Thanks for the chilly pics funrover, every time I see them, I get a little homesick. I can't wait for my spring break trip out there next year. I will ride in the Centennial area (my folks), then on the western slope ( in-laws), I'm hitting the Grand Mesa. If I have time, I'll try to battle Hoosier Pass again. Just great pics, thanks again.

I love cool air as well and Fall/Winter are my favorite times to ride. Of course winter temps to me mean 45 - 55 degrees. It has been cool but right now outside its 85 degrees and will get hotter by weekend - that SUCKS!

When I saw this picture I was thinking that you were taking a picture of your bike leaving you behind.

Sounds like an epic return! Good luck on Hoosier!

It was warm around here then instantly dropped (I love CO)!

Nice pics. I love Colorado...in the summer. Give me 110 degree heat over 40 degree cold any day...but I know I live on the outskirts of the temperature tolerance bell-curve so to each their own.

Heck, I was cold on the 60 degree ride I took this afternoon.
