This weekend we are up visiting my parents in "North Colorado." Sometimes being up here feels like being in a whole different state compared to Pueblo (HA!). With the MTCC Experience Ride just a couple of weeks away, I brought my bike along to get an early morning ride done. I wanted to get some time up in the mountains again, since I haven't done a ride with that kind of challenge for a couple of weeks. A look at the elevation profile for the upcoming MTCC ride indicates a fairly challenging course. I hope that I haven't bitten off more than I can chew, although I will be surprised if the ride is more difficult than the ultra I did last month. Since this is my first century ride I plan on taking my time, and not hesitating to take a break here and there.
