    Part of a Triangle

    There's nothing like a high altitude ride to get the blood pumping. We attempted the Copper Triangle, but weather moved in at 12,000' and caused us to abandon our plans at the top of Serle Pass. Regardless, it was a great ride on the CT.

    Heading up from the base of copper.



    Onto a little narrower trail.





    Across some bridges.



    Up some rocky trail.



    Then some nice flowing tree covered singletrack (much more fun coming down).







    A little rest.





    Back to climbing on some tight singletrack.







    Some standard Colorado views I never get tired of looking at.



    Another rest.



    Looks like Mother Nature is about to call.



    Waiting for the downhill crowd to pass.



    The final ascent!





    At the top of serl we huddle next to a rock as the rain comes and it gets cold very fast.





    Fearing it will get worse, we decend with a sense of urgency. OK, it was more fun then urgent.

    I'm glad to be back in the office on Monday for a change. I need the downtime after that 8 mile, 2500' climb. I thought the Westridge climb on the CT near Keystone was a grunt until we rode this one.
