Colorado Trail Update

Sorry to say that we’re dropping the idea of finishing the Colorado Trail race course.  After two days of almost 50% hike-a-bike at high altitude, it became apparent we wouldn’t be getting back to Denver in time for our return tickets.  So we’ve dropped into Silverton where we’re camping at a campground with showers, and will take a detour for a couple days that will put us back on the Colorado Trail near Leadville.  Southbound riders and locals say that that section is much more rideable.  We’re still riding our bikes all day long, camping at night, and enjoying incredible scenery, just not on the course we’d originally planned.  I’ll be leaving my SPOT tracker on for those that want to continue following our adventure.  Thanks for all the support. -Robert
