    2013 Denver Ride to Work Day photos

    Well, I couldn't do the Denver ride to work today, so I did the ride from work to home yesterday. 58 miles for me and 78 miles for my riding partner. We used cross bikes due to the mix of pavement, trail, doubletrack, and singletrack. The ride reminds me how nice we have it here in Colorado. Here are some pics...

    It was a fun ride, but there was one section of road (the start of Upper Lake Gulch Rd?) that was brutally soft. Everything else was pretty sweet. Such nice countryside out there to the east of I25. Mostly unexplored territory for me.

    I remember years ago (maybe 16 or so) I did the 27 mile off road course with my dad for Elephant rock and we rode that area. It's so wide open. I should look into it more.

    Well done.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.
