I cokered up the road to Mount Evans early this morning. Highest paved road in North America getting up to 14,200 feet. My ride today, 15 miles up and 3500 feet in elevation gain. It was a beautiful morning. Check out the Bighorn Sheep in the distance.

This Mountain Goat family was on the summit. Very cute kids.

Great ride! Only saw two cars all the way up. One was the ranger and the other one took my pic! That long, steep 15 mile descent was wanting a Schumpf hub!

Awesome ride Osmundo!

I was up there the day the road opened for the season.
Do they charge unicyclists the $10??
Heck of an ascent...wow.
Run over any marmots??

I started the descent at 6:30 before the window was open and forgot to stop at the self-pay station. I think I was supposed to pay $3. I'm going to do the bike race in from Idaho Springs to the top in a couple of weeks. It's a very fun race and the constant ascent keeps me in the game with all the bikes.

Good eye Jerrick..very impressed!! Yea...I've been meaning to get to that. It is number 1,273 on my list of things to do. I bent it cramming my coker in the back of the suburu with my son's bike. I've finally got my new schlumpf hub wheel build/Triton frame rolling so I think it will now take an even lower priority. Again. nice eye for detail...you should be an editor or something.

Would really love pics and a review of your new machine, Os.

It took me literally half an hour to see that bent spoke.

I'm rubbish at those 3D images where you have to squint too.

Suwanee Ride

To revive this older thread here are some photos my Grandfather took (as photos are his hobby) of my latest ride here in Suwanee at a local park. It war around 90 degrees but the humidity was down making it bareable. By the way I am also sporting some new Shinguards and gloves which have kept me from some serious harm today.


I thought this was a cool picture because of the "Play hard, live well, smile more" slogan in the background.






Had an issue with not keeping my foot onto that back pedal. Its rare but it throws me off balance as I come back down on that pedal.

This was right before I got kicked off this ledge.
