Hoosier Pass, Colorado

July 18th, 2012: At the top of the highest pass on th TransAm route. Skip yet again rode the whole thing and I walked a little way. I don’t know whether to blame the early hour, the altitude, the hairpin turns, the grade, or the traffic – or to just admit that Skip will always win!

Coming down the pass which was a lot more fun than going up it!

    Hi Molly:

    Keep at it…victory can still be yours! It’s tiring just thinking about biking up to 11,539 feet.
    Really enjoy following Skip and your cross-country bike journey.

    Very cool!!

  4. I hope the slow climb has gotten you somewhat acclimated. Spectacular scenery and cool people your reward for such hard work. I remember not-enough-air from trying to push-start a car at 14,000′, so I think biking at 11,000 is amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  7. Beautiful. I got a thrill crossing the Continental Divide years ago in my RV. And the highest pass on another route was 12,000 plus feet, with snow of the berms in July, plus a bit of panting to climb the bank to reach it. Gus
