Haute Route Rockies, BOOM.
Haute Route Rockies 2018
Haute Route Rockies is on, but Hawaii’s off. It’s with great regret that I’ve had top cancel the trip to Hawaii. With so much planning, time and money spent, it comes as a kick in the teeth. But, and it’s a very big but, every cloud has a silver lining. The plans have change. Now it’s all about the Rockies. With short notice I was able to book to do the Haute Route Rockies. In that way I’m very, very privileged.
So the intense training that I’ve done over the last 6 months has paid off. I was slow as a tortoise on return from Canada. Legs used to skiing, not so biking. But over the last few months my legs have come right. And just in time.
So I leave on Wednesday. I haven’t toured much of America, much less so Colorado. So this is a big adventure. 7 days of self indulgence. 7 days of just cycling. 7 days of pain. Self inflicted pain, but pain none the less. So long Hawaii, I do hope to be back.
From now on there’ll be regular updates about the Haute Route Rockies and other cycling adventures whilst I’m there. This isn’t the first time that I’ve embarked on doing the Haute Route. So far I’ve managed the Haute Route Alps, Dolomites and Ventoux. They’re all quite epic. So the silver lining is real.
