Bicycle Tour of Colorado - Recap

So what can I say? BTC is a great experience, tons of work, the riding is not easy but you're rewarded with top-notch, jaw-dropping scenery and some long descents. The variety of scenery is staggering - epic mountain passes, river gorges, hot arid desertlike lowlands. Camping makes for a little more work pitching a tent at the end of a long ride, but it's worth it to sleep outdoors. If I could have changed anything, I would have gotten an earlier start each day so I could savor more of the scenic. Oh, and instead of spending the prior 6 weeks recovering from an injury, I'd try to be well and training instead :-)
