Today we rode from Glenwood to Aspen on the Glenwood Springs Trail and the Rio Grande Trail. The first 6 miles were quite flat. Then after 33 miles of climbing at 2-3% grade the bike trail changed to softly packed gravel for 5 miles. The total climb was 1,716 ft, but over a total of 44 miles, that was barely noticeable. It was a beautiful day, and we stopped for a healthy lunch at the Woody Cooperative Cafe.
