This is another back-dated post…
One of my training rides leading up to Leadville was riding Mt Evans from Idaho Springs on my mountain bike. It was so beautiful and fun. Here was my ride in photos! It’s pretty cool that you can ride up past 14,000′ on a paved road!
I was really glad that the altitude didn’t bother me till about 13,000′. It’s a great ride!
This was good prep for Leadville since it’s at altitude and climbing on roads!
