I had heard of this “Rist Canyon” on many occasions, so I was happy to finally have the chance to ride some of it. Jeff had to do an interval and then turn around, so I didn’t get to see the “steep” part, but I got to see close to half of it. Next time!! Whoda thunk, there actually are a few Canyons in Ft. Collins. I really love the road riding in Boulder, but it was good to branch out and see something new… including cyclists who actually wave back at you when you say hi. Imagine that? I also saw there were less people riding with their helmet hanging from their handlebars. They are wise in Ft. Collins.
On the way out. Pretty funny… I see this sign in the Front Range in a lot of places.
There are other riders on the road out here, but they don’t try to race you and not nearly as many people as in Boulder. It’s nice to not have 1000 chodes trying to suck your wheel.
Hup! Yes. I own a road bike, and I like to ride it sometimes.
This was actually on Friday. We just went out for an easy spin around town.
Jeff doing his interval, soon to dust me.
Yes siiirrrr… cow town o rama!
Today we are riding to Estes Park… about 90 miles I think. My hands go numb after awhile on the road bike. I need Ergon grips on there somehow… Hopefully they will be ok. I need to figure that out. I put some gel tape and got some gel gloves, but I’m still uncomfortable. I have had a good bike fit too. I guess I need to get used to the roadie position.
