After a few days touring the highest elevations on the route (12,000+ft) I limped into Salida, Colorado. I’m going to re-assess my fitness from here. No mechanical issues, the bike is rock solid, it’s the rider! It’s been a real test of my physical limits, and I’m making sure my limits are not going to be a burden on others—specifically, SaR! Here are a few pictures since Abiquiu.
