Tour-c-klle

Sooo since the sun came out briefly and some hamme-a-lopes have neva' stopped ridin' bikes.. the StOMpArillaZ summer bike ideas are startin' to roll in.. which is nice.. and here are some ideas to start floatin' around in yer friendly lil' head... Yaya is quite intent on doing one particular big ol' tour...

>> 'bonedale to durangolope onroad and off... This idea had been floated last year for 4th of july, not sure when it'll happen butbut.. Ideally the short bus will be in action as the support vehicle.. carrying extra tires for those who wanna ride the same bike on road and off, niner heads probably,, and both mountain and road bikes for others.. and we'll ride road for some sections and off road for others ending up on the colorado trail down in to d-town.. there will ideally be a campout high up in the san juans partying with the durango crew.. so who's in and who has any date ideas? Off road from bonedale to Paonia, stay at Pa's place.. On road from there to Ouray, and off road from their to D-town...

>> Next one is one I've thought about ever since going to the Mishawaka music venue in the Poudre canyon above Ft. Collins to see MMW.. The Rabbit ears pass, accessed from Steamboat, descend s 60 some odd miles at a ridiculously gradual and beautiful grade down to the venue.. so coincidng with a delightful music show, we'll pre camp party on top of teh pass and then cruise on tall bikes, cruisers, xtra cycles, longboards, and most certianly rollerblades all the way down the hill to the vennue for the show.. date to be decided by the band.. whooooooooo

>> Curious to see ifthe Durango crew is doing their rattle can tour again, cruising around co. early season on a bunch o rat bikes, campin' out and f-in' off.. that could be fun to hook hoook..

>> The stompa century the day before independence pass opens... more boomboxes, who wants to do it on xtra cycles?

>> and an as yet undecided big CO tour -- probably on the niner so on road and off, and probably up through the flat tops and things maybe loopin'. aaanyway still thinkin'' any ideas?

So in case you were wondering I'm far more inclinationalized given that this looks to be my last summer in ol' Co. for a while..soo aaanyway

I gather that neither Yale U nor HUnter C had the COURTESY to institutionalize themselves in the great state of CO? ...what the hell is there to do in New Haven anyway? (not so much a rhetorical question, as I've never been there) I suppose one can ride a bike anywhere.
So, ridin bikes, yes... I hear tell of a ride in CB called RenoFlagBearDeadman that could be one of the best. Maybe find out for ourselves.
San Rafael Schwell is not technically in CO, or is it? The 5 Mi of Hell is NOT calling my name...
Howz about the CO Trail from Leadville to Durango? Tame?
Or we could pull a Butch Cassidy: Rabobank in Telluride and flee to Moab. But why would Stompazx do that?
