Itinerary

Your route:-

Day 01- Sun Aug 11th – Dublin – Denver Colorado

American Airlines

Outbound – Dublin – Chicago  09.55-12.00  ORD - Denver 13.20-15.09

 

Please remember that you will need a valid ESTA to enter the USA. There is no rush at this stage to get this done, but do not forget about it!

 

We have a Welcome Dinner this evening and overnight in Denver.

Day 02 – Mon Aug 12th – Collect our bikes – Leadville, Colorado

                        Via Pikes Peak,       

We collect our motorbikes at Eaglerider’s depot in Lawrence Street and once the formalities are complete, we get on the road!

It really is a beautiful drive through White River National Forest. There are majestic views, jutting mountains, big horn sheep, sometimes elk herds, several quaint mountain towns.

 

Day 03 – Tues Aug 13th – Leadville – Gunnison Colorado

Over Independence Pass into Aspen and Redstone and Black        Canyon.

Independence Pass, originally known as Hunter Pass, is a high mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado in the United States. It is at elevation 12,095 ft (3,687 m) on the Continental Divide in the Sawatch Range. The pass is midway between Aspen and Twin Lakes, on the border between Pitkin and Lake counties.

Much like the Grand Canyon, there are two rims to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, with the southern having many more view points.

 

Day 04 – Wed Aug 14th – Gunnison – Durango, Colorado

Through the Million Dollar Highway, Though the entire stretch has been called the Million Dollar Highway, it is really the twelve miles (19 km) south of Ouray through the Uncompahgre Gorge to the summit of Red Mountain Pass which gains the highway its name. This stretch through the gorge is challenging and potentially hazardous to drive; it is characterized by steep cliffs, narrow lanes, and a lack of guardrails; the ascent of Red Mountain Pass is marked with a number of hairpin curves used to gain elevation, and again, narrow lanes for traffic—many cut directly into the sides of mountains. During this ascent, the remains of the Idarado Mine are visible

                         

Day 05 – Thurs Aug 15th – Durango – Kayenta, Arizona

Today’s destination is Kayenta, still in Colorado, to see the Great Sand Dunes. The landscape changes slowly, turning into mountains. San Juan Forest’s pine trees rise towards the azur blue sky. On the way, you’ll cross the Great Divide, this invisible line separating the Pacific from the Atlantic.
We also get to see Monument Valley before arriving into Kayenta.

 

Day 06 – Fri Aug 16th – Kayenta – Bryce, Utah

                 Boulder, Esclante, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon

From Kayenta we will ride up to sleepy Mexican Hat, briefly a frenzied gold-   mining camp, which takes its name from a riverside sandstone hoodoo – it actually looks like a south-of-the-border sombrero. We ride on past the Valley of the Gods, where much of the movie “Thelma and Louise” was filmed, and cross the Colorado River where it pours into Lake Powell. Lake Powell has 1960 miles of shoreline, which is more than the entire Pacific Coast and 96 water-filled side canyons. We ride along the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, across aspen-covered peaks, along the buff-colored sandstones of the Devil’s Backbone, through the Escalante Wilderness, and finally to Bryce Canyon, where we overnight. This is a day you'll never forget

 

Day 07 – Sat Aug 17th – Bryce – Fillmore Utah

                 Fishlake   

Day 08 – Sun Aug 18th – Fillmore – Winnemucca, Nevada

Open ride on America’s Loneliest Highway.  Stopping and riding at         Salt Lake Flats

The main characteristic about this highway is the absence of buildings, towns or really anything man made. You still encounter cars (though not too many) but other than that you pretty much drive straight sections followed by mountain passes.

Winnemucca is the only incorporated city in and is the county seat of Humboldt County, Nevada, United States. Winnemucca is known as the "basecamp to Nevada's backcountry," an area dominated by the stunning Battle Mountain.

 

Day 09 – Mon Aug 19th – Winnemucca – South Lake Tahoe (or Stateline)

                Looping around Lake Tahoe

                               

Day 10 – Tues Aug 20th – South Lake Tahoe – San Francisco CA

                 Via Sierra Mountains

Donner Pass is breathtakingly beautiful.  For those who know the story, it's hard   not to think about the group of California-bound pioneers who were stranded here in the 1800s.

 

Day 11 – Wed Aug 21st  - Free-day in San Francisco

Yours to Explore! Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 – so much to see and do!

 

Day 12 – Thurs Aug 22nd – San Francisco - Napa

Old Highway 1 – a lovely drive so enjoy it as best you can!

                       

Day 14 – Sat Aug 24th – Mendocino – Cresent City CA

Up Highways 1 & 101 through the Redwood Trees, Avenue of the Giants. The Avenue of the Giants is a scenic highway in Northern California, United States, running through Humboldt Redwoods State Park. It is an old alignment of U.S. Route 101, and continues to be maintained by the state as State Route 254

 

Day 15 – Sun Aug 25th – Cresent City – Newport, OR

Oregan Coastal Drive A scenic drive extends along the oceanfront all the  way into the center of the city.
