Day 3 Pacific Coast Motorcycle Ride Route Map

Today is day 3 – Pacific Coast Highway motorcycle ride, we are just riding, putting some miles (517) behind us, getting to our destination, the Pacific Coast. So, we won’t be stopping except for gas, food and rest but we will be seeing nice scenery along the way… I am riding with riding buddies, Larry C, Larry T and Larry A… Yes, they are all named Larry… I won’t ride with anyone unless their name is Larry… Well, it does make for a good story… 😊

Rolling down scenic I-70

Come follow along as we ride 5534 miles in 14 days, riding more scenic western U.S. roads. Today we are riding from Georgetown, Colorado to Ogden, Utah, 519 miles via I-70, U.S. 191, U.S. 6 & I-15.

This morning leaving Georgetown, Colorado, it is a bit chilly at 38 degrees. It felt even colder while riding through the shadows of the majestic Rocky Mountain canyons. Riding I-70 is a scenic, long, mountainous stretch of interstate highway from Georgetown to Grand Junction. When living in Colorado, Janet and I loved driving I-70 because of its beauty. Larry C. commented as we made our way down I-70, “Who would have thought an interstate highway would ever be considered a motorcycle road!”. It really is a motorcycle road. For those of you who would never consider an interstate as a motorcycle road, I would highly recommend you ride this stretch and find out for yourself.

Larry’s following on I-70

From Georgetown, we rode down scenic I-70 300 miles to Green River, Utah. We turned northwest on to US 191. The scenery has gone from mountains to flat… really flat with views of mountains to the east and west of us. It was a stark difference from the first 200+ miles. It is beautiful in a very rugged panoramic sense. At Spring Canyon, the scenery is starting to get mountainous again. At Castle Gate, we leave US 191 and continue northwest via US 6. The scenery was greener with rolling hills. Very nice, then getting a bit more rugged. North of Spanish Fork we pick up I-15. We are riding the interstate to Ogden our home away from home for the night. It was getting unseasonably warm and we got stuck in heavy traffic for most of the way riding up I-15. This, as it was on a previous ride, did not make for fun riding. I think we will avoid I-15 for future routes in and around Salt Lake City. I would suggest you do the same unless you like riding in heavy traffic in the heat…

Leaving Colorado

We were glad to finally make it to Ogden. We were hot and tired and in need of a good night’s sleep…

Come follow along, enjoying more beautiful scenery as the Larry’s and I continue our ride.

Ride safe and I hope we see you down the road somewhere…
