Buena Vista Bike Fest

This is a fun event put on by the Colorado Springs Cycling Club which we belong to. A lot of effort is made to make this a fun event. The views during the ride are incredible.
The ride around Turquoise Lake were so pleasant and very little traffic. But the grade seemed to go on and on as we reached the high point. As you can see I needed plenty of pictures aka rest stops.
Once we made it to the Summit, everyone would stop and put clothes on and zip up for the ride down.
After the decent and arriving in Leadville, CO, there were great volunteers with lunch for us. Couldn't sit too long since we had another climb around the Mineral Belt and didn't want to get stiff.
After the ride and return to Buena Vista, there was beer, BBQ and music. We slept like babies that night.
