|Once again this year I expect to ride a majority of the miles alongside my buddy Woody, who I met on my first RTR in 2005. Woody's wife, Lora, is the daughter of one of the founding members of Team Bar2Bar!|
Then the haunting questions set in:
- Did I train hard enough?
- Will my body hold up for another weeklong ride in the Rockies?
- How will I keep my iPhone, Garmin 810 and new Ivation Bike Beakon charged all week?
- Where did I put my tent?
|One of the best parts of RTR is meeting back up with friends from previous years like The Hankster and Flip Flop Jenny (so named because she rides the entire route in dime store flip flops).|
But that's what makes Ride the Rockies epic: long days, big climbs, screaming downhills, and cold beer waiting at the finish line. I can't wait!
|This will be the first post-retirement for Paul the (former) Pilot who retired from United Airlines shortly after last year's ride.|
