I had a long hard ride on Sunday, MLK Eve. The goal was to ride at least 4 hrs, but longer if I felt ok and the weather held up. I ended up riding. the Peak to Peak, From Near Black Hawk, CO to HWY 7, then back. There are a lot of climbs and very little if any flat locations. With each hill I climbed, there was some down hill, but the recover during the decent only lasted a few minutes at most, where the climbs lasted 10-20 min mostly and one 45 min.
- 73 miles
- 7500 ft climbing
- 6300 cal burn
I used two bottles of Hammer Nutrition Perpetuem (1 serving each) and two Clif bars (yum).
