We had originally planned to be riding down the roads along the Mississippi, starting in Minneapolis, MN, but one of our group had a medical procedure which precludes him from riding – so we regrouped and are taking a shorter trip in Colorado. Today we started out by driving from Boulder at 8:00am and parking at the east side of Swan Mountain, then riding over Swan, having lunch in Breckenridge, then riding back to Frisco, across the Dillon Dam and then back towards Keystone where our cars were parked. All told we rode around 33 miles – not bad for a first day at altitude.
It was warm and sunny when we got gas in Silverthorn, but it was nippy when we parked and started our ride. We are staying in a nice condo in Keystone. We are John, Ingrid, Rick, Janelle, and Ken. We had dinner in Dillon tonight at a restaraunt called Adriano’s. They specialize in pizza and Northern Italian cooking. Our ride tomorrow will be weather depenndent. It is suppsed to rain and be colder than today. Will keep you posted.
