Bike Tour Colorado (BTC) 2011 – Day Three

June 28, 2011

June 21 Tuesday DAY 3 Granby to Steamboat Springs, that  crosses the Continental Divide at 8,772′ Muddy Pass. At 9,426′ Rabbit Ears Pass was the at the Summit on this ride.

Dan and Kevin were so far ahead of me, I think I was casting for the movie Back to the Future.

Dry but freezing on Day Three.   Summitted Rabbit Ears, after 65 miles of riding and over 5,000′ of climbing.  This is one of those times at 55 miles, I was ready to quit.

I’ve been there before, as recently as the bikeMS ride in May.  I didn’t give up then.  I couldn’t give up now.  I had a little help from a new friend along the way.  I hope I get a chance to share his story.

That’s why I wrote Paint Yourself With Abandon.

More in the weeks ahead…
