Saturday Ride – The House on the Hill

Followed Bear Creek from the Platte up to Evergreen, CO. Had intended to check out the ride up to Mt. Squaw, but went South rather than North, in Evergreen. Oh well, looked like I just missed the rodeo parade in town. Had legs for a little more climbing, so went up over Grapevine Rd and looped back to Morrison for a Dale’s Pale Ale.

Surly has something new in the oven.

Maximum Enthusiasm

Vladimir Isaichev of team Katusha won stage 5 of the Tour de Suisse. Really enjoyed how psyched he was to win the first stage of his career. Today Peter Sagan took his 4th stage win in the sprint of this years Tour de Suisse. Shaping up much like the Tour of California for him. Will be exciting to see Sagan and Cav go head to head in a couple weeks.

Salvagetti Bike Shop Moving!

It’s that time of year, Salvagetti is moving again. In July they will be moving the operation to their new location at 3800 Irving St up in the Highlands/Sunnyside. Would seem to me that they’re giving up a prime location where the main Denver trails intersect downtown, but I guess time will tell how this move goes.
