Day 8 (54 miles)
We thought today would include bout 5500 feet of climbing, but in reality it turned out to be more like 3000 feet on mostly nice roads. We arrived at our destination (Steamboat Springs) much earlier than anticipated and made use of that time by completing some much needed bike maintenance. I changed out both brake pads, one brake rotor, the chain, dropper post wire and top tube bag. Steamboat Springs is nice and bicycle friendly. They have a bike path that goes the distance through town along the river so riding through town was nice.
