New toys, weddings, big rides - whoa, what a weekend!


You've probably seen a photo of this bike's frame several months this past winter. After a little impatience, I finally ordered a different fork than I had originally planned on using so I could actually get some use out of it this summer! I've never ridden a DH bike before, but I'm beyond excited to get after it. Bryce says it's just like riding a super lightweight dirt bike...giddy up :)

We joined some good friends on Saturday morning to take the infamous 8:10 bus up to Nederland for a day of mountain biking. It's very rare that we don't get turned around at least once or twice on our rides, but now that the entire trail system has been totally logged, I'm pretty certain we got lost a bit more than average. Needless to say, we all had a great time and enjoyed some high country singletrack and a bombing descent back down to Boulder.

Later that night, we attended close friends, Adrianne and Corey's wedding on top of Flagstaff Mountain.

The ceremony was stunning and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!

Adrianne and Corey are the utmost perfect couple and we all wish them the best of luck on their new adventure :)

The reception was at the UMC on CU's campus so the ''Just Married'' couple rode a tandem down the mountain from the ceremony. We definitely made sure to park along the way so they would have a large cheering section and a crazy fan to spark their attention.

The reception was a blast and as bike racers, it's always fun to see everyone all dressed up and looking good. We slept in late on Sunday then headed out for a tough interval session on the CX bikes up Four Mile. The rest of the day was spent getting Bryce's car ready to sell, going to the grocery and baking some delicious treats. It's been a while since we've stayed in town for the weekend and it felt great to get a lot of stuff done!
