Colorado Plains Ride

My friend and I went on a weekend tour into the Colorado plains this weekend from Boulder to Briggsdale and back, check it out:

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...58936&z=9&om=1

I used google maps to place all the pictures on the route, the first day is blue and the second is red. Google maps has some great features for documenting this kind of thing, I just wish it had a milage marker like gmaps!

It was a pretty great ride other than the series of flats I received probably due to the crappy Kenda tires I was using. I also had some butt issues thanks to an uncomfortable Terry saddle I've been too stubborn to give up on. No more, I ordered a B17 the second I got home!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

No go on the Boiler room, Greeley's reputation scared both of us away!

Greeley's a kittycat (I can't use the other 'bad' word!). The reputation shouldn't scare you away...the smell maybe...but not the reputation
