Just a warning - Summit County
 
The Children's Hospital Courage Classic Bike Tour is this weekend in summit county...Sat, Sun, and Mon. There will be 2000 riders in Summit county this weekend, so if your planning to be up there and you don't want to get caught in the tour, you may want to check out www.couragetours.com for tour routes.

The first day is pretty much the Copper triangle...Copper to Leadville over Freemont, Leadville to Vail over battle mountain (this is where I saw a bunch of you a few years ago while I was riding), then finally Vail to Copper.

The second day is a tour from Copper to Keystone, over Swan Mtn and back to Copper...there is a Ute Pass option for a longer ride.

Day three is from Copper through Breck up Hoosier Pass and back to Copper.

If your not on a bike, it is madness and can be very frustrating...especially with the Tour Mentality many riders get. They feel that the tour owns the road and they have the right-of-way...and they do stupid things.

Be careful if your up there!
