    NICE!! Great vid! I like the bike porn shots too. Need to put it to some John Denver though (Rocky Mountain High).

    I'm hoping to try it at the end of this month. That route you took up looked freakin steep. I'll be trying it from the route you took down. Is the route you took down a hike-a-bike up as well? Or could you ride that route to the top?

    If you have the lungs to breath, there shouldn't be much you can't ride. There are some hike-a-bike sections; I would assume one couldn't go up the spot where Terry crashed. That's really steep... and straight up the hill.

    Here's the Time vs. Altitude map.

    It took us about 4 hours for the climb, and about 3 hours for the downhill. However, we did stop frequently on the DH to shoot video footage. We also spent about 30-40 minutes hanging out with Terry after the crash. We didn't want to rush him after that trauma.

    We did take the Colorado trail back, and that was more of a XC ride than DH.

    Terry rode it out after the crash. A little reserved with the hand swelling up, but did a great job riding out.

    Haa haa haa.... That is an interesting question.

    I originally wanted to leave town around 4:30 am, putting us on the trailhead around 6. We didn't get started until 8:30am. Terry and Chris wanted to sleep in (I caved), and we took off from here around 6:30am after getting some bagel's and stuff in Golden.

    That said, you'll want to start from the other trail head (south). That will take you a bit longer to get there drive-time wise. My guess is 2 hours. We had a great day with NO storms that even thought of building up. Ensure your day has a big "H" over Colorado.

    Have fun, good luck.

    Thanks, I'll be coming from Fort Collins, so I think I may go down somewhere close by the night before and camp. Then wake up at the butt crack and start riding. Do you know what the millage is from the South trailhead to the summit?

    Not exactly sure, but its 4 miles from the Colorado Trail/SE Elbert intersection to the top. Do a search on Elbert and 14ers in this forum, 29Colosus had some great information about that section.
