On Sunday my plan was to go to Crested Butte with the family. Mikayla and Joe would go skiing while Lily and I hung out with a friend. Then on the way home, I would ride my bike while everyone else drove home. Crested Butte is about 30 miles from Gunnison and sits at 8800 feet. This means I would go down to Gunnison which sits at 7700 feet.
I was worried a little bit about the wind as I started out especially when it almost knocked me down but I kept with it hoping and hoping that it would stop. Finally after 11 miles of fighting the wind and fighting to stay on my bike I had Joe stop and I hoped in the truck. As we started heading home we passed a guy on his bike but he was going to Crested Butte so the wind was pushing him instead of going against him. Maybe next time I will ride from Gunnison to Crested Butte instead.
