Day 17 - 136 miles - Rawlins to Steamboat Springs
Long morning climb. Per was in bad shape. First hot day. Had to stop to avoid it for a spell.
The ride through Aspen Grove was nice.
Then I bombed downhill on our way towards Steamboat Springs. I'm surprised my bike didn't explode. It was super rocky, but super fun. I stopped to wait on everyone else, and we decided to ride on into the night, hoping to catch Cricket. It was a nice ride too. Steamboat was empty at night. We stopped in the Bunny Motel I think, something to do with rabbits. The desk guy said Cricket was staying there. Ordered a nice big pizza and we decided to sleep in the next morning.
