Though it had been raining really hard, it suddenly cleared up. We only chatted for a few seconds before deciding to take Georgia Pass back over to Highway 285 rather than taking I-70 home. So we headed over to the trailhead and up the trail.
It was always a long, bumpy ride on the Breckenridge side of the trail. But now it's broken up by pretty tall berms of dirt here and there across the trail. You never could go very fast through that part of the trail, but now it would be impossible. We figured they were to stop erosion, but they're going to make some pretty fun dirt bike jumps.
That side is also the most fun, with some good climbs and descents. There are some rocky spots, but nothing gave us any issues.
The crowds we'd been seeing on the trails weren't on Georgia Pass, so it was a pretty quick trip to the top. It's always nice to see the old Continental Divide sign still standing and looking pretty good. From the pass, we could see the rain in the South Park valley below us, and it looked like they were getting drenched. It was clear and nice where we were, though.
The road down to Como is an easy one, but we were enjoying it. Shadows were getting long, but we'd be off of the trail well before sundown.
We found a wide spot near the bottom to air up. It was chilly, but at least it wasn't windy or raining. We'd really seen a lot in one day, and it was a great day of wheeling.
