Loveland Weight Loss Programs RTR Day 6

  Day 6 of Ride the Rockies was going to be an easy  day. It consisted of 51 miles and 2291 feet of climbing with lots of descending . The route went from Estes Park to Ft Collins ending  at the  Odells Brewery. Odells was one of the major sponsors of this ride so of course we would stop there.  Up at 6am , packed , and headed to the local coffee shop. My roommate asked me if I was going to eat anything. I told him “food is overrated”. Had myself a cowboy coffee. I was on my bike [...]

Day 5 of Ride the Rockies was going to be a reasonable  day. It consisted of 49 miles and 4636 feet of climbing .

While the temperature was reasonable in Fraser , it was freezing cold in Rocky Mountain National Park.  While I physically felt [...]

Day 4 of Ride the Rockies was  a reasonable  day. It consisted of 85 miles and 3939 feet of climbing . The route went from  Copper  to Grand Lake.

Loveland Weight Loss Programs RTR Day 3

Day 3 of Ride the Rockies was going to be another tough day. It consisted of 79 miles and 6537 feet of climbing . The route went from  Copper  to Copper  and is known as the Copper Triangle. This day was tough enough that my roommate backed out of it as well as many  other bikers. I believe they used it as a rest day so they function better for the rest of the tour. I was smart this time and had my bike in my room and could start directly from there. Up at 5am and  checked my blood levels [...]

Loveland Weight Loss Programs RTR Day 2

Day 2 of Ride the Rockies was my toughest day. It consisted of 85 miles and 7655 feet of climbing . The route went from  Aspen to Copper  and included Independence Pass(12096 ft) and Fremont Pass(11,318 ft).

I was on my bike by 645 am riding towards  the first pass. Only water in my bike bottles, but I did drink one bottle with an electrolyte tab prior [...]
