So August 31st looks like the best date for most. If everyone is ok with the route I will be posing an final update of time and meet up areas on Monday. Otherwise post your opinion of the planned route above, if it looks good or any changes you would like to make.

Here is another idea. I admit it is a bit of a stretch but I think it would be a fun way to end the summer. Let’s have our own scenic drive through Colorado’s mountains and have a hill climb to the top of one of our 14teeners, Pikes Peak, and pose for a 1addicts photo op.

So here is my sales pitch and the purposed route.
Attachment 886935
Attachment 886936
Meet up at Red Rocks in Morrison. Head south on highway 285. Take a slight detour onto a small climb to pretty views and empty (no bikers) twisty foothills roads, Turkey Creek Road to Pleasant Park Road. Join back up shortly with highway 285 to cut off towards the springs Co Road 126/Pine Valley Road - Highway 67 for our long stint of the drive (50 miles). 2 hrs into our journey we hit Woodland Park for possible lunch and fuel as the next stop is 14,000 feet up. Climb up Pikes Peak highway to the top of Colorado for a photo op and show Stelvio’s Pass who’s boss (yah right). Pikes Peak Highway is a toll road of $12 per person, there is a printable coupon (http://www.springsgov.com/SIB/files/...upon%20Big.gif) for $2 off.
Attachment 886937
Then highway 24 to I-25 back to Denver. Total round trip is looking at somewhere between 6 hrs including lunch.

I am thinking this mega day trip could happen Sunday August 25th or Saturday August 31st. Let me know your thoughts and dates
Let’s keep to the main plan. Meet up at Red Rocks Amphitheatre Upper South Parking Lot at 9:00 am and keep to the route as listed above and try to be in Woodland park by noon, and the climb to Pikes Peak from there after lunch.

So that's the plan meet up at 9:00 am Saturday August 31st Red Rocks Amphitheatre Upper South Parking Lot.

Ok, so I haven't travelled that route... I assume it's fully paved? I know some people are anal about that, so I want to be able to tell them in advance.

Hope you don't mind if some 6 series or 2002's crash the party!

Here's some pics from today's drive. What a great day aside from the rain, the TERRIBLE Mustang driver going down Pike's Peak and the awful traffic on I-25 on the way home. Either way here's some of the better shots I have. Looking forward to seeing some of the others taken today.

Great shots, Glad you were able to get such good images!

I really like that photo stop on the way down (plus we didn't have to stay behind that Mustang-- but how the F did we run into him back at the lake?

That's why I had to blow by him going down, enough was enough (hope you guys ignored the plume of smoke from my leaky valve guide seals!).


Here's my collection which turned out decent for what I was using.

Wow, those turned out to be some great shots at the switchback location. Aside from the traffic on the drive back, yesterday was a load of fun.
