Day 49 Pueblo to Royal Gorge

After racing to Pueblo yesterday and getting there at 10 15 AM to have the bike serviced I had a forced late start due to lower bowel issues . Once these were sorted out with the help of Imodium there was the small matter of  the  days 60 mile ride into the Rockies. A few miles of flat  to get us off the plain and then we started climbing again. And if today's gradients are anything to go by the Rockies will be a lot easier than the hills in the east. Greg was also out of sorts today with the same problems so it was an easy paced day rolling into camp about 5 PM.
As it is a rest day tomorrow Jason, my motel room mate took the initiative to book a cabin on a classic retro catavan site. Photographs will be available for my caravan enthusiast friends.
So thats about it for today. Tomorrow is  a white water rafting day.
