A nice little stream between Pinecliff, and the Peak to Peak Highway.




This is what we finished in down at the Air Force Academy Road Race.

This is my favorite ride: 1987 Centurion Dave Scott Ironman with the iconic paint scheme. Very smooth, light, fast ride. I still ride above 10,000 miles per year.. The Centurion sees about 80% of the miles, shared with a 1988 Peugeot Canyon Express and a 1987 Raleigh Elkhorn. I'm 64, so still young and kicking ***.
