Ride the Rockies – day 6

Pagosa Springs to Alamosa billed as 87 miles over Wolf Creek Pass.  This is the day I about bailed out, not wanting to climb another almost 11,000 foot pass.  My conscience got the better of me so I did not say that I did not do the whole ride.  I left about a hour after Nicole so she finished way ahead of me this day.  Wolf Creek Pass was a long climb but not as bad as Grand Mesa.  The down hill was a little scarey because the wind was gusting very hard.  I felt like I was sand blasted on one of the curves from the road gravel.  One rider was blown off his bike and hurt seriously, so this down hill was not a fun as the others.  After the down hill it was a pretty flat run in to Alamosa.  I think this distance was 91 miles rather than 87 miles.  I was glad at the end of the day I did not get a sag to the top of the pass so I did complete the whole day.
