Colorado and New Mexico were Amazing!
I was out in CO and NM for two weeks and it was great. I went out and did a few warm up rides before the Firecracker 50 in Breck and did a bunch afterwards. There were probably 7 rides overall and mostly over 10,000 feet. One ride was from Molas Pass to Engineer mountain on the Colorado Trail and it was some of the most breathtaking trail and some of the worst. Imagine snow for a mile followed by mud for 3. Not fun. But the other sections were cool. I eventually was doing better with the elevation but still was hurting. I got to stop by Pajarito Mountain outside of Los Alamos to ride for a bit and then take one of their downhill trails which was a blast. Nothing like flying off a jump or riding some of the ladder bridges in matchy matchy lycra. The downhillers were not amused. :-)
