Team member Johnny participated in the 39th Annual Iron Horse Classic in Durango, Colorado, Memorial Day weekend. Our western-most team member, Johnny used the event to train for his trip to Iowa for RAGBRAI 2010. After training on the hills of Colorado, Johnny should have no problems navigating the stretches of Iowa!
Johnny reports that 38 of the 50 miles he rode were 6-7% grade rollers. Approximately 1300 riders participated in this year’s Iron Horse Classic, making it quite the event. The photo below is from Molas Pass. After Molas Pass, participants rode seven miles all downhill into Silverton.
