- the ride starts off with a ride into the canyon. It is mostly down hill until you get to the Red River. Some small climbs before the river but nice down hill rewards. The scenery is beautiful. After the river, it is the long and hard climb out of the canyon. There are some 11% Grades and a nice 3 mile last climb. From the rest stop at the top of the canyon, it is all flat until silverton. Silverton is a nice place to stop and go the restroom if necessary. It is the first place to get water on the whole trip. If you need it, you may need to stash some on the route somewhere in the canyon. From Silverton it is flat until you get to another reststop along 86. It is a beautiful scenic overlook. From that point it is all down hill. Fantastic descents. Just when you think you have gone down all of them, you are rewarded some more. It is pretty flat past Quitique but there are some small down hills until you get back to Turkey. <br> <br> The first half is a tough ride. Several times you climb part of the way out of the canyon. Then there is a nice descent. And then a nice climb again. <br> <br> My favorite ride so far.
