Gary France had a specific reason to go to Cañon City. It has a road that is famous in American motorcycling circles. Appropriately called Skyline Drive, this one-way road runs along the top of a ridge, with steep drop-offs on both sides. It is a truly remarkable road. Only 2.5 miles / 4 kilometres long, this road is just wide enough for one car, the road has no guardrails, so you have to pay attention. The road has a 15 mph / 25 kph speed limit but there is no way any biker could ride it that slowly on a motorcycle. At first, it climbs up the side of the slope from its junction with US 50, but it’s not long before you reach the top of the ridge, and your eyes dart from side to side. The sensation of riding along the ridge is very strange, especially as there is nothing on either side. It is a must for anybody taking a road trip across America.
