Charity Ride/Route from Pueblo to Colorado Springs
« on: July 30, 2008, 10:17:58 pm »
Can anyone recommend the best route from Pueblo, CO to Colorado
Springs.  We have a sister that lives there and it will be a great stop
over for them to have a hot meal and shower since there camping out
all along the way to save money.

My nephew Kyle and his friend Scott left last week on a 2-man benefit
bike ride across country. The benefit is for a man he worked with who
recently died from cancer and left behind a wife and three young
children.

Kyle works for a (Belmar NJ) bike shop. You can keep tabs on their
progress through the web link below. They will probably update on the
road when they have access to a computer. They were restricted to
carrying only 30 lbs. of gear - which included their tent and sleeping
bags.

I'm real proud of them, Kyle's a real good kid.

THey are are currently in VA where there plan to pick up the
Transamerica cycling trail

Local newspaper story about them here http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article
AID=/20080726/NEWS/807260385


Their blog is here. www.pedalingforalfie.blogspot.com
And if you see them on the road take a picture of them for their Moms
so they know they are OK.

Thanks for your attention.

Hwy 50 east to Penrose, then north on Hwy 115 into the Springs. A fair amount of traffic  but wide shoulders all the way and the ride up 115 is beautiful.
