Spring Road Biking
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Sometimes we feel sorry for ourselves living in Steamboat and this spring’s weather (or lack of spring) has caused some frustration for outdoor enthusiasts. On Sunday however, we awoke to a beautiful day and I decided to go for a long road bike ride with my buddy Hans. We rode a fabulous 55 mile loop that runs out a country road to the coal mine and then heads to Oak Creek over what is called the “three bitches”, 3 long, steep hill climbs. After Oak Creek, it heads back to Steamboat on another quiet country road. What a great ride! I think we saw more animals (deer, antelope, cranes, hawks, fox and coyotes) than we saw cars. You don’t need EPO to feel good out here!
