If I'd had some warning I might not have done what I did today. Rode from town up to the Colorado Trail, north all the way to BV. Was planning to ride back through Bassam Park and over Aspen Ridge, but I was too worked. So I rode home on the highway (damn you wind!).Anyone around Salida want to ride tomorrow? I'm shooting to start late morning and knock out a few hours of good trail time. No plan yet, but am thinking of climbing Marshall and doing a bunch of Rainbow.
When I got to the beginning of that section I was feeling near death. I'd finished the demanding section to the south, and from there a guy has to climb a long section of pavement up to the ranch then the good long section of the jeep road that goes up Princeton.Sweeet ride. That section between Frontier Ranch (do they still call it that) and Cottonwood... so good. Maybe need two pizzas.
