For those folks working on the Colorado Beemers Pass Bagger 50, or anyone that wants to find and ride Colorado mountain passes, check http://www.concours.org/co/Colorado-Mountain-Passes.xls for a spreadsheet I'm fine tuning.

What about us poor Fugger's that don't have Excel? Is there a way to view this?

That's an outstanding list of passes. From your list (and a couple others), I've put the passes into Google Earth and GDP formats. Check out this thread, since we've got 3-4 right now on this topic.

Great work!

You could use the free "Excel 2003 Viewer".

For the latest updates, check www.concours.org/co Pass Bagger 50 page. I've completely reformated this page, listing in alphabetical order the 85+ Colorado passes I've visited, rather than showing them each as part of a pass bagging trip. A link to the spreadsheet is at the top of the page.

Here's a photo of Teller County 3, a shortcut from Florrisant to West Creek on CO-67 south of Deckers. It's a non-ADV photo because near the end of a long day to La Salle Pass we decided we wouldn't try to cross the stream to find what might be a long, tough connection to another good stretch of road. Flash floods continue to be a problem following the Hayman forest fire several years ago.

Go here: http://www.openoffice.org/

Another alternative, but it requires you to have a Google account which is free. Go to http://docs.google.com/ and click on "New Spreadsheet" then open the Excel file you want. An advantage to using this system is you can save it and then access it via the web from anywhere in the world on any computer that has WWW access.

altitude and bike performance

speaking of passes, I was in a BMW dealership the other day and the salesman told me that the KLR I was thinking of buying would struggle at higher altitudes because it was not fuel injected. I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this.

Also, I was curious about Colorado and how many truly rideable months there are. I plan on buying the gear and wearing it all the time. Can you stay reasonably warm?

Your questions probably can be answered better in the Riding - Regional Forums - Riockies forum area. A recent addtion (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=240610) shows current riding conditons on Hancock and Tin Cup Passes, so the season varies greatly depending on the altitude of the roads. In short, in my opinion you should wear an Aerostich or similar all the time, and always carry an electric vest and CamelBak. Check the Pass Bagger 50 page on www.concours.org/co for photos of my KLR on a bunch of passes. I thought the performance was plenty adequate everywhere.

Here's the KLR at 12,000+

Thanks for the thoughts, Bishop.

I am actually living in golden, and commute to Highlands Ranch. I was curious about riding at that altitude year-round.
