Default Golden Gate Canyon drive

ok....so, here's the organizational thread for a nice canyon cruise.

I'd like to wait till i get my rims and springs, but it'll be fun anyway.

how does next weekend sound for everyone? saturday afternoon? meet at the loaf and jug at 19th off of hwy 93? what time is good for everyone?

As long as it is fairly mellow. I'll save the heavy duty for 3:30 A.M. when both lanes are mine. I have been getting mellower lately though, or maybe just pickin smoother lines. What a road!

Where is this road?

Directions from denver?

I think I know what you're talkin about.

Just a one lane twisty for miles and miles?

I used to ride on my R6

I totally agree there. Tearing ass in the middle of the day isn't my style.

OH.....I know this road like the back of my hand. I have two really good freinds that live 8 or so miles up the canyon. Back in high school, we both had Legacy 1.8T and would race/time each other from the light at hwy 93 up to the turn off to his house. I think the record is 10min or so for 8 miles of twisty roads. You have to do it at night like at 2-3 am so you can see the head lights of cars coming the other direction, cutting corners and stuff.

Oh and watch out for those stupid deer

Having followed you up the canyon, I can verify this.

well...3:30am then?

we'll need someone who knows the road to lead, because i know i don't have enough light on the front end of mine. maybe we can bring a few stooges along to block off both ends of the road?

Default oh yeah...directions!

i took hwy6 into golden, went straight at the light where 6 goes up clear creek canyon so i was then on hwy93

passed a few lights till i saw a sign that said Golden Gate Canyon and turned left...there's a light at the intersection.

if we meet at that loaf & jug right off of hwy93, i can show the way for everyone who hasn't been there yet.

Oh yeah, and don't drive the road UP, drive it down, some of the best corners are coming down the canyon because of altitude changes, I assure you, you want to be going UP around really tight corners rather than down... Start at the 119 side of the road (take 119 up through Vegas if you want, about 9 miles past, take a right down golden gate canyon).... end ens up back on 93, take a right to head back to the 58/93/6 intersection where Diz and I almost got some VERY VERY expensive tickets.

Another option is do like Nick, Diz and I did... drive up 93 to boulder, up canyon road through Nederland, past nederland through rollinsville, and the left (about 8 or 9 miles past rollinsville) onto Golden Gate.

The above drive is a good one.... the drive from boulder to Nederland is two lanes most the way with good open corners, from Nederland past rollinsville to the turn off there are some really good high speed runs (where you can see the road/lights for miles ahead of you)... be careful going through Rollinsville, we blew through there at like midnight at about 85-100mph, radar detectors going nuts, but Paul wouldn't slow down, no one followed, local cops I'm sure were like "huh? did you just see 3 cars go by here?"...

Peace - Z
