So my company is putting together a team for the MS 150 this year and I have signed up! Wow, now I have to get my bike fixed and get in shape. Yes, I am going to do it on my 40 year old Peugeot, but I will give in and buy a new saddle. It is June 28-29th here in Colorado and it should be a beautiful ride. Wish me luck and if you want to donate to the cause you can check out my fundraising page:

So we decided to enjoy our Easter weekend (3 days!!!) with a big blowout of winter sports. Spring is rapidly arriving in the Denver area and we might be tempted with warmer temperatures to stay at lower altitudes and enjoy biking and boating rather than heading to the mountains. So Friday we headed up for snowshoeing with the dogs, Saturday we rented snowmobiles (neither of us had ever ridden one before) and Sunday we’ll have a final go at the ski slopes at Echo Mountain Park. Here are photos from the first two days.
Dave and I ready to roll!
That is the guy we rented the snowmobiles from coming down the mountain. It doesn’t look that steep in the photo, but it was STEEP. Needless to say, Dave and I did not go up that high.

We were riding back near Jones Pass, very beautiful area.

Checking the sign to make sure we are not lost.
Need a rest along the trail.
