Ride the Rockies Day One

I made it safely and rather swiftly from Durango to Cortez. After the initial climb the route was mostly downhill. Thank goodness, because we were riding into a stiff headwind.

According to my Garmin Edge 705, I averaged 14.74 mph and burned 2,184 calories. Time to go eat!  Its hot and windy in Cortez this afternoon. Maybe I'll go find a nice, cool establishment for a burger and a beer!

Ride on!
