    Dillon, CO

    In just one week we’re due to catch a train in Denver that will take us to our one-time home of Chicago to reconnect with family and friends. But, Rett recently learned that her BFF Josh is leaving the Chicago area after a decade-long stint, for a return to Arizona. We had seen him during… Read more…

    Hot Sulphur Springs, CO to Dillon, CO

    Adventure Cycling’s TransAmerica Route directs us downstream and west along the Colorado River from Hot Sulphur Springs to Kremmling, and then upstream along the Blue River as it rises southeast to the Dillon Reservoir. The short bit of riding we did on US-40 yesterday wasn’t very fun with its heavy traffic, so doing more of… Read more…

    Walden, CO to Hot Sulphur Springs, CO

    We headed straight south out of Walden, with a plan to exit the mountain-encircled North Park basin via yet another crossing of the Continental Divide at Willow Creek Pass.

But there seemed to… Read more…

    Rawlins, WY to Riverside, WY

    Five miles of riding empty I-80 frontage roads brought us to Sinclair, a company town named after the oil company (whose iconic green dinosaur may be completely unfamiliar to my readers east of the Mississippi). The town has an impressive (if empty-feeling) Spanish-style center, with buildings whose stature seems too large for its 500-person population.… Read more…

    Jeffrey City, WY to Rawlins, WY

    The alarm went off at 4:30am, to give us the best chance of avoiding the day’s strongest winds. But the whistling coming from the window in our dark room told us that we had already failed. Oh well, nothing to do but get going anyway, and at least our early-rise means that if we’re reduced… Read more…
