This will be a day to be on the road early. More than 105 miles and 6,000 feet of climbing, including Slumgullion Pass at 11,530 feet. I've ridden this route from Gunnison to Creede, and it was hard! This year we'll be doing it in reverse. Creede sits at 8799 feet, so the good news is the climb over Spring Creek Pass and Slumgullion Pass will entail a lot less climbing than coming from the other side.
