This weekend I signed up to volunteer for a big organized bike ride in the mountains called the Triple Bypass. The challenging and popular ride gets its name from the three main mountain passes that are covered from Evergreen to Avon in a range of 120 miles. We worked from 9am until 5pm serving the hungry road bikers and enjoying every moment of it! Barbara and Kathleen (her 90 year old mother) are in charge on this day. Barbara is the CFO for a healthy and tasty probiotic drink (sold in Whole Foods) called GoodBelly: go try it if you haven’t already!I drove up early Friday morning to grab a good campsite. Luckily, I arrived when I did because there were only 3 decent ones left in the whole area as for spots with a water view. It was right in between Frisco and Breckenridge, so I spent a little time in both mountain towns. One of the places I chose was Broken Compass Brewery. They had an amazing Coconut Porter (their prized beer I sampled) and Chocolate Stout (which I chose for my pint). I enjoyed the atmosphere and food truck outside as well. It was a quite a lively place all Friday afternoon, as I hung out a while and read my new big book called Awaken the Giant Within and also did some journaling while sippin’ on a good brew.
Lovely new friends made at the campground! We felt like old friend by the time we parted ways 3 days later. Some of them are lucky to be living the great long term RV life I often miss. This was a perfect weekend!
