RIDE OVERVIEW

 RIDE OVERVIEW

For 2018 Exit Tours Motorcycle Club will be hosting one 2 Day ADV Tour & Camp in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. 4 Dual Sport Rides. One 5 Day Hot Springs ADV Tour to Hot Springs on the Continental Divide. 1 Singletrack Club Ride.

We work to minimize pavement mileage, maximize scenery, have fun and generally only use paved roads as necessary to tie dirt loops together and access amenities.

Our rides cover routes you cannot put together on a map. If you could put the routes on a map, you couldn’t follow the map. Trail markings in the Rocky Mountains are, even in designated riding areas, often missing, non-existent, outdated, misplaced or confusing.

Chaffee County, Colorado and the Heart of the Rockies and environs should truly be called a ‘Mecca’ for off-road motorcyclist’s.

Mecca  – noun

1) A place that is regarded as the center of an activity or interest.
2) A goal to which adherents of a religious faith or practice should fervently aspire.

The Headwaters and Watersheds of 4 Major American River all start in the Heart of the Rocky Mountains.

The Arkansas River starts to the North in Leadville and Exits the Rocky Mountains to the East through Salida, which means ‘Exit’ in Spanish. The headwaters of the Rio Grande river are the Southern boundary of the County.The Headwaters of the Colorado River are the Western boundary. The Platte River starts to the East of Leadville.

 

There are more 14 thousand foot peaks in Chaffee County than in any other County in the Continental U.S.

There are hundreds of miles of old mining roads, railroad right of ways and singletrack trails in the area. Multiple Mountain Passes.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET STARTED?

A Sense of Adventure and Common Sense.

If you have to ask if you can ride your motorcycle over some high mountain 4×4 pass’s and survive, you probably don’t have the knowledge or skills to do it.

If you have to ask, don’t do it. Even if you have ridden all of the toughest trails in Iowa…

  • Historically the canyons and passes we will travel have provided the only routes through the Rocky Mountains for trains and automobiles.
  • The 2 track provided access for prospecting at Mines and for Logging.
  • The engineering required to get Trains over and through the canyons and passes was the most difficult feat within the entire Continental US Railroad system.
