Yesterday I met up with Lubes and PBR Me! at 4:30am for approx 53 miles from Kenosha Pass to Breckenridge to Como. S.S. Spike and his crew were throwing down 85 miles adding an additional 35 miles I didn't think my legs were ready for.

We got a car dropped in Como and were on the Colorado Trail by 6:20



PBR being chased by the morning sun



Lubes full of smiles



PBR taking a serious approach to the views



Still a few small snow drifts on the east side of Georgia Pass at treeline



Lubes cranking up to Georgia Pass



PBR almost to Georgia Pass



On over to the Breck side of Georgia Pass





Where probably two dozen snow drifts awaited our tracks



A good ol death march isn't quite right without a little drinkin involved



A few marshes were to be hiked



and lots of route finding



Sometimes we even hung our bikes out to dry



and rode tons of old flume like this



and this



Might be getting familiar now for those of you who have been training on the Fire Cracker Course



We started running into all sorts of folks at this point including Kerkove, Sonya, DJ Birtch, Rebecca Toma wiki wiki, and several others who I didn't recognize.

Sally Barber Mine



going down

down into Breckenridge for some refreshments from the local convenient mart



Then a climb back up Boreas Pass, course we took all the singletrack options to go up



Baker's Tank



A rest stop at the top of the pass



We finished the day on an awesome singletrack descent off the pass. Some where around 53 miles. Sweet!



GPS died on the last 6 miles of the ride..show 7,750 ft of climbing with 97% of the route being over 10,000 ft and our high point for the day being 11,870

Wow, thanks for posting! I'm truly in awe at where a bike can take you. I'm new to the hobby/sport but seeing epic journeys such as this has inspired me to get myself into shape.

I hope to one day post such pics myself. Thanks again for the inspiration!
