With my Elephant Rock Century bike ride tomorrow that rides 100 miles from Castle Rock down to Colorado Springs and back, through the Black Forest, I decided to get the Ducati out today and ride up to Estes Park. I rode up through Boulder to Lyons and then hopped on Colorado 7 through the canyon up to Allens Park where I was not only treated to great roads for a motorcycle ride, but also some fantastic views of Mount Meeker and Longs Peak. I also saw some Elk in a meadow near Rocky Mtn National Park. They were grazing and watching me take their picture. It was a beautiful day here in Colorado. I am looking forward to a nice carb load dinner tonight of pasta and getting some rest before my long bike race tomorrow. I will check in tomorrow and let everyone know how my wife and I fared and what type of times we achieved in riding the 100 miles.
