....... there are so many good routes !
.... sorta depends on what part of the state you're focusing on.
....... US 50 is a great route (Royal Gorge & Arkansas River canyon) to get you from I25 to the central mountains. From there (Sailda) it's sorta 'pick-any-direction' north/south/west for great riding.

550 is a great ride. We are heading out there June 3rd to ride with a buddy from Denver. I will be back before you leave and will give you some roads he recommends.

On the way out, or back, try to hit the Thompson Canyon on US34 between Loveland and Estes Park, and continue on thru Rocky Mtn Natl Park to Grand Lake. No shortage of spectacular rides in Colorado, but this a great one.

Anything but I-70. Kansas is 8 hours of 80 MPH boredom, except for when you see the cop sitting over every hill.
