I’ve released my first draft of Segment #5 of the Front Range bikepacking guide to the CO 14ers:

Tour 14er Front Range Segment 5
Tour 14er Front Range Segment 5

Segment #5 takes you from the East Longs Peak TH back to the beginning in Golden, CO via Lyons + Boulder, CO. And with this last segment, the first pass at the entire Front Range bikepacking route is done!

The route statistics look a little like this:

  • MTB Narrative:
    • 380 miles
    • 39,200′ elevation gain/loss
  • Road Narrative:
    • 350 miles
    • 29,003′ elevation gain/loss
  • Hiking:
    • 47.62 miles
    • 18,552′ elevation gain/loss

Total mileage: 428 miles; total elevation gain/loss: 47,555′

These stats are and are actually close to riding the entire Colorado Trail (526.16 miles, 45,555′ elevation gain). I can’t wait to start on the second pass of this route narrative, and move onto the other ranges!
