Well, my peoples. My fine, fine peoples. Tomorrow we saddle up with the Prairie Dawg Leader (whose voice I have borrowed for this post) for a heaping triple helping of hypoxic lusciousness known as the Triple Bypass.

We'll do a little of this


on Juniper Pass.

Then we'll do a little of this


on Loveland Pass.

Lastly, we'll do a little of this
vail 2

Vail 1

on Vail Pass.

120 miles and over 10,000 feet of verticle gain.

But who's counting?

Of course, when you're riding with Prairie Dawg Leader, costuming and the concomittant statement of intent is everything. So, all the appropriate appendages are shaved smoothe (inappropriate appendages staying as they were intended to stay) and I gots myself a new cycling Jersey that looks like this:

Back in Black

At the end of tomorrow, I'll either be a slightly more refined form of iron, or I'll be a mushy puddle of canine doo doo alongside some Colorado byway.

Wish me luck!

The pictures never do the pitch justice, do they?

Rock on with your bad self and have a great ride! Ditto to the PDL.

And here I thought Carrie was riding, not cheering.

Terrific mountain passes, great company and a cool bike jersey.

Just stay off the highway to hell and skip the exit to Sin City and you will be doing the bad boy boogie in no time!

We were supposed to shave?! Crap! You guys forgot to tell me! And it's true, there IS no inappropriate place for hair removal!

Want. That. Jersey.

Have fun climbing. And climbing some more. And then climbing until you bleed from the eyes.
