Day 53 Rest day in Breckenridge

Today is going to be a lazy day. I had the bike serviced a few days ago but think perhaps it was me that needed the service!  So far today I have been to the Post Office, lounged around at Starbucks and bought some stuff at the Patagonia shop to replace the cheap Walmart stuff that I will now use for bike cleaning.

On going stomach issues but some of the group have been affected by the Altitude. Greg has had to drop down to Denver for a couple of days, Luckily he had a family visit that made this possible. Some of the others have gone cycling! Are they Mad?.  As I write AJA by Steely Dan is playing. One of my favourite Dan tracks.

This is very much a tourist town with far too much retail therapy temptation. Also very expensive compared to the America that we've passed through. Need to move on soon.

I shall probably spend the rest of the afternoon in the Health Spa where there is a hot tub, sauna, steam room and some excetcise equipment that I will NOT be using.


  1. Robert, if you get chance email me a half way progress report (300 words or so) and a high res pic and we'll send something out to local media about how far you've got and how much money raised so far.


  2. These pics bring back LOTS of happy skiing memories! Enjoy your rest day, and well done for passing the half way mark AND the Continental Divide!

  3. Divide and conquer
    Riding amongst the
    Rockies and stones
    Those aching bones !
