I'm from the great state of Colorado, born and raised. I mtn biked a lot when I was younger, then did nothing for a long time, and 5 years ago my wife and I bought road bikes and haven't looked back. Enjoy the big mountain passes, and bike adventures of all sorts. Lucky enough to have done a bike tour of Switzerland, and hoping to do Italy (Dolomites) next. Decided last year that since we so rarely actually tour CO outside of our usual spots, we're going to go by bike and explore here more, too.
