In Search of the Great Sandwich

When I was out riding the Tour Divide, my article about doing a motorcycle ride through the Poudre Canyon came out in Fort Collins Now (Wednesday, June 18, 2008). You can download the article (PDF, 606 KB) or view it online on FCN’s website.

It reminds me about how I was thinking during the Tour Divide that the next time I decide to do a cross-country trip somewhere in the world, I think I’ll do it on a vehicle that has more than the measly 1/3 horsepower that my legs can provide.

View of the Front Range and the snow-capped mountains from Wellington.Now in Red Feather Lakes, at the Shambala Mountain Resort."Fences, Barns & Such" in Red Feather Lakes.Lake Ramona.When I planned this trip, I didn't realize CR-162 (Manhattan Rd) would be all dirt & gravel!Despite not being a dual-sport motorbike, Boo did fine here...... but was happy to get back on pavement, especially through the gorgeous Poudre Canyon.There were sweeping curves galore in the Poudre Canyon and virtually no traffic.  An excellent ride!
