Turning tire tread into miles

Off to Steamboat Springs Colorado for a ride. Weather looking great and destination is off season! Riding to Rangly Colorado to Meeker up through Craig then out to Steamboat. Overnight then down to Wolcott across to Carbondale out to Redstone up through Delta and home.

Sounds like a fun trip. How long do you think the whole thing is going to take you?

Hopefully you can post some pictures of your trip up afterwards.

Cheers!

Wonder how many miles overall this trip is going to be for you? You;ll have to use your trip odometer to figure it out.

Two to three sets per year. I get about 6000 miles on the Avon Cobras, mostly because I am usually two up and loaded for a trip. So I am heavy and it is hot in western Colorado.

Two to three sets wow. But I bet every bit is worth it. Do you have any other trips planned?
