Photos of the Capulin 200k Permanent route shot on September 29, 20013 and November 10, 2013.
Sunday was a great day to ride Bishop Castle 200. I started early and rode the counterclockwise Colorado City route. If you like to front load climbing and/or are starting when it’s cold, this is a good way to do the ride. The disadvantage is that traffic on the 15 mile stretch of I-25 is heavier in the afternoon than early morning. The Bishop Castle RUSA permanents are only available from May 1-Oct 31. That’s because the upper elevations can be icy. Even yesterday when the high was 71F and the low just below 32F there were a few sketchy corners near Bishop Castle.
Well maybe the cheese. I didn’t partake, though the Kaas en Ambachten Museum looked like it was open.
After Sunday’s SUP session I took off for a 45 mile ride. It’s true, I really felt like going back to the apartment and having a beer, but there were only so many days to ride. My goal was Gouda, and Sunday afternoon was a lovely time to visit.
Today’s tip, and this one expires soon: download the 3voor12 app and listen to Eefje de Visser‘s new album “Het Is”. Or listen via your web browser at 3voor12. Zij komt uit Gouda, so it’s appropriate she’s featured on this post.
