Colorado Winter Ride

What better way to spend a day in the middle of winter than to take a ride to 10,000 feet above sea level?!?

The weather has been quite warm the last week or so, something that is not all that unusual for Denver in February. So I got the V out on Saturday and rode the 60 miles to Jefferson, which is on the northern end of South Park. It was 70F/21C in Denver that day. It was a little cooler in jefferson (48F/9C) at 9,500 feet. Warm enough, except for the 40+MPH wind gusts out of the northwest, which made the last couple miles a little less fun. It's not uncommon for that section of the state to get 100+mph gusts when weather fronts are moving through.

I had enough time to drink a cup of coffee, chat with the local deputy, and buy some chocolates and fudge (valentines is coming soon!!) before heading back home.

I had extra gear in the rear soft bag, but I just wore my speed & strength shell, winter gloves and my basic overpants over my jeans. I was plenty warm the entire trip.

Photo is from the South Park overlook at the top of Kenosha Pass . Sorry for the rotation!

Nice. I envy you for riding in February!

I'll be heading to Colorado for a few days in June, riding with some buddies and really looking forward to seeing the sights. Feel free to post more pics anytime!

Always trust your cape.
