Went on a great group ride with 10 others this weekend, riding section 26 of the Colorado Trail up and over Blackhawk Pass. We shuttled up the 9 mile climb up the rutted road of Bolam Pass, which made it nice, starting right on the single track at close to 11,000 feet. All told we covered about 19 mies and almost 2,700 feet of climbing. The 10 miles of downhill from the top of Blackhawk Mountain is some of the best there is. It is EPIC!
