Two weeks ago we embarked on the Dave’s Bachelor Party 1 adventure. Rob got the idea that we would ride our bikes from Ned to Winter Park, spend the night celebrating Dave’s last weekend of singledom, then ride back the next day. So on a bright Saturday morning 5 of us loaded up on the 7:10 bus to Ned loaded down with full packs of gear and clothes for the weekend. We rode the Jenny Creek trail up to the Guinn Mountain Hut where we took our first photo break. From there it was a pretty short ride over Rollins Pass to the top. For the last pitch Rob suggest “Eye of the Tiger” as the theme for the last pitch, so that explains the music in the slideshow. We of course got lost exploring on the way down to Winter Park, which led to a long 7 hour first day. We were really hungry, and dreaming of BBQ food, so we successfully manifested a BBQ as soon as we rolled into Frasier. Ryan easily won the Turkey Leg Eating Championship.

The plan was to take it easy at the bar that night in the name of riding well the next day. But as it turned out, the annual post-Sturgis Winter Park Harley Biker-Fest was in town this weekend. Once those bikers got wind of Dave’s Bachelor party, a “Three Wise Men” shot was served, a body shot from Tattooed Biker Chick was realized, and next thing you know it’s two in the morning and Dave is black-out drunk. The 8 AM wake up call hurt a lot. The 30 minute climb in the wrong direction hurt even more. But the 15 mile climb to Rollins pass with 30lb packs hurt the most. The grand plan to ride singletrack back into Ned was a dwindling reality. We found a new direct way back via the Eldora ski area, but we still managed to get pounded by a thunderstorm on the way back down into town. The first day offered great riding. The night in Winter Park provided endless entertainment. And the suffering on the way back to Boulder solidified the event as an Epic Weekend. I wish I took more pictures to fill up the slideshow, but I didn’t. I wisely left the camera at home for the night out at the bar! This account is brief, but I needed to get it posted before we leave tomorrow for our next epic riding adventure. Plus, Dave’s wedding is now in the books and I still have to edit those photos!
