Winter Park Weekend

This past weekend, we traveled to winter park for a bike race I had signed up for and some summer alpine playtime.

The drive up was pretty easy.  We headed off Friday afternoon and checked into the Winter Park Mountain Lodge.  Then we headed into town so I could pick up my rental bike from Ski Depot.  After getting settled we headed out for dinner at The Peak restaurant.

Saturday was race day.  I cruised down to the venue by 6:40 AM for the race briefing, waiver signing, etc.  Crossfit Golden members made up 45 of the 130 person field.  They had a couple of tents set up and were cooking and had beverages all day.  It was really fun to hang out with people socially.  I also really appreciated my family coming out and cheering me on.  I am glad I was able to return the bike Saturday, rather than having to try to get it back Sunday morning.

After the race we grabbed a pizza for dinner and then hung out at the pool and hot tub at the hotel.

Sunday was family fun day.  Despite cooler weather we headed to the resort for the alpine slide, ropes course, rock wall climbing and putt-putt.  The weather rolled in so we ended up getting rain checks for another visit.

The drive back was tough, but the family did really well in the car.
