A great weekend with the Fam!
Last Wednesday, my parents and Keren (my brother's girlfriend) flew into Denver. After spending the first part of the week in Winter Park, my little brother and his dog drove up to Boulder to meet us as well. We raced the local CU Short Track then enjoyed a fun evening of catching up. Thursday morning was relaxing with a nice breakfast, some tour watching, bike riding at Valmont, then a trip to Pearl Street. We ended the day with a fun BBQ and watched the 4th of July fireworks.
My mom went to see Todd at Integrative Healing and Acupuncture first thing on Friday for some bodywork. Afterward, we had a pancake breakfast with the Binghams in Boulder then drove up to the mountains for a little bit of cooler weather. We also helped Ben put his dog, Tigger, into his backpack so he could take him to work...priceless.
Bryce finally got to ride his DH bike at the Trestle Bike Park in WP with Jerry while I went for an epic XC ride with some good friends.
Winter Park local and all around MTB legend, Keith Sanders, took us on a super technical trail and at the top there was a sign in bullets called 'Redneck Run'. Ya never know what you're gonna get with this guy! Later Saturday afternoon, we said goodbye to Jerry, Keren and their dog Reilly, then headed to Colorado Springs with my parents. We raced dirt bikes on Sunday and it was great to have my parents finally get to see what that scene is all about. On our way back through Denver, we dropped them off at a hotel by the airport so they could easily catch their early AM flight. I believe a great weekend was had by all! It's always so nice to get the everyone together in one place for a few days :)
