Montrose, Sidewinder

Hey Im looking for some info on the Sidewinder trail. Im thinking of riding there next week. Ive heard they have been making it into a loop? The BLM site still shows it as an out and back. Anybody know about the loop? Im guessing it would be around 40- 50 miles as a loop? Legal? any info would be appreciated

It parallels Peach Valley road so you can make it whatever kind of loop you want.

Ride Red Rocks trail heading north, the come back on sidewinder, makes for a nice loop but you'll miss the last few miles of sidewinder unless you want to ride it out and back. I'm free this weekend if you are so inclined, I charge 2 beers for the full tour

That's 3 beers worth of value right there, now at the price of only 2 beers!

Now Greg, you know you are supposed to send all strangers that you never plan to meet in person the other way..North on Sidewinder south on red rocks

Heard anything lately about an endurocross training area out there?

The "real" Mann loop is Amasa, Pritchett, BTR, Flat Pass, Poison Spider, GBR, Rusty Nail, Metal Masher, Gemini, Sovereign, Bovine, Juniper, Enduro, Guy's, Hell and back, half a beer then pass out.
