    The Denver Century on tandem with wife.
    Kids helped at an aid station mid-way - got food hugs and kisses from them there! They went from there to finish, and cheered us on coming across finish.
    So awesome.
    56MPH down hiway 40.
    Back to more MTB soon!!!



    Nice pics, btw, YO! The one at WR is $$$.

    Sorry - I got none (yet).

    Hope all the fathers had a great Father's Day!!!

    So you did some Salidastan visiting didja? Coolio, glad you liked it. I did not even go downtown for FIBArk. Seen the crazy enough times. Drank me some super interesting Deschutes Espresso Stout with a couple bike geeks Saturday night after a little of this:









    I posted about this ride Saturday on the Mt Antero thread. Mebbe it kinda got lost... cuz nobody was raving about my Fo Togerfy.

    Started out early with a couple of hours at 3 Sisters by myself and then met the family at Elk Meadows for a quick loop with my 10yr old boy while mom and daughter hiked. A meatball sub and a wheat beer for lunch down in Morrison at Tony Rigatonis with the family, a couple hour nap and some homemade gumbo for dinner.

    Just about perfect.

    Sunday was a bit crazy since it was my twin boys 7th Birthday on top of Father's Day! But I was able to slip out of festivities at my in-laws for some peace and quiet with a quick evening ride of Coyote Ridge and Rimrock Loop. The High Park fire is still going strong, but the smoke wasn't too bad on the south side of Fort Collins last night.

    I rode Hall Ranch (surprisingly quiet) by way of Antelope, Nelson loop in both directions and then down Bitterbrush. I then followed it up by riding Picture Rock and Wild Turkey before heading back down Picture Rock.

    29 miles and 3500ft of climbing and descending in the fresh morning air.

    This is the only photo I took. I should have taken more as the air was great!

    That's probably my next ride down there. Need to spend a bunch more time out that way. I made if from Boulder to Poncha Springs in 2.5hrs - rarely exceeding the speed limit except to pass. Thankfully not many rv's to clutter it up. Kicking myself for not getting that way more often, What, maybe another hour past Summit county?

    Sat - wimped out and took the shuttle up to MCT, down agate, up marshall pass rd to silver & rainbow. I didn't eat enough and was cooked maybe a mile into Rainbow. Would like to do that again without lightning and w/ legs - glad I took the shuttle.

    Sun - rode from camp up to Co Trail intersection w/ 50. Planned to ride to Princeton but bailed at CR 252 as I just wasn't feeling it.

    It has lots more hike-a-bike than I remembered. But it's grand, and totally deserted. I did not see a person after I left the Hancock Townsite until I got to the Tincup road.

    I took Williams Pass over to the west side and climbed up to the Alpine Tunnel from over there since it had been a while since I saw Williams. It's awesome, but you'd have to be some kind of bad-@ss rock garden rider to clean it from the summit down to the bottom of the west side.

    That's a big danged ride. I personally prefer getting back to the divide using the Old Monarch Pass Road, just because it isn't so damned far. The Marshall Road up from Sargents has a really gentle grade, but it feels totally endless. Taking Old Monarch is more like pulling a band-aid off fast. And then you're all set to ride the Crest again! Probably would take me as long to get to Marshall via the road up from Sargents as it does to go from the bottom of Agate up to Old Monarch and across...

    Sat at Buff Creek to ride CT out and back with the Green Mountain loop. Didn't take to long to find a Hundo sign with the arrow pointing against our direction of travel. We encounter just a few riders before making the first GM/CT split. Fell in with the flow at the second split. Zoka Burgers during the hail storm.

    Sun Rampart Reservoir and then to Fathers Day BBQ.

    I did the Denver Century also, back to dirt soon. Seen a couple of tandems out there, might have seen you along the way. HOT HOT HOT day and windy coming up Indiana. Could not wait to hit the finish line.

    I do remember one tandem couple that had a little radio on their bike, was that you?

    No rides. Went backpacking, though - saw *one* person from noon on Saturday until about 3pm on Sunday. Trailhead only ~1.5 hours from town. Bizarre...

    Nope - no radio.
    We were on a maroon colored Santana. Started in the 3rd wave - about 6:48.
    Two of the many people dressed in the red and white Young Life kits.
    There was at least one other Young Life tandem (blue IBIS), and I saw one other tandem as well (not YL), an orange DaVinci - riders had orange vests on.
    Yes, way too windy up in the northwest section, then of course it died down, as to not push us as we all headed east!!!!!
    If you got a sandwich from the trailer at the rest stop right before the Indiana climb, my son probably served it to you - 14 yr old with red visor. My daughter was in there too.
    Nice job on toughing it out in rough conditions!
