Very cool.

My dad rode a Ride the Rockies multi-day colorado ride twice. My brother rode it every year he could get in. (Entry by lottery.) I think he had 7 or 8 rides. He also added the Tour'D'Wyoming to his summer fun his last year.

It's a cool accomplishment. Good Job, BrdofPray!

DD is an avid cyclist (good thing as she doesn't own a car) and has been trying to get me back on a bicycle for years. Maybe I'll pump up the tires...but even so, can't imagine going too far. When we lived in Germany in the late '90s, I did enjoy riding my bike into town to shop on nice days. But haven't used it much at all since then.

Super. You are an inspiration to us all! While I shouldn't ride, I'll walk and extra mile tomorrow.

Sounds like a great cycling event I'd love to ride someday.
