Home just a week and off on a vacation with my husband Mike!
We are traveling to one of our favorite states, Colorado. Mike is a great rode-bike enthusiast and has loved the sport for the past 30 years. He began by doing Century rides (100 miles) right from the start. He has raced mountain bike as well but now is committed to the rode. So much so that he has even taken a trip to France with his buddies during the the 2004 Tour de France to ride some of the same course as the professionals.
So, it should be no surprise we are here in Colorado for the Pro Challenge Race! It’s beginning in Aspen and ending in Denver. It is a 7-day stage race but we will just see stage 2 and 3.
Our first day we traveled to just outside Telluride and stayed in our favorite campground at Priest Gulch. The weather is perfection with mild sunny days and cool nights. We had a tasty meal at Honga’s Lotus Petal. The sushi was good but the Mojito’s were the best I have ever had!
We spent our first night in a tiny cabin as we listened to the sound of the rushing river outside our door. Tomorrow we are off to Gunnison for a 4 night stay in a lovely B & B!
