Gravel Ride Up Boreas Pass

June 23, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

This is a beautiful and historic route that follows the railroad grade over Boreas Pass.  We start out just above Breckenridge and go over the pass toward Como.  Boreas Pass Road is unpaved and can be rough and rocky making this ride suitable for Gravel/CX bikes or Mountain Bikes. You will likely be very unhappy bringing a road bike with 25mm tires.

The starting point is the parking area for the Boreas Pass Trailhead https://goo.gl/maps/D7YoN6b8ZEL2 at the end of the winter access road. The parking area is just beyond a residential section so please be respectful of private property.

Ride with GPS map shows a 27.2 mile route with 2580 vertical. No services are available along the ride so we need to be self sufficient with drinks, food, rain gear etc.  We return to the cars to dust off the bikes, maybe have lunch in Breckenridge and head home. Thanks to Dave Nelson for suggesting and leading this ride.
