Oops, I did it again...

Pretty in PinkI must be crazy.

I signed up for yet one more bike ride this year.

This one's less than 50 miles, but it involves 7,000 feet of climbing. In a day. And a short section of dirt road. Oh, well, my road bike is part mountain bike now, right? I can do this, right?

Ever since I found out there are 14ers (mountains reaching 14,000 feet or higher), I've wanted to ride up Pikes Peak instead of hike it -- because there's a road. But bicycles have been forbidden.

Until now.

So here I go again. I must be nuts.

  3. No, you're not nuts, that's for sure. With scenery like in your outstanding photos, you'll have a blast!!

    Wow, those are amazing photos. My husband is talking about getting me a "real" camera (SLR) for when I'm not on my bike. When I see your photos, I think it might be worth it. However, I'm sure that your eye has a lot to do with how amazing they are.
