Steamboat

Your vacation planning community


110 miles on a road bike is a long way! Oh yes, I have found and made my home in the pain cave. Did I mention the 2 mountain climbs, which included Rabbit Ears and Gore Pass?  Thanks to Eriksen Cycles Tour de Steamboat, I have an entirely new appreciation for these long distance athletes. Over 350 people of all ages and ability made their way over the Continental Divide and then some. Crazy Folks, they are! Ninety miles an hour on skis is much more comfortable for me.

Seven hours and a couple of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches later, I made it back to Steamboat. Phew!  A few times during my ride I had to remind myself that I actually sign up for these crazy adventures to test my aerobic endurance. Joking aside, I walk (gingerly) away from this ride with a full heart knowing that we all peddled for an incredible cause. The Tour de Steamboat has paired with the Sunshine Kids, a non-profit organization for children with cancer. The partnership creates an event filled with sweat and great intention.

I am proud of our community as they continue to shine with both their athleticism and generosity. It’s no wonder we call it home!

 

If you missed this weekend's ride, don't fret there are many more opportunities which include:

The Steamboat Stinger (July 24), Ride 4 Yellow (August 7) and the USA Pro Cycling Challenge (August 26 & 27).
