This summer my dad and I went out to Colorado to participate in Death Ride Tour. The ride was 240 miles, 16,000 ft of climbing, over 3 days in South West Colorado. The ride began in Silverton, CO, with the first night spent in Telluride, and the next in Durango. The ride was some of the most beautiful and toughest riding I have ever done in my life. The heat and the elevation were some of the factors that made it so hard. I loved riding in Colorado, and hope to go back out there soon to train.
