    Default High Altitude Member Patch

    On my way back from SpyderFest, I will be stoping in Denver and i'm going to accomplish the task by going to 6 passes over 10,000 feet in one day (May 1). The minimum requirement to get this patch is 5 passes in a calendar year, but I don't live close enough to CO to make several trips.

    Weather depending, would anyone like to join me on this?

    I have 4 days to spare after Spyderfest. I was looking for something fun to do. Maybe 6 Passes would be fun. I'll give it some thought.

    This would be interesting, but I live to far away now. Trail ridge is "interesting road". I lived in Aurora for three years while in the USAF. Lots of great riding around there.

    Due to a change of jobs, I won't be able to go to the Owner's Event. That and visiting friends is why I'm going to be in Colorado on the return trip. I do plan on staying in durango the night of the 2nd though after taking on the Million Dollar Hwy. :-)

    Lived in CO for 8 years and drove Trail Ridge Rd many times, with a pontoon boat behind me.
    A couple things to know: in summer it's busy, it may be closed for weather- even in summer, great pulloffs for photos and nature viewing. Agree it's "interesting" Sounds like fun on the spyder.

    With it being April, there's a good possibility that Pikes Peak could still be closed. That's why I chose these 6 passes, where 5 of them are between 10 and 11K. Better chance of the roads being clear.

    If anyone is truly interested in ryding with me on this route, I will be staying in Denver between the 30th and the 2nd on the way back from SpyderFest.

    Oh, and running the route on the 1st of May. Send me a message on here or a PM.

    Does Pikes Peak count since it isn't a pass?? Our club here in Denver does this every year and it is a lot of fun.

    Yes, any mountain over 14000 feet qualifies. but Pikes Peak and one other are special. Think it's Mt Evans if I remember right.

    a rider can easily cover Kenosha, Hoosier, Loveland, Vail, and Tennesee, and/or Freemont Passes on a nice day ride!

    JT - have you been to the Colorado Spyder Ryders Meet-Up Site ?
    we are going to meet in Colo Sprgs on Apr 6th... 11:15 at Top That Pizza.

    Just to add for the visitors. Pikes Peak & Trail Ridge Rd would likely be CLOSED until Memorial Day weekend. (Same with Independence Pass)

    If you're going from Denver to Durango you can definitely get in your six 10,000+ footers and then some.


    Loveland, Vail, Tennessee, Monarch, Slumgullion, Spring Creek, and Wolf Creek. (7)
    or
    Loveland, Hoosier or Freemont, Monarch, Slumgullion, Spring Creek and Wolf Creek (6)

    OR here's another six pack in one day:
    Loveland, Hoosier, Monarch, Red Mtn, Molas & Coal Bank. (6)

    thanks to all. sorry I haven't followed up. I ran the route as stated last April and received their 10 passes over 10K feet patch in January. (he mails all patches at the end of the riding season). I ended up doing their 6 pack route plus Berthoud in one day, and the next ran the Million Dollar Hwy the next adding Red Mountain, Molas and Coal Bank to make 10. luckily I had my GoPro running cause there is no Pass sign for Red Mountain, that I saw. it was just the county line signs at the pass. All in all it was an awesome ryde, just wish someone could have joined me.

    I'm leaving for Salt Lake on Sunday, but would love to meet up with other Spyder Ryders in Southern Colorado. Will try to make the meet on the 6th.

    I did the Mt. Evans last year after the owner's event in Durango. Pike's Peak was out due to the annual race that weekend. So, I got the 14er patch.

    The mile high club patch is much more desirable and a lot more fun!
