Summit County, Colorado
Motorcycling has long been part of Colorado’s history, beginning when riders would explore the back mountain roads that cut through dense forests. Back then, many of these roads served as mining or logging paths for trucks, accessing some of the most pristine wilderness around. Today, many of those roads remain unpaved for the off-road bikers who venture onto them. Fortunately for the touring and cruiser crew, many roads are now paved, offering accessible rides through the canyons and mountains passes that make Summit County famous.
