COME'ON....GIMME A LITTLE HTFU
It's the easiest bike tour in the state....I think.
If I can't get through this, then I don't deserve to own my SWEET beast.
I guess this is my way of warning you that I'll be writing a "race" report, but this time, it might be quite enjoyable cuz there WILL BE PICTURES!
This year, I'm actually going to TAKE pictures along the route. The section as we ride up towards Pike Peak as the sun rises is just too beautiful for me to keep to myself. So, I will stop along the route to smell the flowers....so to speak.
Besides, I have to do it.
The Sunrise Century is in July. and THAT, my friends, is a DOOZY in the most technical of terms.....climbing to 9000ft....with my limited amount of bike time, scares me.
So Elephant Rock is the "Get your butt in the saddle" ride. After which, I WILL get my butt in the saddle, riding up through Boulder to the Peak to Peak Highway, getting ready for Sunrise.
I'm BACK in the saddle people! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
