    Kenosha Pass to Breckenridge's Dredge Boat(lots of Pictures)

    Having moved to the Front Range of Colorado from the Mountains of North Carolina just under a month ago one of my goals for this year was to hit one of the high mountain passes before the snows hit.

    Yesterday I hooked up with Too Many Toyz and Flyer. We left the Lakewood area around 6am and dropped a car off at the Dredge Boat in Breckenridge and drove over to Kenosha Pass to be on the bikes just after 9am.

    Gotta Love this State. Actually hoping to get out your way soon, Dave. Lyons may have a new resident family in a year or so if I have my way about it.

    PBR...Trails that way are riding sweet riding now. Oh, yea...the views are something else too. May be getting out for the Wednesday ride. Most likely just riding in from the east side instead of driving over.

    Nice job Jeremy, Scott, Flyer. I was in Breck Sat., only got a small ride in with my daughter, and we came back over Hoosier and Kenosha. The aspens at the top of Kenosha were U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E....
    Was up at West Mag today with my son, and some pretty amazing stuff right now there as well.
    Hope to get some pix up of both tomorrow.
