Day 52 Fairplay to Breckenridge

Today was a short day to give us a day and a half layover in Breckenridge but first we had to get over the Hoosier Pass, the highest point of our trip at 11,542'. We were also joined by Frank, a big advocate of the Transam route and the author of our exceedingly good Q sheets, who drove up from Denver and treated us all to breakfast. Wally, another ACA leader known by some of the group from previous tours also cycled with us.
Once we had all made it to the top we took the group photograph and then enjoyed a magnificent 11 mile descent  into Breckenridge.
Breckenridge is of course a world famous ski resort , where I skied some 15 years ago on my only previous visit to the USA.

Miles Today 23
Total         2563


  1. I may have been just about able to manage the 11 mile decent into Breckenridge ....... provided there was a tail wind !

    We remember the skiing very well - wish you had not reminded us that it was 15 years ago.
