Two Elk (Vail, CO)

Did the Two Elk as a loop from Minturn.  Up the bike path > Vail Resort > Grand Traverse > Two Elk Connector > Two Elk.  32 miles 5,000 feet.

This is one of my favorite rides and the flowers were going off up there......

Oh Breckenridge you hurt me......

Last Saturday put together a rather large backcountry route in Breckenridge.  I have been on all the trail in this ride, just never put it together quite this way.  This is now a must do every year, but it was brutal I was out for almost 8 hours.  45 miles with 6,000 feet of climbing.

Saw moose running down the road as I came off the trail.....

Would eventually work my way up to tree line and across the entire face of Guyot.

Almost to the top of Little French.

View of French Pass from the Little French flume.

Working over to the Great Flume.

Almost back to the car....crushed but such an awesome route.  So many big ride possibilities in Breckenridge.

High country riding season is in full swing....still quite a bit of snow above tree line so some of the rides are still a week or two out, but Breckenridge is riding great.  Managed to get three rides in so far  in Breckenridge over the past couple weeks.

Starting to get back into mid season shape getting some longer rides in Breckenridge has helped.  102 miles and 13,000 feet of climbing in three rides so far this year.  Some highlights......
