We had a beautiful ride yesterday with a total of 14 bikes (4 joining en-route). The scenery was fantastic, and I believe it gets better every time I see it. A few Sangre De Cristo HOG brothers and sisters, whom we hadn’t seen in some time, joined us. We even had some folks that we’ve never ridden with join us! The group was fantastic and I for one really enjoyed talking with everyone. The High Country Restaurant in Chama set us up in the back room, and we had it to ourselves! After lunch, most of us made the loop North across Colorado Hwy17. As usual this stretch of road did not disappoint, with lots of cool air and beautiful scenery. We stopped for a quick break in Tres Piedras and some stopped for dessert. Others checked out the local real estate for future business potential While it was a bit warm after we left the mountains, the ride was well worth it! Thanks to everyone that participated, and for the rest of you that didn’t, you missed another great opportunity to get out and ride with your Sangre De Cristo HOG Chapter!!!
This was the largest ride of the year so far. I expect the August 11th ride to surpass this one, but 19 people is nothing to sneeze at, is it? Rob’s count of 14 bikes and one cage sounds, about right. It was great seeing Dennis and Cheryl there to meet us on their way back from Durango. We saw some new faces on Sunday, which was great! I passed out membership applications to them and they signed the necessary releases for the ride. At one point my bike read 105° while riding through Espanola. Overall, it was a great ride on a very hot day!
