Cycling is a whole life activity. Welcome to the addiction.
My first MS150 was in Colorado. We rode from South of Denver to the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canyon City. First day was a century that included the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs. We stopped that evening at Colorado College Football field. It was the year I got out of engineering school having ridden about 300 miles total for the year due to 18 hours of class, working full and part time and looking for a job. I nearly died attacking the first day like I was a teen and actually had some miles in me. Got two leg massages that evening that made it work, but the final climb to the bridge nearly did me.
The next two I was ready for.
