Day 19: Good ol' Golden
Bernie was up and out early to get that leaky fork seal replaced while Shawn and I... well, didn't get up very early. When we did, we coasted into town and grabbed some breakfast before taking a short ride up wonderful Rt 6.
Up, up, up climbing back into the mountains. We jumped off the beaten path and tried to get lost.
I was glad we did!
We even found some dirt to blast around on, our efforts rewarded with spectacular views and zero other cars.
We rode through Golden Gate Canyon State Park, stopping to take in the view.
Noticing the storm quickly moving in, we made haste for Rt 6 and the warmth of Golden.
Before meeting up with Bernie we took a little detour up Lookout Mountain Rd and really enjoyed the hell out of that stretch of road. Some great peg scrapers there!
Looking East, I wasn't terribly excited about our day tomorrow. There wasn't much but flatland and heat ahead of us....
But we would make a night of it in Golden!
