Summer Start 2014

June was a busy month.  I finished the CTS series, riding the last ride of the series on July 5th.  It was a celebration ride.  We did the 50 mile full lake loop with a BBQ at the finish.  It was a beautiful day and a great ride.  In the month of June Joe, Jackie, and me visited my sister and her husband in Basalt, CO where I got to ride on the Rio Grande trail from my sister's house to Aspen and back.  Forty miles out and back on a beautiful trail with gorgeous views of rivers and mountains of the Aspen country side.  We were only there for three days so I didn't get to ride on some of the roads I wanted to but I will be back to visit again and for a much longer time so I can ride all the roads!  After Basalt we drove through Wyoming and into Montana where we visited Joe's brothers and sister before heading back home.  

I will be riding as much as I can through July and August both leading rides and riding on my own too.  I have one big ride this summer the RSVP on August 15th and 16th.  Start is in Seattle.  On day one we cycle to Bellingham on day two we continue on to Vancouver, BC.  This will be my first RSVP and I am looking forward to it very much.

I've also been doing a lot of riding in my neighborhood.  The weather has been beautiful.
