The mountain/mining town of Ouray (elevation 7,750 feet) is so high that people say they can only grow rhubarb in their vegetable gardens. Yet columbine sprouts like a weed in sidewalk cracks. A self-proclaimed look-alike for a Swiss hamlet, Ouray is indeed picturesque. But it is also rather noise and dusty, due to a constant flow of Jeep tourists heading west into the Uncompahgre National Forest. Western movie buffs might recognize the valley as the setting for John Wayne’s True Grit of 1969. Most of this 6-by-9-block town is listed as a National Historic District. Take the walking tour of the town before jumping on your bike. Highlights include the Western Hotel, at 220 Seventh Avenue; the onion-domes county courthouse; and Wright's Opera House. Surface: quiet, unpaved road. Things to See: historic town with hot-springs baths, spectacular canyon scenery, section of Uncompahgre River.
