I'm currently on Day 4 of Adventure Cycling's Colorado Wildflowers & Rivers tour with my mother. In the past 40-ish hours, I've smiled so much my cheeks ache and I've biked so much that... well, my cheeks ache.
I'll save the full trip report for when I'm fully done with the tour, but here's what I know thus far:
Adventure Cycling Tours Leadership Staff rules.
Our caterer deserves an Olympic medal.
My mother started really riding a bike just six months ago. On this trip, she has been engulfed with so much support and encouragement that she has accomplished feats she never would have dreamed weeks ago.
I will bawl like a baby (from pride) when my mom successfully climbs Vail Pass.
This will not be my last Adventure Cycling tour.
