will be an awesome resource for me to use.
      Thank you

  3. Showing maps of your rides is a great idea! Listing the roadways you’re riding helps map it out, but posting pics of the route puts it all in perspective as far as how they all connect. Great idea for a site.
