Today I finished my meeting early and Gail picked me up for our last ride of my trip to Colorado. We went to Lair o' the Bear, in Kittredge near Evergreen. We rode 8.5 miles total. We started out at 6600 ft, climbed to 7300 then back down. There were lots of ups and downs. According to Gail's GPS, our total ascent was 3100 ft! It was a very very nice ride. It's beautiful. It's my favorite so far. It's not as strenuous as Mt. Falcon or Meyer but you get a workout because of the length and total climb. Here's a scenery picture:
From Dec. 22, 2008 to mar. 14, 2010 I posted about my daily commute in Madison, Wisconsin. It was fun to log pictures of the bike path and my brief thoughts and weather conditions throughout the year. Then I got interested in other things and stopped blogging for over a year. I still commute daily, even longer now (7 miles one way) and absolutely love it.
Now I'm blogging my biking experiences while traveling. I love to take my road bike and mountain bike along with me on road trips in the car. It's a great way to see the country and meet locals. It makes business and family trips a lot more fun, in addition to vacations.
