Bike Tour Colorado (BTC) 2011 – Day Two
June 20 Monday DAY 2 Estes Park to Granby Rocky Mountain National Park
Rough day all around. Altitude challenged, still, up at 5 AM, delayed until 8 AM, rain, cold, snow, sleet, wind, fog, flooding, freezing rain, mud, dirt, soaked tot the skin, borderline hypothermia. Visability near zero. No vistas from me.
I climbed to almost 9,800′ feet, decided to SAG. I had them drop me off at Aid 4. The ride in from Aid 4 (20 miles) was in freezing rain. Dan and Kevin SAG’d in from Aid Two, about 1,000′ above. Check out the local news link below.

I will never complain about 95 degrees and 100% humidity again!
Have you ever seen graffiti like this? These walls of snow were 30′ plus. RMNP Graffiti
