BoulDurango Days 1 & 2

We headed out from Avery brewery with 9 riders and 3 support folks for the 2010 Tour of BoulDurango. I missed the initial photo's but was able to snap a shot of our first brewery...Coors faded to the floor of the front range below as we climbed lookout mountain for the first climb of the trip. The weather was suprisingly nice as we added elevation with out eye on Tommyknocker. Everyone had a fairly good day in the saddle & Arlo shared a great view with the rest of us as we descended Loukout Mountain. We paralleled Hwy 70 for a while & arrived in one piece at Tommyknocker in time to share brew & food as we watched Contador make waves at the Tour.
