Tuesday 5th June 2012 – Steamboat Springs to Walden.

Steamboat Springs to Walden. 63 miles.

Fairy big climb to start the day, I gained another 3000ft. Thought I was at the top at one point as it said western summit, but I only went down for a couple of miles then I was heading up again, eventually got to the top, the eastern summit it was also the continental divide, I think that means that the water now flows to the Atlantic ocean rather than the Pacific ocean.

I’ve only dropped down about a thousand feet to Walden a very small town but with plenty of accommodation and friendly people. Met two other cyclists today who were both Cycling from south to north.

Think I’ve got another biggish climb tomorrow as well.
