The Mount Evans Scenic Byway is the highest paved road in North America. This year it remains closed to cars so I’ve decided to bike to the top at 14,131ft starting from Echo Lake. About 28 miles RT.
I had to abort the first attempt last week at Summit Lake mostly because of the wind. This time I decided to push through no matter what. Lots of snow on the road still so the last few miles were painful but I made it.
Amazing views all along the road.
