Closing out Colorado

I left Boulder without my wallet and had to go back to Rocky Mountain National Park the most expedient way which unfortunately had all the traffic. Much like going to Yosemite it was slow going, with tons of cars, and no one willing to turn out. Once I got to the park I was relieved... Continue Reading →

Amazing: The Peak to Peak Highway

The Peak to Peak Highway is an amazing piece of asphalt. It was a part of my journey every day of the trip and other than the draconian speed limit management it's always a wonderful addition.

The problem with their system though is that they tell you there's a change four times and then you... Continue Reading →

Around Boulder – 0 Miles

The rains were coming and Jeff and Maureen live here so I’m taking two days off the bike to chill and hang out with them. Jeff was able to take Wednesday off, so we got to do a bit of exploring by car which was a nice change. We drove up to Rocky Mountain National... Continue Reading →
