I haven't ridden there but thanks for posting up! I'll have to give it a go.

Anyone know why Dave deleted all of his posts?

Did you run into people doing/supporting the Colorado Trail Race?

I rode from the Indian Creek TH over towards Buffalo Creek about 3 weeks ago. I only made it to Top of the World, a thunderstorm threatening turned me around since the burn area is uber exposed. FWIW, it's roughly 50 miles round trip from the parking lot at Indian Creek to the Little Scraggy TH at Buff Creek. The 2011 CTR started today (8/1/11), right Matt?

Out and back right?

I have no idea about the CTR, never heard of it.

BTW, there's a $5 parking fee at Indian Creek, unless you park right across the road from Rampart in the little pulloff before the gate.

It is an out-n-back, although I suppose you could make quasi-loops using roads. Never tried that. The regular round trip is enough of a beat-down climbing to & from South Platte around Bennett Mt that I'm not sure mixing Hwy 67 to Rampart really sounds like much fun when you figure in motorcycles and cars. :-)

The CTR is the Colorado Trail Race. They'll do all 475 miles of it end-to-end in about 4 to 5 days. I think the record is just a few hours over 4 days.

Nope, just solo. They are doing 18+ hours in the saddle.

The roughly 2,500 miles between the Canadian to Mexican borders in just over 2 weeks. As contrast a typical Tour de France covers roughly 2,000~2,200 miles in 3 weeks on pavement. These Divide races are doing it with zero support, on dirt roads and singletrack in one less week.

I am five days away from mountain biking 24.8 miles of singletrack, 75% of which is above 9,500 feet elevation in the Routt National Forest.

Can I complete the ride? We don’t know. Follow my team Legal Action at http://ride4yellow.livestrong.org/ma...1&e=4782010948
