The Northern Colorado Indian Motorcycle Riders Group 4-day and 3-night road trip to Thermopolis, WY and Red Lodge, MT. We had an absolutely unforgettable time embarking on our Thermopolis road adventure. The meticulous planning and dedication that goes into organizing these multi-day and night group rides cannot be understated. Mark, our esteemed NoCo IMRG Road Director, truly outdid himself in orchestrating this remarkable expedition. Over the course of four incredible days, he skillfully led our group of seven members and six bikes on a journey like no other.
Setting off on our first day towards Thermopolis, we were greeted with dry weather, although the ceaseless wind that accompanies any venture into Wyoming made its presence felt. An early respite came in the form of a well-deserved stop at the historic Virginian Hotel in Medicine Bow, an architectural gem dating back to 1911.
Continuing on our journey, we travelled through small communities, and rode past rugged mountains and rolling plains. In the late afternoon, we arrived at the Hot Springs Hotel, tucked away within the Hot Springs State Park. Eager to unwind, a select few indulged in the hotel hot tub, while others sought solace in the hotel lounge. Later we all met for dinner at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant was adorned with a wide range of magnificent big game trophies sourced from every corner of the globe. This splendid exhibition showcased over 1,000 meticulously arranged game mounts, including majestic lions, awe-inspiring tigers, and formidable bears, enveloping us in an authentic safari-like ambiance. Later in the evening, we found ourselves captivated by a live band playing at a nearby pavilion.
