AND WHILE THE TOUR WAS BEING DECIDED, WE WENT AND MONARCH CRESTED THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
With two giant high country tour rides going on this morning, the Colorado River Ride and the Copper Triangle Ham and Egger, a couple of us saw it as an opportunity to go hit up Monarch Crest for the first time this season as the snow has FINALLY melted up there. Jono, Alex C. and myself hit it up. The ride was as usual rediculously good and then we got the "appreciate ya" shuttle from Jake Wells who just happened to be in Salida racin Cat 2's in a road race...burgers, onion rings and milk shakes in Buena, and it dont get no better than that.
the ridler gold mine prior to leaving...And thousands of cyclists on the drive down as we hit the Copper Triangle ride.
