Rio Grande Trail

Here is a link to a very nice trail in Colorado. It is over 40 miles long (Glenwood to Aspen) and quite scenic. The elevation change is gradual. Anybody that rides ragbrai would have NO problem with this trail. 

I bicycled it last summer, and throughly enjoyed the ride.

That is a nice trail. I used to live in Glenwood. That trail was not there then. It follows the old Colorado Midland RR. When i lived there the valley was not nearly as populated and alot nicer place to live. You can also ride the trail in Glenwood Canyon, it is 18 miles long and follows the Colorado River.

Hey!!! That’s MY trail!!

It cost a million dollars a mile.
Dog bless all the second home owners in the Aspen Area who have to pay taxes but can’t vote.
It is a wonderful wonderful ride, and you can continue on to V***, if you wish – although it’s not 100% bike trail yet
