Another good training weekend in the books. On Saturday, Stephen and I decided to get out of town, hit up Rocky Mountain National Park, and ride the Trail Ridge Road through the park. Our goal was to get in some sustained climbing at some higher altitudes. Here's some photos of our thin air sucking ride.
The snowpack is mostly gone, but it's still about 1.5 Carney's deep in a few spots.
Over the top the first time. Then a quick stop at the visitors center to fill bottles, do some tourist watching....good times, then down the west side. Can you say wind chill??
Today, we headed up high again, this time to the West of town. We drove up Buckhorn Canyon and got in some good miles up and over Pennock Pass to Pingree Park and parts beyond. We finished up with some riding on Monument Gulch. Another good day.
