When we got back to Frisco, we crammed our bikes into Keri and Lisa's rental car and went to Main Street to have the best breakfast at one of the little cafe's in town.....What we didn't tell you is that we took the bus from Leadville to Frisco. We were done with the bike! Our legs and lungs were actually feeling great. It was *other body parts* that were unable to continue. Butt, no shame! :-) We had come up to the mountains and had an outstanding week!
So, we went back to the high school where the ride had started, took the bikes apart, and headed to Denver where our Marriott Courtyard (non-community shower and bed!) awaited. On I-70 we saw a sign for Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. So, still playing the tourists card, we veered off the highway and down the road a little ways, came to the park. Widespread Panic was playing tonight, so the park was closed. (Bummer! I have a cd of the Dave Matthews Band playing there.) But we still managed to block traffic and snap a pic. They really did look red!
