Can you share the company that you used?

It was Backroads and I consider it expensive but was hoping for a good value. Manoir Hovey definitely was.

You may have an entirely different experience, particularly as a couple.

I ride alone a lot of the time but I do some group rides when I am in Denver and choose carefully. I consider myself fit - I know I am good for 40 miles with some climbing here. I tend not to do longer rides because I am working on weight loss and when I go all out, I need more time off. My avg speed has been climbing this summer(with some of that attributed to my fearlessness on the downhills;) I'm pretty sure 35 is going to be my max for the moment.

I also have a couple of day rides coming up. This one - I did the 50K last year and planning for the 70K this year and will be will a friend from Glenwood Springs at least on the course.

I do have to say last week in Denver and earlier this week I had random guys yell "good job" at me which was a great lift.

(and I really didn't mean to wallpaper the board)
