93 miles in Summit County

Yesterday (Monday) I took a day off and hit the road with my buddy and mentor, Lew. He and I are scheduled to ride the “Copper Triangle” ride in a couple of weeks with my other buddies, Jonathan and Val, and so we wanted to pre-ride the route just to get the miles in. We rode from Lew’s home in Frisco, past Copper Mountain, over Fremont Pass at Climax, and just outside of Leadville.

From Leadville we went over Tennessee Pass, through Minturn, and into Vail. The final push was up and over Vail Pass in pretty intense sun, and finally back into Frisco. Here is a link to my buddy Lew’s ride data: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/101791645 (I’m hoping to get a comparable unit soon to track and upload my own ride data.)

The ride took us through some gorgeous countryside. It’s a must-do drive for anyone visiting Summit County.
