"Old mining towns (Lake City), even older ghost towns (St. Elmo), and one of the all-time great mountain towns (Crested Butte) highlight the southern half of the Colorado Rockies. The area’s cycling options run the gamut—with an emphasis on pedaling uphill. The routes over Slumgullion Pass and Cottonwood Pass cross the Continental Divide. When you’re done riding, soak in the Mount Princeton Hot Springs near Salida." Read more

"The ride starts at Alpine Park near downtown, then wiggles northwest through a residential neighborhood, before joining State Route 291 a half mile before it crosses the Arkansas River.
