And We’re Off: High Country 1200K

If you’re reading this, we’re off riding the High Country 1200K!!!

Rider updates will happen on the High Country blog as the event unfolds.

Felkerino (@dailyrandonneur) and I (@gypsybug) will post updates of our adventure via Twitter, using the hash tag #hc1200. Fellow DC Randonneur Bill (@bicyclic) is riding, too, so be sure to check in on his progress as well!

Below are a few pre-event pics for your enjoyment. They are:

A glimpse of our 1200K cue sheet;

Felkerino ascending James Canyon;

The Co-Motion in Jamestown, CO;

Jimmy’s Gunnar, complete with The Acorn Boxy Rando bag;

Bill B. and his Trek at bike inspection;

Jeff B. and his Salsa Casseroll prepped for a pre-ride; and

Mordecai and his Rivendell Romulus at Sunday’s bike inspection.

I’m using my iPod Touch to post this. It’s rather handy, yet rudimentary, so you may have to do some caption matching to the photos.

As always, thanks for reading and to all who’ve wished us well. Talk to you soon, and I hope everybody has an excellent week.
