It is always special when I get to take a father and son out on a tour. Jim and his son Ben were the latest duo to go out with me this summer. Jim, an Associate Professor from Harvard Medical School, is on a two week trip across the US from Boston to San Francisco with his family and had one day to spend in Durango. What better way to spend it then with a mountain bike ride with Durango Mountain Bike Tours. Jim and his 14 year old son Ben had only arrived the night before and were still acclimating a bit, however we were able to cover over 15 miles and check out plenty of trails and the town. The fact that Jim commutes 16 miles round trip from his home in Medford, MA to the Harvard campus every day in Boston certainly helped him on the ride.
