The Silver Road bike trip follows the historic wagon road that linked the silver mining towns of Georgetown and Grant is now one of Colorado's most spectacular scenic byways. Just as the traverse over Guanella Pass challenged the miners of the 1800's, you will experience everything from beautifully paved roads, long cruising descents and amazing scenery to steep, challenging climbs, high altitudes and sections of graded dirt roads( 6 miles total). Your journey will take you over 11,700 ft. Guanella Pass, not once but twice.

Road bikes only please be able to do this trip in around four hours, ride at your own pace and regroup along the way. Bring an extra layer in add to food water and tire repair stuff.
