    I also give my highest recommendation to the book, Road Biking Colorado: The Statewide Guide by Michael Seeberg, and also available from Bicycle Colorado.

    It covers over 150 routes with pictures, descriptions, ratings and elevation profiles. It calibrates nicely with my impressions of the routes I rode last summer. If it says moderate, it means moderate.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.
    The perfect day: Riding a bike to the library.—Peter Golkin


    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    My goal is to do Triple By-Pass! Here's the only link I could find:

    http://avon.org/index.aspx?NID=415

    Please advise if there is a better one. It says 125 miles with 11,000 feet of climbing. I've done two rides tougher than that this year already. However . . . they were at considerably lower altitude, which has to make a HUGE difference.

    Anyway, at least once before I die, CO for Triple By-Pass! For 2009 it's already full, plus I'm signed up and paid for Seattle to Portland on that day. Maybe next year?

    We're staying with a friend in GJ for a few days. Too bad she doesn't ride; this looks like fun.
