Dumont to Loveland Pass: One of the most beautiful rides in the world

Gary rides the last big corner to the top of Loveland Pass. It's about 23 miles, over 3000 feet of climbing on roads with no traffic. Sections are on bike trails in beautiful forests. It's cool and fresh, whereas Denver can be 96 degrees, it's in the 60ies from Silver Plume to the top. This can be done in 2 hours, with moderate fitness. Riding it in under two hours starts to get interesting.
