I can hardly believe it's the middle of January, 2015! What they say about time going faster as you get older? I can tell you they're right. It doesn't seem like that long ago when we were wondering if Y2K would be a major catastrophe. Now it's 15 years later in the blink of an eye.
CRMBT in 8 years. If I am unable to make it this year, I know I'll be back again soon. This is the best tour, with the best people, in one of the best places to ride a bike.
And my intention to one day join my brother-in-law and nephew on RAGBRAI will probably have to wait at least another year. (I really need to retire so I can ride more). One possibility for a Colorado ride that doesn't take a whole week is one that I've done before, and would love to do again. They've just opened registration for the Copper Triangle. 78 miles, 3 mountain passes, and almost 6,000 feet of climbing on the first Saturday in August with a few thousand fellow cyclists? That sounds about right!
