Today’s ride took us over The Continental Divide. All uphill to the top of Hoosier pass and almost all downhill to Frisco.
Cool start in morning with temperatures in the 40’s. Prediction was for thunderstorms at noon so we wanted to be off the pass early. Saw a few dark clouds but no storms. Weather changes very quickly in Colorado.
Stopped in ALMA at General Store was nice as there was bike path between Fairplay and ALMA.
Nice riding on the bike path out of Fairplay.
Beautiful view as you start climbing towards Hoosier pass
Mark looking good
