Video of the Week: Red Rocks to Mountain Tops Adventure Ride

With the change of seasons approaching and cooler weather on the horizon, it’s a great time to find inspiration for fall motorcycle touring. In this week’s Video of the Week, the crew from the Rocky Mountain ATV MC YouTube channel takes us along on an epic loop that they’ve dubbed the Red Rocks to Mountain Tops adventure ride. This 800-mile route begins in Moab, Utah, and over the course of four days, winds its way through Colorado’s Uncompahgre National Forest to Telluride/Ouray, before looping back into Utah.
