    Just took a small group out to Colorado on a CannonTrek. What a blast!

    Plenty of good times and plenty of challenges. Daily breakdowns and some "battle damage" too.

    As usual, I'll cover the ride, some history and interesting places along the way, and I'll share the GPS file.

    Counting me, we started with six riders. We finished up with four.
