As the start for our Mayor's Ride <http://www.bikeroute.com/NationalMayorsRide> from DC, on May 2,
looms ever and ever closer, the time is right to wet your chops for the best relay link we have to
offer: The Rocky Mtn roads that join Boulder, CO with Salt Lake City. This connection offers some of
the best bike riding to be found anywhere.

In my book Awake Again <http://www.bikeroute.com/AwakeAgain>, I, in somewhat worthy measure, talk
about the beauty of the highest highway in the world, Trailridge, at 13,000 feet, that makes up such
a big part of this connection. Here the thick forests that fully surround you, look like endless
carpets of rolling green each time you reach a lookout point. The unmatched sensation of then biking
above the tree line where the lunarscape that greets you has a surrealistic feel to it, ultimately
gives way to an unparalleled ocean of green by the time you roll to the other side of it. Here the
air almost feels supercharged. Here the sky feels boundless, expanding the size of your possibility
consciousness to minimize all of the challenge that lies before you not only on your ride but in the
game of life itself.

As a birth of fire, it was here that I became a Greenway builder. Successfully transcending
Trailridge's snowy fields (that's right, there is a while different weather pattern up at the top),
told me that I had fully transcended all of the residual difficulties brought on by the paralysis,
punctured lung and atrophied muscles that followed my two month coma and clinical death. I can't
wait for more Greenway builders to join me with Trailridge under their belt!
