From Denver, CO, to Minneapolis, MN, to Grand Rapids, MI (not pictured), to Muskegon, MI – it’s been a beautiful 24 hours.
It’s confirmed – the Lookout Mountain trail from Windy Saddle in Lookout Mountain is short-term visitor approved. Not too long, not too high in elevation (reaches just over 7k feet), and has some of the best views!
We tried to make it to Silverthorn (from Denver) lastnight, but that was a big, fat fail. With the amount of snow and pile-ups on i70, there was no way.
We finally made it up earlier this afternoon and are now hanging out in a beautiful condo off of Ryan Gulch Rd.

Saturday, September 13th, marked the day of the 8th annual Babes in Bikeland event, bringing over 400 women / transgender / femme bike riders together to roam the streets of Minneapolis.
Take care to note that this was a 20+ mile bike race, the distance depending on the efficiency of your mapped route. With both a manifest of destinations and a time limit provided, how you finished (or mapped your route) was up to you! This is no small feat for even those familiar with the territory of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. So, you may ask, what made so many individuals want to participate in this annual race?
