November 2007 - I had a window of time for play and I biked around Leadville in Lake County on a sunny afternoon. I wanted to train at a high elevation -- as I would be biking across America months later -- and Leadville seemed like the best option.

I cycled throughout town, including climbing a number of hills. Adjacent are three photos of the mountains. 14ers Mount Elbert and Mount Massive look so beautiful no matter where you are in town.

Leadville Hostel

On one climb, I stopped to rest in front of the Leadville Hostel. I've stayed there and do recommend it. It's a quality hostel.

I did a lot of riding. Adjacnet is the northerly view of town that includes the Mosquito Range. In the bottom photo, that's West Dyer Mountain, Mount Sherman (center) and Mount Sheridan (right).
