I had breakfast with some of my friends this morning. One of them started talking about wanting to do Ride the Rockies next summer, but feeling that she couldn't do it! She is in great shape and has run marathons before, I really encouraged her to try it... and then I found myself saying "Gosh! I have always wanted to do that!" And then I found myself saying "Gosh! I should try to do that!" and then "Gosh, I am really going to think about this."
"What Is Ride The Rockies
The Denver Post Ride The Rockies is an annual bicycle tour that takes 2,000 cyclists on a 6-7 day ride on paved roads through Colorado's Rocky Mountains each June." from their website. The route is 422 miles this year. It varies somewhat each year because the route is different each year. Holy Cow. Can I really do this? I would definitely have to purchase a new bike. I have a mountain bike and a hybrid now. I would have to get a serious road bike.
I wonder, can I really do this?
