30 May - 30 miles (50 km) - 1000 ft (300 m) total altitude loss with a lot of ups and downs to get here. Route began with a gravel trail not really suited for a loaded touring bicycle. This was followed by twenty miles of "gently rolling hills" - not really. Not nearly the amount of climbing as yesterday, but I was clearly not recovered from that ride.
Plan was to get as close as possible to Pueblo and I guess that is what I did, although I planned to be a bit closer. Tomorrow's profile looks a little different, downhill with none of the whoopdee doo's of today's ride.
Choices, choices, choices
The light at the end of the tunnel is the end of the gravel trail and the beginning of the Colorado Springs hills
Trail isolated from high speed traffic
10 miles of gravel trail not suited for a fully loaded touring bike
The room was indicative of how I felt by the time I got here
