Jerry and Wally's Dyrty Steamboat

Went down to Steamboat for some camping, biking and music with friends.  Jerry Joseph and Wally Ingram opened for our friends band the Dyrty Byrds and it was awesome, one of the best shows of the year and the riding in Steamboat does not suck.







Sarah pumping some water at a very nice lake in the middle of nowhere....







Some stuff from around the Pearl Lake campground.










Final day and ride of the trip....off to Crested Butte this weekend.

The Colorado norm....

What tends to be the normal in Colorado is a pretty nice way to live.  Last week we had some friends in town for a trip to Rocky Mountain.  Really good to catch up and great reason to go up to the park again.  Prior to that Sarah and I made it out to Buffalo Creek for a nice 32 mile day.  Mushrooms are everywhere right now....pretty cool.




Rocky Mountain....






This weekend it was back on the bike with some refining of the Breckenridge Loop I have been working on.  Many different options just trying to figure out the best way to link things together takes some time.  Each year I continue to learn more about the amazing network of trail in Summit County....I think it is the most underrated riding in the state.








Overall great week on the bike looking forward to the next two weeks (Steamboat and Crested Butte), but not looking forward to the end of summer.

Another Great Weekend

Riding season is prime right now and had another fine weekend doing just that.  Yesterday went back up to Breckenridge; the more I explore there, the more I like it....Breck is awesome, could be the most underrated riding in the state and only an 1:15 away.

Did some more exploring in the Gold Run area and it did not disappoint...







Today did a ride from the house up Chimney > Apex > Dakota > Zorro > Green Mountain and back (32 miles 5,000 feet of gain).  Even some pics of me...Sarah actually took the camera today.








And some video from the super technical Dakota Ridge....
