Here's what the brochure for the Courage Classic says: Enjoy our three-day, 157-mile route from Leadville to Summit County and back over quiet, back country roads and challenging climbs, all with gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains.
"Quiet back country roads" !!! Check out this map. Vail Pass is 10,666 feet high! 157 miles in the Rocky Mountains folks. This is NOT an easy bike ride. But it gives the participants a taste of what it must be like to be a child struggling at Children's Hospital.
Middle Daughter's boyfriend participated in this event. He and his team raised $1300 dollars! Yay! Don't they look happy, with the Cyclist Magazine with his picture on the cover, and his medal?!
We sure are proud of this young man!!
