After the Bobcat trails opened I started scheming about doing a loop that included all the trails around Fort Collins. This spring I finally took a day off of work and did a "Best of Fort Collins" ride. I did this ride as a big loop from my house. My GPS ran out of juice before I finished.

First little climb.


Looking back.


Do bikes really do more damage than horses?


Is this guy ever in the office? :)


Shaved Alpacas.


Riding in the park.


Let's eat and get ready for the descent.

The final descent.


Good times.

Thanks everyone. I try to do something "new" each year. This was new enough for me.

What's that thing attached to your seat post? An Idol to ward off exhaustion?
Funny. It is actually a Ganesh from India. One is sold with every car purchase to ward off obstacles.

What? You used gears?
Weird, I know.

You bailed out from riding Res Ridge/Shoreline/Maxwell/Pineridge to complete the loop ? How lame...
To be honest, I ran out of time and had to bail on the road. This ride took about 2 hours longer than I thought it would. I had to choose between pineridge, or howard, I chose to do howard (more climbing).

What was total mileage and time?
10 miles and 2 hours more than I guesstimated. All values are approximate (68 miles, 7400ft, and 10 hours).
