After seeing the weather report on Thursday night, stating that Saturday was going to be warmish but very WINDY, we decided to ride on Friday instead! It was cooler than Thursday only 40 F, chilly breeze but very sunny. We took off up the Pikes Peak Greenway to head West on the Sinton Trail over to head south on the Foothills Trail past the entry way to the Garden of the Gods. Took a couple of photos at the crest of the two uphill grades that looks into the valley!
We rode Foothills till it ends at 31st. St. and then proceeded on the Bike Lane over to Pikes Peak Ave. heading west to 36th. and over to Colorado Ave. bike lane to a little Hot Dog stand, got a good dog and sat at the patio area, YUM. Heading East on the Midland Trail up to 7th. St. with a stop at The Colorado Springs Bike Shop to see if Jo's new MTB triple crankset had finally arrived off "back order" (50+ days!!!) and YES, it's here so we made a apt. to have it put on by our favorite bike tech, Rocky, on Sunday! :) Then over to the Palmer Mesa Greenway and finally a short ride on the Pikes Peak Greenway back to our apartment building!!
