Where Was Bill?
Last year I rode more than 11,000 miles on my
summer jaunt. But 2010 was a chance to take several shorter
rides--circumnavigation of San Francisco Bay, Yosemite and the biggie of the
summer, a 3,792 ride through the Rockie Mountains, then a trip through
Wyoming to Cody and over Beartooth Highway. Beartooth is one of those
famous motorcycling roads full of switchbacks and altitude.
One of thrilling parts of this trip was a
ride up to the top of Mt. Evans in Colorado. This is the highest paved
road in North America and starts where most roads end--8,000 feet. In
14 miles it climbs to more than 14,000 feet. It's the most technical
and difficult road I've ever ridden.
