It was a hot day riding the wide open prairies of Colorado. A shortish route of 22 miles on a beater bike gave me a pretty good workout. After 7 days of driving, getting on the bike was rewarding. The route took me on the Cold River and Rock River trails and except for the occasional runner and biker, it was pretty much me and the prairie dogs. After 7 days of driving, getting on the bike for a good ride was pretty rewarding.
I’ll be doing quite a bit of riding during our week long stay in Colorado. From here we head west to California with stops in Sedona, Moab and Joshua Tree National parks.
