A ride you will not soon forget, this extended cycling trip is not for the faint-of-heart or the weak-of-leg. You might call it the "Ironman" route of the backcountry biking in the Canadian Rockies. It is a very long and difficult ride suitable for strong, well-prepared cyclists. You must get an early start and have dry weather. The route is a combination of five different trails that enable you to circle around a group of front range peaks including Mount Burns, Bluerock Mountain and Mount Rose.
