Ride the Rockies

The San Luis Valley is a great place to ride a bicycle — I know this from my own experience and it’s being reaffirmed by the thousands! of guys in bright jerseys riding road bikes past my house part of the Ride the Rockies.  I wonder what they think riding through these small towns and through the farming countryside? I wonder where they came from?


They’re riding to Pagosa Springs today — that means they’re going over Wolf Creek Pass. Ahead of them is a slow climb then a rather sharp hill climb over a high mountain pass then down to a pretty mountain town.

They’ve been riding a while. As I was out there setting the water I heard “You want lobster? Dude! I want pancakes!” I think the pancake guy is more likely to triumph…

  1. I so wish I could ride a bike. We have so many wonderful bike trails where I live, just going places in the fresh air. Not because of lack of trying. I have often sat on one of those two wheeled wonders, but they wobbled and would not move without threatening to fall. Now I know why and it was never to be, but I would still love to be able to.
