Cycling Fremont Pass

So many mountain passes, so little time ...
Fremont Pass is excellent choice for cyclists wanting to taking on the Continental Divide. From the Leadville / Lake County side, there is ample shoulder throughout the twelve miles on Highway 91. The elevation gain is 1300 feet, which makes this ride moderate compared to Cottonwood Pass and Independence Pass. Below are my photos and videos from a ride in May.

Fremont Pass, Colorado
Steep climbing. Little oxygen. And plenty of snow. That's my kind of bike ride!

The weather conditions were a far cry from April 5, when I drove through Fremont Pass in a snowstorm.

Four more miles to the pass.
