I Think I Have a Goal
Never been at 14,000 feet before... Rode the first three miles of the Barr Trail which leads to the summit of Pikes Peak. Looks like a doozy, I climbed 2000 of the 7300 vertical feet and didn't feel too bad, of course these were the easy ones. It levels off for a bit and the next steep portion is all between 12,000 and 14,000 feet. I bet that isn't very fun.. I could also lock the bike halfway up and do the rest of the climbing on foot. It's possible to ride to the top, but the last 3 or so miles is pretty much carrying the bike up and then walking it down. Seems like it would be easier to just hike that part.. We'll see.
