No, I am not going to attempt to ride my bike to the summit of Longs. In fact, I don't think its possible.
As I was riding in to work this morning I caught a peek of Longs Peak between Blue Mountain and Crescent Mountain as I was coming over I-70 on Rooney Road. It shone white in the morning sun, a beacon of winter on an autumn morning.
I was happy to know that I can see Longs Peak on my morning commute, via bike. I'll look for it in the future as I prepare for the screaming descent from the watershed boundary between Lakewood and Golden.
A couple of years ago I couldn't imagine I'd ever write in my blog that I'd see a Colorado 14er on my regular morning commute.
