    Seven Summits on 7/27/14

    Might be a bit early to be asking, but Iím planning to make a stop in Rossland on an upcoming road trip, specifically to ride Seven Summits on Sunday, July 27. Iím planning on using the shuttle services of Mountain Shuttle. Iíd love to join up with a few other riders planning to hit it that day, as Iím from Hawaii and donít really care to be out there solo for this one. I would describe myself as an advanced trail rider with average climbing speed and above-average descending speed. I normally donít like to be in the saddle for more than about 4 hrs, so looking for a 4 -5 hr pace group (obviously Iím not familiar with the trail, so Iím taking a stab with this one). Happy to buy the beers and burgers when weíre done. Anyone up for it?

    Hereís an update for those interested. I rode Seven Summits as planned, scored perfect weather, and was able to easily find another rider in the Mountain Shuttles group that day to hang with. Highly recommended ride, it was the highlight of my trip. With plenty of breaks, it took 5 1/2 hrs, which includes the awesome downhill back to the cars at the end. Kick ass ride!
