I really wanted to write up a whole long blog on this one as it was a great week. But seeing that it is a week late I thought I'd better just get something up to show for it!
I felt bad for my athlete Leon who was coming from Florida! I was hoping he owed enough warm weather gear!
Friday afternoon we spent at FasCat on the wahoo Kickrs and did a Lefthand / Lee Hill loop on them with video! Saturday it cleared out enough for us to head out Saturday morning. It wasn't looking good but 3 miles into the ride we saw the follow car on the side of the road and stopped and shelled off a bunch of clothing!
Leon not only came prepared for the weather but also do some climbing! From 80's, sun, and flat roads at sea level to snow, wet, cold and elevation. He got stronger each day and by the last day he was putting out the best numbers of the weekend!
We had a fantastic group this year! It seemed everyone enjoyed the snow on the mountains a bit. Of course having a follow car to add and subtract layers does make it nice. Thanks Nate and Allen for following us!
Here is Leon and I at the top of the Pinecrest climb on Saturday afternoon. At the top of this one we could easily see our breath!
The last day we did Flagstaff! One of the most famous climbs in all of Boulder.
Everyone was still smiles after we had accumulated over 10,000 ft of climbing, over 150 miles and 8 hours in two days of riding. Basically hitting every climb in the Boulder area. How did we celebrate after we rode up Flagstaff on Sunday? We rode up Sunshine to Poorman, of course!
Not pictured were some good moments as well. Such as watching Playoff Hockey, eating pizza and homemade salsa at Jason's house and then of course the mandatory trip to Reubens. Though Tucker mentioned some kind of dessert that I never got. I guess he owes me.
