On Thursday, August 4, I drove to Colorado for another Colorado Rocky Mountain Bike Tour. As long as I was in the neighborhood, I thought I would do a short ride up the last one of the seventeen highest paved passes in Colorado that I had not yet done, Hoosier Pass, south of Breckenridge. I had planned to ride up the south side, but after driving it I thought that the climb looked more interesting from the north. And once at the top, you could still enjoy the views of Park County to the south. So after spending the night in Frisco, I drove to south of Blue River, found a place to park, and headed for 11,539 feet.
