You meet a road in a car. You get to know it on a bike.
CRMBT in 2008, and again last year on the Copper Triangle. But, I've always been going the other direction. I've started on the longer side of Fremont Pass, followed by shorter climbs and great descents of Tennessee Pass and Battle Mountain Summit. This route would have us climb the tough side of Battle Mountain, followed by a tough climb of Tennessee Pass, up the shorter side of Fremont Pass, and a big descent to Copper Mountain.
BAK on a tandem this June, and one evening Terry saw my CRMBT t-shirt and told me they were doing this tour too. Casey's going to Colorado School of Mines this fall, and thought a tour that went right by her new school would be a good way to celebrate graduation from high school.
