I'm planning on hitting the ct this summer and want to a route that is as rideable as possible. Seeing as the 2009 version has more hikeabike planned, I was wondering if anyone had a list of the detours used in the 2008 edition...or are those the same as in the guidebook...which is on the way, so this might be premature. thanks.

I need to make an archive page of the '07 and '08 CTR route to preserve those records if anyone wants to challenge that route. In any case, the old detours that are not part of the '09 CTR were:

Tarryall Detour - Wellington Lake Road to Rock Creek TH
Tenmile Bikepath Detour - Gold Hill TH to Copper Mtn.
Coney Summit Detour - Hwy 149 to Lake City over Cinnamon Pass to Silverton.

The other (mandatory) detours for '09 remain the same as in '07 and '08:

Holy Cross / Massive Wilderness Detour - Wurtz Ditch Rd, Leadville, Mt. Elbert TH
Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Detour - Clear Creek Rd, BV, Avalanche TH
La Garita Wilderness Detour - Saguache Park Rd, Los Pinos Pass, Hwy 149.
Weminuche Detour - Silverton to Molas Pass
