Copper Triangle

Well...we did it! My mom and I did the Copper Triangle over the weekend! The ride included 80 miles and 3 mountain passes! By far, it was the hardest ride I have ever done, but I really did enjoy it! :) Yes, Vail pass was long and hard...but I would do it all over again! My mom and I rode at our own paces, but we eventually met up so we could finish together!
My mom was so nice to get us a hotel room in Copper Mtn. for the night before. It was fun to spend some time with her. We walked around Copper Village, found a great place to eat pasta, and just relaxed before waking up at 3am for the ride! We had our alarm set for 4:15, but neither of us could sleep, so we just got up to drink tea and stretch before the ride! Thanks mom for a wonderful weekend! We did it!

Check out the course and all the photos I took along the way!

Congratulations Ash! The ride looks absolutely beautiful but I can't imagine 80 miles and 3 mountain passes...I can hardly make it through 60 mins of spin class. You're amazing!!!
