Unbound '02

Big Dave and "Captain Unbound" atop Rocky Mountain National Park

Unbound '02 was an encore year for the "Colorado Rockies" Ride, but this year there were only two riders -- Big Dave and myself.  This year's route included some different roads from the Unbound '99 ride.   In fact, about half of the ride was on new roads.  We covered 1,850 miles and crossed the Continental Divide 10 times.  This years highlights included -- Mount Evans (the highest auto road in North America at 14,150ft); Rocky Mountain National Park; Independence Pass; Loveland Pass; the "Million Dollar Highway"; Black Canyon and some spectacular motorcycle roads.

Although it was a small group, it was another success -- no wrecks, no new nicknames, no breakdowns, and no rain.  We were even able to avoid the incredible forest fires that were raging across the state.
