Looking for riding partner for Colorado Trail early August

Hello, I am planing to ride the Colorado trail in early August from Denver to Durango. Would be nice to have some company if anyone out there is interested in joining me. Thinking I will take 10-14 days and enjoy the scenery.
thanks, Wyndham

Hi,

Got a festering interest to walk the trail. Not balanced/quick enough on two wheels to mtb it. Hope you find a riding partner.

Ran across this excellent set of pics, just in case you haven't seen them, or for anyone else wanting to explore the possibility of riding or walking the trail who reads this.

May take longer

I'm sure you know this, but the Colorado Trail is a very, very difficult singletrack route. I "rode" it last summer, and found it really not very well suited to a bicycle. I took 20 days, working hard at it every day. I expect I walked more than 100 miles of the 500+ miles of the trail. My rig was a bikepacking setup on a Surly Ogre.

To give you some idea of the biking usage of the trail: I met only one other through-biker. I made lots of friends with the hikers though.

Happy to chat with you about it if you want to talk more. You can PM me, etc.
