BTC and Hiking

It’s been some time now, but the Bicycle Tour of Colorado was a blast. I rode with my friends John and Barry, and we’re really quite compatible speed-wise. Each of us beat the others to the top of a more than one climb, and we rode together for a good part of the week. And better still, we had a great time seeking out the brew pubs in each of the towns we stopped in. (And there are a lot!)


Here we are at the top of Independence Pass.

This was a slightly more common occurrence. We found beer everywhere. Good beer, even. And usually locally brewed.

On the rest day in Crested Butte I decided to ride the chair lift to the top of the ski area and hike to the top of the Butte. Then I walked all the way to back to the condo. I was more sore from that hike than any of the cycling days. But it was still a great way to spend the day off.

Here’s a bunch more photos I shared of the week.

Here’s the week according to Strava:

The Crested Butte hike was just the first of many this summer. The following week I climbed Grays and Torreys Peaks and then climbed Mount Yale with my friend Blade.


And this past weekend my twin sister Jeannette came out and she made me climb Mount Audubon with here.

This coming weekend I’m planning to climb Huron Peak with Blade and a few more folks. I’ll try to post pics of that a little sooner….
