Nice!

How was it? Hike-a-bike on the way up and mostly biking on the way down? Which route did you take?

Thanks, we summited via the Northeast TH. Pretty much hike-a-bike to the summit. We took the Southeast trail down to the CT then back over to the Northeast trail. Awesome loop!

Nice work! An impressive feat. How long did it take you to get down?

Thanks...it was under 3hrs to get down. We took our time enjoying the downhill and Aspen leaves changing.
