No big scenery. Just plain roads around my hometown but it is where I do my riding. Pics from late summer/autumn.

That picture, more than just about any other one I can remember seeing, makes me want to get on my bike and never stop climbing.:50:

Been there, a couple of times actually. Hope to one day do Durango to Silverton to Ouray to Telluride to Mesa Verde and back to Durango. Somewhere between 225 to 250 miles if I remember correctly.:50:

Blasphemy...the descending is most definitely NOT the fun part....the climb is where it's at

rat fink 04-27-10 05:00 PM

Blasphemy or no, descending is my favorite part of cycling. I refuse to climb an awesome hill unless I get to reward myself with descending it afterward.

:fight:Truer words could not have been spoken. It is all about the climb. The descent is an after thought. The climb is the reason for being on the bike.:50:

For some maybe. But as a kid, I didn't walk up the hill in the winter for fun. I did it to sled down.
