This will be an all day ride of approximately 260ish miles - the plan is to attempt to circumnavigate Flat Tops Wilderness Area.
The morning will be the hardest part of the day. FR211 may still have significant mud, and we will be tackling one moderate ATV trail (2290.) Everything past the end of 2290 is a mystery to me, so we'll be flying blind. It might be easy, or it might be hard, although I expect this entire ride is do-able on a larger adventure bike, with a skilled rider.
Once we get to Dotsero, this ride will be a combination of pavement and easy/fast gravel and dirt roads. Gas will be available in Gypsum and Yampa, depending on group needs.
I'm no mathematician, but I expect your bike will need a range of approximately 130 miles for this ride.
Lunch will most likely be at a restaurant in Gypsum.
