Some rides are rides, some rides are races. I've got pages about both kinds here. I am interested in lots of different types of cycling, but my favorite kind is the long mountain bike ride™. Big loops, over hill and dale, all danged day if possible. I live in Salida, Colorado. The best thing about Salida is that there's lots of wide open mountain country nearby. I like to leave from the house on my bike, which often involves spending some time riding pavement at the start.
