Coming to Telluride next week 18th-22nd from Durham NC. I mainly ride XC and wanted to catch up with someone in the area to show me the ropes! I have been riding for about 10yrs and my skill level is pretty good but I have never ridden in the Rockies!:) Hit me up if anyone is available to meet for maybe a half day ride or so?
Also which bike to bring? Hard tail, Full Suspension?
Damn, I'm really jealous of your trip! Wish I could join you... but hopefully, some beta does the trick.
For rides from town, definitely utilize the free Gondola... It's scenic, awesome, and did I mention free!? I'm not sure what your skill level is, but this ride is supposed to be gnarly and very beautiful: mtbproject.com/trail/378376...
