It’s the number one question everybody asks when you get here, “Have you been on the mountain yet?” Today the answer was yes…
The day started with a group ride from the hotel, a police escorted scoot across town that would have been the highlight of most peoples day if we weren’t headed to Pikes Peak. We gathered up at the gate and headed for a stop by the reservoir. Oddly, it’s from there, not the summit that you get the first grasp of how large this mountain is. The team is here and they show me where the finish is, pointing at a flat spot on the mountain crest far, far away and high overhead. It doesn’t even look like the same mountain, rather another one nearby. Greg Tracy and Carlin Dunne are planning to lead us to the summit and there’s a bar-b-que lunch after.
