Just returned from a 2 week trip to Co. the high point of the trip was riding to the top of Pikes Peak, this is a must do for anyone that rides a bike.:thumbup:
Didn't exactly know your coordinates...Could you see my house down in Woodland Park???
Lots of yards needed cutting (or is it mowing?) I have a lawn mower but not a lawn cutter! :joke:Yes, and the lawn needs cutting.:thumbup:
As you can see the day we were there the weather was just great, 45 degrees and clear.Well it looks like we are going to have to make a visit to Pikes Peak in July, others have told us there isnt much to see and the road is terrible (they have most likely never been), so we left it out of our plans. Ive heard about it since I was in grade school, might as well see it up close and personal. Its back in my plans, thanks!
It was fairly dry when we were there last week. The construction crews do wet the road down to reduce dust. They are in the process of paving the last section. The road was not bad. There is some loose gravel in the turns and you have to be careful. There are some very tight turns going uphill and downhill in the gravel section. Going downhill in the gravel section you have to avoid hard braking so as to keep the bike from sliding out from under you in the downhill turns.Whats that dirt like when it rains a lot? Anybody know?
