Well, there are so many things to ride and see in both areas. Nothing "tour" wise that
I am aware of, a lot of charity rides, but nothing that hits all the areas that you are looking at.
I suggest riding out up through Farmington, Ship Rock, Four Corners into Durango.
Take 550 out of Durango and go over Red Mountain Pass, it is awesome on a bike, down
into Ouray, (stop for an ice climb or a hot dip in the hot springs there), head out to Montrose,
Take US 50 East into Gunnison and over Monarch Pass. (if you are interested in Ghost Towns,
this stretch has a ton of them, suggest you pick up a guidebook on this), into Salida.
I would take 285 North and run into US24 near Buena Vista, (if you are up for rafting, the
Arkansas River along this stretch is the best in Colorado, a lot of great guided trips here)
Take 24 into Leadville and stay here, so much history in this area, Visit Camp Hale north of Leadville,
a WW2 Training camp for the 10th Mtn Division.
From here, you can take Hwy 91 into Copper Mountain, which hits I-70, Great Snowmobiliing in this
area around old mining roads. Take I - 70 into Dillon area, get off US Hwy 6 and head up over the
Continental Divide - it is an awesome site to be on top of the world on a two lane road.
As you come down the mountain past the ski areas, you have to get back on I-70 a bit, but
can get off at Bakerville, back onto Hwy 6 and head down the mountains into old mining towns
such as Silver Plume, Georgetown, Idaho Springs which have musuems, trains, great food, and
beauty to see. US Hwy 6 runs into Hwy 40 and take Hwy 40 as much as you can as you come
down the Mountain. You eventually have to get back on I-70 here and there.
As you head down on I-70, something cool to see is Buffalo Bill's grave near Lookout mountain.
You can take Lookout Mtn Road all the way down with views to die for into Golden, CO - home of
Coors where a great brew tour is available. Keep following US 40 and take it into Denver, it turns
into Colfax Avenue, and still one of the longest main streets in America.
From Denver south back to Abq - I will email this at a later date.
