Rocky Mountain High

It's going to be a beautiful day in Frisco, site of the ride start: 74 degrees and sunny, winds out of the NW at 5 to 10 mph and 33% humidity. Gotta love it! It's so beautiful here -- mountain sides are lush green and the tops are snowy white. We're heading out to Breckenridge to scope out some of our favorite haunts from the "Greatest Birthday Bash Ever 2007" then we'll return to Frisco to put the bikes together and get in a short ride.

So far, so good on altitude adjustment. We learned a lot about preparing for altitude: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, consume megadoses of antioxidants and no alcohol, well, maybe one bottle of fat tire ;-) We're trying out a product called Altitude Advantage. We've been taking it for four days and we're feeling pretty good. We're even successfully fighting a nasty summer cold, so something's working.

Hope to have photos to share later today.
