Day Two: Stagecoach to Hermosa Creek. We’ll get things going in Durango with a shuttle up to Hotel Draw and a “relatively easy” 20+ mile ride today… as we traverse across the ridge on the Colorado Trail, we’ll drop down Stagecoach which is a great warmup descent for the group to get you ready for what’s to come. After descending on a doubletrack road for a bit, we’ll hit the Hermosa Creek Trail. Hermosa Creek mainly goes downhill for almost 14 miles, but it does have a handful of punchy climbs mixed in, with one “good one” coming out of Dutch Creek later in the day. The purpose of today’s ride is to acclimate everyone to the bikes, the terrain, and the altitude… it’s going to be a good one, but it’s just a warmup for what’s to come!
