Epic Ride: Mount Evans Hill Climb

When I moved to Colorado a couple of years ago I had heard that people ride their bikes to the top of Mount Evans, but I for one was totally not interested. The ride starts at about 7600′ and ends at 14,130′. No thanks, this flatlander was having trouble going up the stairs at 5430′. […]
