So apparently winter / spring is not over in Boulder, CO yet. Woke up to day 3 and the conditions were 39 degrees and misting! So down right cold. We pushed the ride back a few hours hoping for better conditions. Luckily things did clear out and dry out. It didn't warm up, but at least we were able to stay dry. Lack of pictures mostly due to the fact of laziness and coldness.
The mountains were clouded in and we stuck to mostly flat roads for the day. We headed North and East. We did have a little fun with the short, very short ascent up Rabbit Mountain. Then headed back to town some of us adventured back up Sunshine for a few miles.
There should be some mountains back there
Descending the lower slopes of Sunshine. One of my favorites. Though I think they are all my favorites.
Sunday wasn't much better, but we were able to get out early before the chance of rain increased. We started in two groups. I took a group up Super Flag which was engulfed in fog and a cool 32 degrees at the top. We than descending and met up with the other group and did NCAR and headed towards the flats and kept adding in time as it was still dry. We ended up on Lefthand and then Old Stage. Tried to get a group to head up the front side of Lee Hill, but we were 3.5 hours and that was a no go. So we rolled back in. Luckily we did as we were 2 minutes out the lighting clashed and the thunder rolled! Perfect timing!
Overall it was a solid weekend of riding! We didn't get as much as we thought we may have, but that may not have been a bad thing. Everyone was sufficiently tired after the 3 hard days of riding. Not much to give by the end of it. Recovery time for everyone!
I made it back home in Indiana at 2 am. It was a long day!
