Adventures of a Rescue Rider :: Day 5

So, if you have been following our blog posts this week, you are starting to get a pretty good idea of what our days look like: get up way too early, ride bicycles all day, eat, go to bed… Today was much the same but also very special. We started the morning cruising along the Colorado […]
