Done with Tour of the Gila for one more year. It went better than last year, but still not as good as I'd hoped.
Up next is North Boulder Park, a little camping trip to Moab, Coal Miners, Koppenberg, some more local racing, then off to Hood River for another edition of Mt Hood Cycling Classic. Hopefully it goes better than last year too.
Yesterday I did the coolest ride ever here in Colo Spgs. I got up pretty high, even saw some snow. I rode up Gold Camp road, past Cheyenne Canyon, through the closed part for 8 miles of loose gravel and down Old Stage Rd back into the Springs. It was fun, felt like a mix of MTB and Cross, all on the road bike. Not everyday do you get to rail some singletrack, and a rocky creek crossing on the road bike.
Here is the view from the top, please excuse the camera phone quality pictures.
Also, I've been planting and building in the back yard. Here are my tomatoes, with there custom built tomato supporter things. Also, you can see my radishes coming up in the foreground, the broccoli is harder to see on the right. We've got 3 kinds of lettuce coming up already as well, along with a bunch of wildflowers and some basil.
And finally, Jami planted a bunch of herbs in pots, so rather than leave them scattered around the deck, I decided to build a little plant stand for them.
