In the summer I’d leave early (around 7:00) to beat the heat and afternoon showers. In the fall you can head out at around 10:00 and make the stop in Las Vegas for lunch.

This loop starts at Einstein Bros Bagels at Central and Tramway. This is a perfect place to meet, Smith’s gas Stations on the corner has free air.

Ride from Creede to Leadville

225 mile ride with breakfast and gas stop in Gunnison

Woke up early and started getting ready. They don’t start serving breakfast at Snowshoe till 7:00. We had the bike packed with everything set to ride right after we ate. The breakfast was cornflakes with a muffin. So we passed on the breakfast and started for Lakecity on highway 149.

Ride to Creede

Albuquerque – Espanola – Creede
July 16, 2010
280 mile ride Albuquerque to Creede with 2 gas stops and breakfast.
 Packed up and hit the road before 7:00. It was still cool, but the sun was in my face all the way to Santa Fe. Took Interstate 25 and 599 bypass to miss Santa Fe to 285. The first part of this ride was just about getting to Espanola.We stopped at Espanoia for gas, then  went to Angelina’s for breakfast. Had the breakfast enchilada with bacon. The breakfast at Angelina’s is good, it has been every time I’ve stopped in.
