We’d end up riding most of the CT, taking the trail to Summit County. Except that we were doing CT+ … CT + the hike-a-bike from Monarch Pass to Clear Creek Pass. It would have been so much easier to just descend Fooses…

Oh Indian Ridge, how I love thee? This was my fourth time up there and first time I wasn’t getting shit-stormed on. Celebration!

The purple and golds were going off. The reds were still budding. Yay flowers on the CT!

As seen at Boneshakers Cycles in Buena Vista. Apparently a gal named Eszter used to be fast. Fast is fun…maybe I’ll get fast again next year. Maybe.
