In June, Iron Velo contributors Adam Perry and Irene Joyce completed their first Ride The Rockies, a 460-mile trek across Colorado. Climbing legendary mountain passes, the couple were among the very few cyclists on the 30th-annual Ride The Rockies using steel bikes (a Surly and a Bianchi), and perhaps the only two making their way on flat pedals.
This month’s issue of Bicycle Times – available next week on newsstands at Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble, etc. – features Adam’s recap of the experience. Here is a little preview.
