FC: Pikes Peak by Bike

1: Merry Christmas mom! I know you truly enjoyed your bike ride down Pikes Peak in July 2011 so I'm creating this photo book so you can continue to relive the experience through pictures. Enjoy!

2: For mom's birthday and Mother's Day gift in 2011 I arranged a bike ride down America's mountain, Pikes Peak, in Colorado Springs, CO.

3: The trip was through Challenge Unlimited. They handled everything. We arrived around 7:00 a.m. in the morning and enjoyed breakfast while they loaded the bikes onto the vans.

4: We then took off and headed up the Pikes Peak Highway, a 20-mile ride, to the top of Pikes Peak.

5: Pikes Peak's elevation is 14,110 ft. Our trip was in July but it was pretty chilly at the top. | We arrived at the summit before the first group of cog railway guests.

6: There is the cog making its way up...

7: ...and two other ways to ascend.

8: After a safety talk, helmet fitting and bathroom break the descent begins.

9: We made multiple stops along the way.

10: We saw five different life zones each having its own climate, wildlife and vegetation.

12: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words | The switch backs we coasted down.

13: Cherish The Ones You Love | Snow in July.

14: We had trouble trying to think of the last time we participated in an activity just the two of us so this was a great bonding experience.

15: Crystal Reservoir

17: Part of the group.

18: View of Highway 24 looking east.

20: Cheers! | The descent took us to the Wines of Colorado for lunch.
