The Boulder Bike Culture Meetup‘s first little social intro to bike touring went pretty well I think. Didn’t lose anyone, no injuries that I know of, no major mechanical issues, only one flat tire. Tail wind and gorgeous weather on the way up. Good food, good beer. Naps and gracious hostesses. Tail wind and deteriorating weather on the way back, capped off by hail and sleet. A well rounded taster.
Oh yeah, and I took some pictures… It takes a while to load, but I think it’s worth it.

I had a really great time riding with everybody and am really, really looking forward to the next one! Maybe camping up near the 4th of July trail head?
Always enjoy reading touring ideas and comparing them to the way I go about riding. Good advice in your other article on starting touring bikes and gear. I really applaud your thoughts on rides and equipment, not to obcess about any of it. Reading many rticals that talk about bikes for instance, suggesting that a rookie shall out $3,000 for a touring bike is nuts. Thanks for the common sense.
