Today’s ride was 80 miles with 5,040 feet of climb. I was hoping to get on the road a few minutes early but it ended up being a few minutes later at 6:50. It was cold like yesterday but not quite as bad. We had a nice downhill for the first 9 miles which was nice. We then had our first of the two major climbs today up to Walcott Gap at elevation 8,256. We then had a nice downhill and did the second climb which ended at mile 38. We had most of today’s climb in the first half oh the ride which made for a nice second half of the ride.
We followed a river along most of the second half of the ride.
This was another beautiful day on a bicycle and Steamboat Springs should be a fun town. Tomorrow a short 50 loop day.
