Default The Next Adventure

Getting ready for the next adventure, I have a week to play.

The plan is to try to complete 4 separate IBA rides with a stop at the top of Mount Evans, Death Valley and the top of Pikes Peak.

Should be fun! Can't wait!!

The rides won't be completed back to back, I will have a little time between the rides but they all must be completed in a week so that I can get back to work.

Rollin"
Do you have insomnia ?

I love to ride, but whether I am at home or traveling; when 10 PM comes, my eye want to be shut and sleeping.

I do like to ride at night, twice I have started IBA rides at 8:00 pm.

That almost make sense. Riding somewhere you are a bit familiar with to somewhere you are not and it would be daylight.

Yes. On the first ride I will be traveling across Iowa and Nebraska during the night and by daylight I will be in Colorado.

Also at night it's cooler, it's quiet and a lot less traffic.
