    Hey guys, I’ll be in San Juan’s this weekend (9/20-9/22) and am looking for help planning some rides. I’m riding solo on a KTM 690 so I’m looking for rides I can do alone or riding buddies for the weekend. This is my first trip to the area so I’m interested in doing the popular passes and routes on this trip. I’ll be coming from Moab and would like some specific details on what trails/routes to hit, what direction to takes them, how to link one to the other, where to stay, etc. Again, if anyone is in the area and would like to ride together, I’m all for it. Thanks for any help!

    HI

    Read welcome to Colorado

    Buy the latitude 40 map of the area

    Sounds like you want to ride the alpine loop ... that loop takes about a day to 1.5 days to ride depending on your skill and site seeing time.

    Enjoy

    Are you camping off the bike or need lodging ideas? Budget or going big?
    That bike is good for all the passes. Skill level?
