80 Miles For Beer

It was worth it. What a fantastic day!

Rolling into Hygiene, CO

Country Road

'Tis a Twisted Place, this Fort Fun

The Lineup

Hate The Drake

This guy was hilarious. After he furiously passed me down a hill, I shadowed him for about ten miles. When he saw me turn off, his double-take almost caused him to crash. Oh yeah, he's wearing a booger jacket too.

The sunset was pretty nice as well...

Motorcycle Ride

About three hundred miles yesterday. The highest paved through road in the USA (12,183) Miner Pass (10,758), Willow Creek Pass (9,621), a dirt road shortcut from Rand to Gould and Cameron Pass (10,276). The Fall colors were popping and the best part of the ride was CO 125 from Granby to Rand due to the combination of colors and empty road that was charged hard. So fun.

LA Law

The City of Los Angeles has stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the park. The Los Angeles City Council just passed a new against harassing bicyclists (story). This groundbreaking ordinance is something that will hopefully be followed nationwide. Big props to the advocates in Los Angeles and the City Council for having the fortitude to pass such a law in the most car-centric metropolitan area in the United States.

Just to mix things up a little, I took a cruise on my Y2K Schwinn Cruiser Supreme on Monday.

Somehow I found myself heading up Left Hand Canyon.

Glendale Station and the big blue cruiser.

Cruising up Left Hand Canyon Road at about 8,000ft MSL.

Rolling into Ward, CO at 9,450ft MSL.

Dropping into Peaceful Valley...looks peaceful, doesn't it?

The bustling and newly repaved Riverside Drive in Raymond, Colorado.

No more pics because as I was pulling onto Lyons, a deluge struck and I was soaked to the skin. A stop at Oskar Blues' Chubway for a sammich and a beer fueled the rest of the trip back into Longmont.

Finding new and interesting ways to get from A to B by bicycle is fun. A combination of roads and trails were used today with much success.

Rockies By Bicycle (sort of)

Rebecca and I fonally got over to Denver to see a Rockies game. We drove down to Denver and parked a few miles from the ballpark and then rode in. Sure, it wasn't the old "ride to the Big A from my place" kind of spin, but the mileage was close. One of the best things about riding to Coors Field is the designated bicycle parking. They have a fenced area under a road ramp with numbered spaces and an attendant to log who is parking their bikes and in which space(s). With Denver already being really bike-friendly, this only adds to its niceties. As for the game, we were treated to a good old fashioned Rockies slugfest, with them racking up fifteen runs behind rookie Juan Nicasio's most excellent MLB debut on the mound.
