I just finished a crazy few days of riding with some out of town friends. Starting Thursday afternoon, I ended up riding Green lake, then Bear to Doctor’s on Friday, 401 on Saturday, and 409.5/402/Tony’s on Sunday. All told, that’s about 110 miles of bike riding, on some of the very best Crested Butte has to offer. I have photos from some of the other rides, but I’ll start with what may have been the best of the bunch, 409.5/402.
Joining me that day were usual suspects Zach and Tom, plus Javier from Guadalajara, Mexico, and Adam, a recent arrival to the area now in his first year at Western State College. It’s always fun to ride with new people- Adam did a whole lot better than I would have at his age on a 40ish mile ride, while Javier was a great rider whose father started the first bike shop in Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city. 18 years of riding and Javier declared Sunday’s ride “best all-time!”. Glad I could do my part to show the goods of CB. Anyway, on to the pics…
After that, the skies eventually cleared and we made out way up to Tony’s to finish off the ride in style. I ate a quick burrito at Teocalli Tamale, and then had to ride the 3 or 4 miles back up the hill to my condo in Mount Crested Butte. A bit of a crusher, but a near perfect day nonetheless. More on those other rides later….
