I drove up to Berthoud Pass with my kids this morning while mom worked on Thanksgiving dinner. I must confess that an ulterior motive was to scout it out for the possibility of a ride in the spring to train for the Triple By-Pass.
And then on the way down I saw an old guy, gray beard and all, chugging up to Empire. I wanted to be riding today. Up the pass and maybe down the other side.
Soon...soon. Even if it is in the spring, it'll be soon enough. I'll start by riding Deer Creek, Bear Creek, Lookout and Flagstaff Mountains. Then maybe Evans once the road is open.
