Rode Vail Pass with Michelle. Always have wanted to try this and was shocked that it really isn't that hard. We did the east side and I hear the west is tougher though.We'll do that next time. We rode from Silverton through Frisco, up through Copper on the way to the top of Vail Pass. We came back down to Frisco and rode over to and up Swan Mtn, which while short is a brutal 7%, after that it was pretty much downhill all the way back around Dillon Res. That wasn't enough for Michelle though, she opted to climb the hill back up to the condo in Wildernest, another almost 3 miles of 5% while I colleced the car and cheered her on along the way. She did awesome. Next time I'll have to try it too.
