Greetings from CO

Post by BrianLask on Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:37 am

Hello all,

Just wanted to drop a line from Colorado. I miss riding with you guys, I have not found a group I enjoy riding with out in Colorado just yet. I have been putting in a lot of good riding though, tons of climbing, I have a 3.2 mile 1600 foot climb right by my house that I do probably every other week. Its a tough one, even tougher descent though. I have greatly improved my descending skills, though they couldn't have been worse than they were in Germany.

I have been racing on my Cat 5 out here as well. lWithout a group to ride with I have been rocking the KMC Cycling threads at my races. Made some nice beginner mistakes my first couple races (riding too far in the back of the group, getting caught on the wrong side of a 40+ mph wind), but am learning. It is fun, I have a fairly easy course this weekend, finishes with a 250 foot climb, on a dirt road. Lots of riding on dirt roads out here, not sure whats up with that. Hoping to be with the group to the end, then see what happens.

Signed up for some awesome events out here. Doing the Bicycle Tour of Colorado, 438 miles in 6 days. Looking forward to that as I haven't seen Colorado all that much except for on ski's. Its a ride not a race, which is way better, don't think I could do 6 days of racing, or even 3 days.

I am leaving Colorado this summer, wife is being relocated to the Pentagon. I will be looking for some cool riding in DC as well.

Take care, keep riding!

Hey Brian. Mike Larson and I are in New Mexico right now. Planning on doing the Santa Fe Century if you are interested in coming down for it. It is a cool ride through the turquoise trail. It is May 19. Not a super hard ride, but gets about 1000 people here.

Brian,

Enjoy CO while you are there! Great riding and racing scene in DC, so no worries w/ that. I can give you some info when you get there and decide where you are living.

I will look into it, and let you know. Sounds like a very distinct possibility, I always like when I don't have to plan out routes myself.
