I rode Sun. TBP #5 for me.
We left Avon as the rain was ending.
Had beautiful weather over Vail and over Loveland.
Just as we were leaving the lunch stop it started to rain.
We got blasted all the way to GeorgeTown.
Coming down the GT hill, the storm was directly over us.
The lightening and thunder were amazing.
As we made the turn into the train station, the wind and rain
made it almost impossible to see. The volunteers that were
directing us could not be heard and barely seen.
We stopped in GT and waited out the rest of the storm.
We were soaked and cold.
At Idaho Spgs. the sun came out and it was clear to the south.
As we pulled into Echo Lake it started again.
We waited out this storm on the porch of the lodge.
The descent to Bergen Pk. was freezing cold.
It was also tricky w/all the wash outs along the road,
especially on the lower part.
We had time to get a bite to eat and it started again.
Just as I got my bike loaded it was pouring down and the
lightening was all around.
It was my most epic TBP, but never more satisfying to
pull into the finish.
