Day 44: Maxing out on elevation to Granby

Today the team rode 65 miles from Idaho Springs to Granby, Colorado!! We climbed for 22 miles today which is our largest consecutive climb so far. We climbed 5,000 feet and reached our max elevation for the whole ride. It’s safe to say it was a pretty eventful day for I4K. Many of us also broke records for max speed downhills as we had also 20 miles of downhill (which should more appropriately be named downmoutain) it was wild, scary and exhilarating!

Special thanks to Maggie’s cousin for hosting us at his amazing house tonight. We have fantastic views of the mountains! Today’s ride dedication was for Maggie’s aunt who is battling breast cancer.

Tomorrow we will climb some more and then we will be in steamboat where we will be camping. If the blogs are not posted it is because I do not have WiFi access.

Song of the day: Come on get higher
Memorable moment: making it to the top of Berthoud pass and looking down to see all that we had climbed. One of the most satisfying feelings on the ride so far!
