Gold Belt Tour March 3, 2011 I've seen a few of these; here's another. Just checkin out the back country - not nearly as exciting as a certain Mr. SteveG's rides. Park bike hauler at Red Canyon Park north of Canon City. Ride Gold Belt Tour (Shelf Rd and Phantom Canyon Rd) to Cripple Creek, Victor, Canon City, and return; 67 miles - 2.5 hours wheel time + 2.5 hours rubber-necking and picture taking. http://www.goldbeltbyway.com/ GPX file for those who asked: http://rickramsey.net/gpxfiles1/GoldBeltTour.gpx <-- right-click and save A few snow-packed/icy spots going up and half a dozen more coming down. No traffic to speak of. Chilly between Cripple Creek and Victor (9700') but otherwise a beautiful day. Pictures with no further comments.
