Last Weekend: Fairplay, Breckenridge & Frisco

  Last weekend I had the opportunity to frolic in the mountains with my wife and a couple of friends. We had perfect timing to see the Aspen’s leaves changing and somehow lucked out all weekend on gorgeous weather. If you are ever looking for a great weekend trip, or even a long day trip, check out the bike path from Breckenridge to Frisco (or beyond!)

Review: Buffalo Creek Mountain Biking

Back in mid-July, Emily and I finally made the quick trip to Buffalo Creek for some mountain biking. This trail system has a lot of hype around it and within a few miles of our route I realized why.

2014 Breck Epic: Wheeler Pass

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. It took 5 days but it finally hit me. I am tired. Stage 5, Wheeler Pass, is a deceivingly hard stage.

Today we rode about 42 miles and 6500′ of climbing and was reminded that “it ain’t called the Breck Epic Tickle Fight”.
