What's Cool In Road Cycling

Boulder Big Ride with Timmy Duggan & Craig Lewis

Starting downtown from Vecchio’s (which is quite possibly the coolest bike shop there is) a 60 mile loop lay ahead, taking in Super Flagstaff Road, Gross Dam, Gap Road and not to mention a few “Timmy Treats” along the way. Although there wasn’t one climb to really focus on don’t think that means it’s any easier, oh no. It seemed like the road spent a disproportionate amount of time pointing towards the sky and spending the day at an altitude that rivals the highest peaks in Europe was always going to be a ride to remember. Oh……not to mention the gravel. Long live the dirt road!

Special thanks to Timmy and Craig for taking time out to show me around. I can honestly say that you live in one of the best places I’ve been fortunate to explore so far. One day I’ll be back! Until then, I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I did 🙂
