Time to trade in those four wheels for two and get out and have fun!

Springtime means warmer weather and that means we can dust off the bicycles and get out and ride! So as I ready MY bike for the spring, let’s take a look at a few places we can ride to from here, and what we can see!

Fat Tire Rides

There are various trails within riding distance, and if you love trail riding on your bike, here are a few “fat tire” trails you will enjoy.

As part of the Tabegauche trails, The Gunny loop is a trail that has some climbing and distance to it, but the views alone will make you glad you came. The entire distance is 8.8 miles.

As part of the Lunch Loop system, Andy’s Loop trail is considered a difficult trail due to its terrain. However, as with all of the trails, the views are spectacular.

Skinny Tire Rides

If you are more of a distance rider, or prefer blacktop to dirt, there are a number of places for you as well. Not the least of which is the Colorado National Monument. If you have ever been on the Monument, you know how the road switches back and forth, ultimately topping out with the most amazing view of the Grand Junction area around. The climb is difficult, but the cruise down affords you some breathtaking views, a few excellent places to pull over, hydrate and take it all in. There is an opportunity, if you like, to ride to Fruita along the Monument. Add in the Rose Hill Rally in May and you have a few excellent ideas to get those skinny tires moving!

So there are a few day trips within reach of Grand Junction that will get you out and about, healthy, happy, and riding! Enjoy!
