I've started a ride through Colorado and Utah just to get back on the road. Hopefully riding Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Kosovo this fall. I don't think I would call this Epic Ride. But it's the closest category I could find. More than a week . I left Cincinnati Thursday. I rode 600 miles both days and I'm in Denver now. I wanted to go to Idaho Springs but hit Denver at 4:30 rush hour. Stop, stop, go- 1/2 mile in half an hour. And it's 93 degrees. I decided to let traffic start moving while I ate at TGIF's. Then I found a hotel right out the window. While riding in Kansas I took my helmet off because my head itched crazy bad. I assume because of the sweat. Didn't know what the helmet law was and didn't care. I was going to wreck with all the scratching and helmet moving I was doing. I rode 300 miles that way, until I was close Denver. What I didn't think about was the sun on my face. I can't recall the last time I got so sun burnt. I know this isn't much off a Ride Report yet. But tomorrow should be better.
