On Topless of Green Mountain

On topless of Green Mountain. Relax, people can summit this thing in 30 minutes.

This week’s of bicycle riding was interrupted by some snow falling in the Front Range, much to the chagrin of the rest of the thirsty state, which hasn’t seen as much snowfall as is anticipated.

Help me find an amazing charity to race for.

I’m trying to plan my Summer Adventures and like last year, I’d like to do a Very Big Ride (maybe the Tour Divide again?) and also help out a Really Good Cause. Last year’s fundraising was a huge success and I’ll post more details about that (finally!) soon.

1/22 – 1/28 Week Summary

Biker Jims

Biker Jims – a well deserved reward after a 100 mile ride

This week was filled with personal disappointment as I only really got in one solid ride on Saturday – a 100 miler up High Grade, to Evergreen, N on Kerr Gultch and down Lookout Mountain Road, back home via the Clear Creek Trail to South Platte Trail. 

I could cite quite a few excuses, but it comes down to laziness.

1/15 – 1/21 Week Summary

Ashton-Flagg Ranch Rd, June 22nd, 2011


June 22nd, 2011, between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park on the Ashton-Flagg Ranch Road with a considerable amount of snowpack still lingering.

At around 9:00pm last night, I was rolling through downtown, when a drunk dude threw something at me. 

I’m not into this. 

I quickly locked my brakes and came to a screeching halt, to have a word with this man.

Mt. Lindo – 75 miles

Mt. Lindo

 

 

Yesterday, I was researching untested terrain to ride my bike up to. I was looking for mountain roads I have yet to try out, which is slim pickin’s in the winter time, as road conditions are going to suck anywhere with surprise!

1/8 – 1/14 Week Summary

Peak Finder

Mon: ~35 miles ride around Cherry Creek Res.

Wed: ~15 mile hike up Sobo/Bear/Green in a snow storm

The rest of the week was quite a wash. Had a trip planned for Winter Park and a hike, perhaps even up to Parry Peak (which would have meant doing James and Bancroft – and again on return) that fell through, mostly out of crippling anxiety attacks.

South Boulder/Bear/Green Mountain

Forecast was for snow on Wednesday and as much as I wanted to have a bike-heavy week, it wasn’t going to happen with a snowstorm in the middle. I’m not even close to the point of riding a trainer inside at the moment, as I have nowhere to put something like that and well, no trainer  and buying a snow-specific bike seems silly when it’s much funner to spend much less and get a descent pair of warm boots and huck it.

Peak 1

Plans to take on Sniktau -> Cupid -> Grizzly were defeated before they started – my ride fell through, sadly. Thems the breaks when you go carless and rely on the kindness of other people to get you to pokier parts of town.

Bear Peak Saddle

Currently, hanging out in Breckenridge, enjoying a quiet Christmas, getting my leftover mimosa on – getting up early tomorrow to hike a few mountains. Perhaps something like this:

Sniktau -> Cupid -> Grizzly (with a very small chance of Torreys, but time is a factor).

Bear Mountain via Nebal Horn via… Places

“So where did you come up from?”, the lone

other

person on Bear Peak inquired.

I thought for a minute, but I had no real good answer. “Hmm. Over… uh, there”. I pointed basically North of us, which points to a rocky outcrop called Nebal Horn.
