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.
Mr Head,
The two days took its toll I did nothing on monday and I mean nothing hardly got out of the easy chair.Tues. I did a 20 mile easy spin on the rail trail and my legs weree feeling pretty good.Tonight i'm going for a C club ride and may do some light climbing.Actually it's a clydesdale ride which I just qualify for beer drinking after.
Funny how things that never cramped or hurt before or bothered me before
start hurting on the second day
