Day 36 – Ordway to Pueblo West, CO – 65 miles
Day 37 – Pueblo West to Guffey, CO – 84 miles
(very windy & over 5k ft of climbing)
The rockies weren’t going to let us in without a fight. Saturday we had a easy ride into Pueblo and enjoyed the town and some rest before our start into the rockies.
We did enjoy the town but rest was hard to find since it was Memorial weekend and we found a new level of sleep disturbence by some very “dark pink neck” folks jamming what can only be called country rap music by someone of the name of Colt Ford (real name Jason, but what better way to market yourself to rednecks then the colt 45 and ford trucks; don’t waste your time looking him up).
Sunday we fought 25mph head/side winds for the first 30 miles until we made a turn North into the heart of the rockies. The riding was tough, but it was harder to find food for a overnight spot as we finally settled into a small ranch on the map.
