My Future Lies Before Me

This Sunday, Howard and a bunch of new cycling friends (Club Hypoxia: "Oxygen or Altitude, Pick One") will climb Lookout Mountain above Golden, Colorado. It's a 5-mile 1,460-foot climb to the Buffalo Bill Museum & lookout.

We'll start in Wheat Ridge, climb gradually to Golden, climb a little less gradually past Colorado School of Mines, then begin climbing not gradually at all after that.

Actually, it's an average 5 1/2% grade up those last five miles, so it'll hurt, but it'll be the good kind of hurt. Click on the Gmaps Pedometer image above to see it really big.
