I try to keep myself in shape by doing fun things outside and eating as well as possible. And, sometimes I look around me and think… “hmmm, I’m the least healthy person in this room.” THAT is a great luxury and benefit of living here. Sometimes when I see someone who seems to be glowing and vibrating with good energy, I simply ask them… “what have you been doing lately?” And, just like that, I usually come away with some tip or trick that I didn’t know before. This is in fact how I have learned about green smoothies, local bike rides, the benefits of eating blackberries, cross fit and the list goes on. We have the benefit of living in an area that is like a big  playground, providing opportunities for outdoor adventures of all different kinds. We also enjoy a core community of people who pursue these activities. This is a great combination… making us the healthiest county in the US of A. See the article linked below.

One of my favorite bike rides near Breckenridge is a circumnavigation of Dillon Reservoir. This time lapse video I made of one such ride attempts to convey how beautiful this ride really is. The ride takes you from the rec path in Breckenridge, North to Farmer’s Corner (where the high school is) and on to Frisco… via our recently opened new alignment… near where the old two lane highway used to be. From Frisco, the ride heads to Dillon over the Dam Road, then into Summit Cove and over Swan Mountain. The views are astounding… and they lesson the sting of the hard work being done on the bike. Here is the Strava if you are curious about the route. It’s about 32 miles round trip from Breckenridge to Breckenridge. A shorter version, about 20 miles, can be done by parking anywhere near the lake.

Mountain Bike Ride in Breckenridge I try to get out on a bike ride in the summer around 3-4 times per week: sometimes mountain, sometimes road. This helps me get my exercise, relieves stress and gets me out in the beautiful mountains. But, this time of year, the mountain biking season usually comes to an abrupt end. You can see in the video that I ran into a large, impassable snow field. Mountain biking after the snow starts to fall becomes difficult and undesirable, as well as being bad for the trails. So, we try to take advantage of the chances we get to have one last ride in the woods for the season. Was this one it? We don’t know. And, that’s part of the fun. We never know exactly when the season will end. But, the good news is that when it does, we have skiing to look forward to.
