Here's a ride report of a couple of nice roads to ride if you're in Colorado.

The first part is CO69 which allows you some great views of the eastern side of part of the Sangre de Cristo Range of mountains in southern Colorado.

The second part is one of my favorite roads to ride, Skyline Drive, located near Cañon City, CO. A narrow paved road, perched on top of a narrow ridge, high above a valley....what more could you ask for?

Here's a link to the full ride report and all the pictures. LINK

A couple of teaser pictures for you:
