Today up and over Rabbit Ears Pass, about 9,600 ft at 8 and 9% grade, with a touch of 10%. Not bad but it seemed to go on forever. The shoulder has almost been a non issue until the climb today, and still not too bad.
I called my nephew, Brad, who lives in Steamboat Springs; he was able to meet me on the route and we had a nice visit until the sweep team reached us and I had to take off to stay in front of them.
More work tomorrow to get 82 miles to Idaho Springs, then 52 miles on to Denver.
