I have looked in to doing this back in 2005. Then my 4 year old had to see the dentist, and the dentist cam, said he was donig the ride. One of there riders had dropped out. Then he said i should come. I really wanted to ,but didn't know him well. So i didn't want to be the slow guy on the trip that they didn't know. Then i got and email from my friend who was friends with my kids dentist. Any ways i went. It was awsome! Do it, go if your thinking about it. We went on september 3nd. Lucky for us we only road 2 days in the rain.(1 day before the bad rain in colorado) 2013. I will add some pictures of the hut's and the ride. We took all of the alternate routes we could, which on day 1 molas pass that really added some climbing . Climbed up to 12,500 feet on our bikes. There is room for 8 riders in the huts ,that are fully stock with food ,and water.
