Sunday Eric, Erik, Jon and I went to Colorado Springs to ride the Gold Belt Century. It was kind of a strange ride as there was quite a bit of gravel and dirt roads. Some riders choose cyclocross bikes, some with road bikes with 700x28c wheels. I was the only one to choose a traditional mountain bike. The Trek Fuel with 1.8 inch mountain bike tires was my setup. The first 31 miles I averaged 18.9 miles per hour! The ride offered a lot of different types of scenery and a lot of climbing. We had a van follow us which allowed us to eat a lot throughout the day! The pizza stop in Victor was pretty good. Photos tell the real story. Garmin stats here.
