Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail, May 26th. 2019
We went to Glenwood Springs, CO. and rode the Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail on May 26th. 2019 the last time we rode this trail was 14 years ago in 2005 on our old Fuji Monterey 3.0 Comfort bicycles!
We now ride our recumbent trike tandem and found the ride just a beautiful and fun but a bit harder as we've hit 60+, yep slower but still worth the effort! The trail rides mostly right next to the Colorado River and the water was flowing hard and awesome looking. It's 16 miles one way since we rode a part of the Rio Grande Trail to get to the start of the GWCBT we ended up with 38.5 miles for the day, our longest ride on the recumbent tandem trike so far!! :) Here's some photos, Enjoy!
