New found treasure and Pikes Peak

Waking up at our friends house in Evergreen is always a great way to start the day. We got up and packed up pretty early. We said bye to Spootz (Pete & Vebeke’s dog). We road out and had breakfast at Aspen Perk in Conifer Colorado. It was a nice little place.The food was good and the coffee was just what the doctor ordered.  

When I was making up this route for today’s ride, I remember sitting at the table at home trying to avoid the busy highways to get to the Pikes Peak Highway entrance. I stumbled across Colorado 67 &126, its called the Deckers area,  After do some research (This is a great site to have bookmarked) I found out that it was a paved road and one of the favorites for the local motorcycle community. It was FABULOUS! One of the best roads I have ridden in a while. Great tarmac, the scenery was amazing and absolutely NO TRAFFIC. It was a great way to have some fun after breakfast. We will be back on that road again in the future. I can assure you of that.
