Sunday post work ride

Well I was completely tired before I started, but I am still really happy I went. Once again took the SS out for a "find a route" ride. Almost all of what I did today was new to me and it opened up a whole new set of rides WOO HOOO!!!!! I managed to stay dry but the weather was on my mind the whole time, I felt a few drops here and there but nothing more. For an idea of where I went: My apt to Daniels park. Daniels Park to Chatfield area. Chatfield to roughly I-25. Roads close to I-25 back home.

The beginning: Daniels Park




East/West Trail


Junctions along the way



Some nice stop points

Love your bike. But it makes my knees hurt thinking about your hills and that SS.

Thanks for the pics.

You know Funrover, I am kind of bummed looking at your pics of summer. I always love see you ridin in shorts in the middle of some Colorado winter blizzard. Only some hardcore could do that. Wimps like me can only ride in shorts in the summer.

;-)

It's not bad at all. Ironically that bike has become my bike of choice on longer road rides.
