Nice Ride, Long Drive
On Saturday, Brad and I met at the house, then headed for Kaladi Brothers on the bicycles.
After coffee and scone (me) and breakfast burrito (Brad), we took off to ride the gravel part of the Highline Canal, then looping around to the South Platte Greenway to come back north. After zig-zagging through the neighborhoods , and hitting the the paved trail along Colorado Boulevard, we got to the Highline.
We rode at a pretty good pace, all the way down to the C-470 Trail, where we turned west and headed to the South Platte. On the way north, along the river, the wind kicked up. And, for once, it was a nice tailwind. At one point, we dropped the hammer and busted out a 30mph sprint for about a half-mile.
Sunday morning, I followed Brad up north to Wiggins, Colorado.
I was dragging a trailer behind the truck...
We went to the middle of nowhere, and swapped the car for this:
But, since I prefer to ride in the sidehack, rather than drive a scooter, I don't particularly need one of my own...
The scooter was about 85 miles from my house, so I did a lot more driving that day than I usually do in a week! It was for a good cause, though.
