Breckenridge to Colorado Springs I


A simple overnighter on lovely Colorado roads and tracks. Legs certainly don’t want to ascend Boreas Pass the day after racing, but the easygoing brilliance of the day carries us along. We go through our PB&J stash with alarming gusto and rapidity alongside streams, through dusty horse and cattle country, knurled crags against puff Western skies.

(The only frustration was getting left behind on the flats and descents.)


Conscious of the luxury of it, reveling, we’ve packed our jeans for the cooling night. Perfect: ride, eat, sun sets, sleep.
