|The official Team Bar2Bar stop in Montrose.|
|The locals were out in force at the street party in Montrose -- including my long time friend Jeri!|
Climbing three passes on one day, two over 10,000 feet and one over 11,000, took it out of me. Actually, I don't think I ever had it. Starting out in the morning it was freezing cold and I feel like my legs simply never warmed up.
|45 Miles of winding roads, steep drop-offs and three passes!|
|The summit of Coal Bank Pass (1 of 3)|
|The summit of Molars Pass (2 of 3)|
|Overlooking Silverton, Colorado.|
|From whence we came!|
|Finally! After hours of climbing we reached the summit of Red Mountain Pass (3 of 3)|
|Glad we stopped at the Bear Creek Falls overlook on the descent of Red Mountain!|
|This is a screen grab of the video I took on the descent. I will post it when I have more bandwidth!|
|My assumption is this is why it is called Red Mountain Pass :)|
|It pays to remember to look back every once in a while on RTR! According to my friend Jeri this is Mt. Abrams.|
Hard to believe tonight will be the final night of the ride. First it feels like RTR will never get here. At times on the ride it feels like it will never end. Then suddenly it's over. But not yet! TIme to saddle up.
