..is what I told myself after watching it pour rain on and off for hours in Breckenridge. I trained all winter in the snow, why am I being so lame in August? I loaded up my Ergon BD2 with rain gear and some warmer gloves, and tried to dodge the thunderstorms.
Sometimes computer and coffee are the way to go while your bike waits…until you get impatient and dying to ride your bike, and you head out.
Rain storms all around
A mere moment of blue skies.
My original plan before the bad weather was to ride to the top of that moutain. shoulda brought some skis!
Snow capped mountains.
I tried to ride the CO Trail at the Dredge Lot, but Mother Nature denied me. It started hailing pretty hard partnered with thunder and lightning. I decided to head towards Frisco and came up on another trailhead. It was also part of the CO Trail, called Gold Hill. I climbed for about 25 minute before I had to go back. It was misting, but pleasant out. The trail was soft, but I wasn’t sinking in. It was awesome!
Bl-uty Bee uuls (like someone from the UK would say. 🙂 )
Trail was a little wet, but not wet enough to sink in and cause damage.
